The result of a sharpening technique that gathers the metal fibers and squeezes them toward the center of the point. By compressing rather than cutting, VMC® has created a point equal or superior in sharpness to the best available and incredibly stronger.
Stainless Steel Hooks
VMC® stainless steel hooks do not rust and eliminate the need to change hooks regularly.
Each batch of VMC® stainless steel hooks is rigorously lab-tested in a salt spray chamber, under strict conditions in accordance with international standards including NF ISO 9227 and ASTM B-117. Hooks must pass VMC® extreme anti-corrosion tests before they are released for sale.
- Triple-reinforced wire for live bait fishing
- Ringed, forged, reversed
- Extremely sharp chemically-sharpened point
The specific geometry of the circle hook shape:
-results in a significantly higher percentage of lip-hooking (as opposed to deep-hooking),
-minimizes rough-handling and exposure time (quick hook removal),
-reduces damage to the fish and tackle,
-makes a great ally for catch-and-release anglers.
Reserved for special professional and premium the sport hook series, stainless steel is perfect for deep sea fishing, salmon and big fish.
