have been using eagle claw 375 freshwater size1 in rivers and 1/0 in surf for 23years have had 1 fail and found it hadn’t been tempered. one a 20lb fish broke the weld of 1 and pulled one side out to 90deg but it never let go. have that hook as a ‘trophy’ on my fishing room wall. Saw 18 fish caught at macintoshs today, weight getting better know 3-18lb fish caught last 2 days. on a personal note have netted 13 fish for people last 3 days and still bloody can’t get one myself, been about a month now. probably the new rods fault- not ‘broken’ yet.
