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.
- VMC® Tournament Circle Hooks offer the largest gap in their category for an optimal hooking rate and more room for baiting. Their non-offset design complies with increasing tournament regulations insisting on flat circle hooks.
- Regular Ring
- Regular Shank
- Extra Wide Gap
- Non-Reversed (Non-Offset)
- Regular Wire
- Hi-Carbon Steel
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.
