The round bend has a slightly wider gap than the O’Shaughnessy and results in better and easier setting of the hook, but may open more easily. A high percentage of freshwater applications will use round bend trebles to benefit from the wider gap.

VMC® uses premium-quality high carbon steel to allow for a thinner hook with the highest quality point and durability.
