The unique design of the technical locking curve allows a maximum transfer of energy towards the point while setting the hook. This results in a faster and more effortless penetration of the point and up to 25% improved hooking rate.
The hook’s V shape locks the fish close to the shank, applying less pressure on the point. This prevents big fish from opening the hook and self-releasing.
Tests have proven that the unique geometry of the VMC® Barbarian® shape increases a hook’s resistance to opening.
Carbon stabilizes iron during temperature changes. The higher the level of carbon, the stronger steel.
VMC® uses premium-quality high carbon steel to allow for a thinner hook with the highest quality point and durability.
