Re: Hooks Hooks and Hooks


Black magic is a brand I favour.Mainly because their pre tied flasher rigs and other rigs along with there big range of supple and tuff traces..the list goes on,is all quality stuff no matter where it is manufactured.
At the end of the day though hooks are hooks and they are all different but when buying I look at design and thickness of the shank and if possible check that they are “sticky” sharp,rather than looking for brand names I mean after a few beatings in the surf all hooks go blunt,bent and rusty with age.Alot of hooks I have bought have come out of bulk boxes so theres no knowing who made them.
Now question ; Has anybody bought those long cast pulley rigs that use that impact bait release sheild? I got a couple and put 1 together but when hooked up it seems fairly tight and I was wondering wether the sheild release would let go of the hook everytime without fail?? Any experience with these?? I got them from hunting & fishing I think the brand is HOOK.
