The traditional hook point with excellent penetration capacity. This standard hook point is the most widely manufactured in the world. All VMC® hooks beginning with the number “9” have a standard Cut Point, unless otherwise indicated.
- "This very heavy duty circle hook has been designed to meet increasing tournament regulations in areas of the world where circle hooks are required to be flat (non-reversed). In order to obtain the maximum level of resistance on each hook, VMC® uses the finest quality of high carbon steel and fully forges the hook from the eye to the middle of the point. This forging allows ref 9789 to use lighter, thinner wire than other hooks on the market and still obtain a better resistance to opening. Being thinner, the penetration is significantly improved. The forged point will resist outrageous amounts of pressure without bending. Fishing with braided line, multi-speed reels and heavy rods is not an issue anymore!"
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.
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.
