This strong, forged Mustad Beak hook features a reversed hook point for improved hook hold. It permits the point to come in contact with the mouth of the fish, without turning. The beaked hook design offers great hookset and holding power throughout the fight. This bait holder hook features two barbs on the shank to better hold the bait in position and obscure the point. Depending on the size of the hook you can use it for targeting most species. Coated with Mustad's own Nickel finish, which are 4 times as rust resistant as traditional Nickel. The result is a sharper, sleek new point shape with penetration resistance 50% lower than standard Classic Hook points.
