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.
COASTAL BLACK® Finish
Extreme corrosion resistance for the longest lasting black finish in the saltwater market. The new Coastal Black® finish, unique to VMC is the ultimate combination of an innovative coating for extreme corrosion resistance and a premium hook finishing process for maximum sharpness.
- Forged, reversed hook
- Suitable for boat fishing using fish and crab baits
- Also very popular for fishing the flats
- Hi-Carbon steel for sizes 4/0 to 8/0
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.
VMC® Vanadium® hooks owe their success to their lightness allied with their incredible resistance : up to 25% increased strength.
VMC® Vanadium® steel is perfect for any finesse style hooks that require instant penetration.
