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.
- Reversed Circle hook
- Highly popular for commercial fishing
- Widely used on the US West Coast
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.
