Gamakatsu Treble SP Extra Heavy Treble Hooks
February 15, 2017, 01:09:53 PM
Has anyone had any experience with these hooks? Loved the Gt recorders and other experience with gamakatsus. Are these hooks worth it?

Ed, what are you planning to use these hooks for?

I am using these for smaller to medium sized stickbaits and poppers.

They only come in a size up to 4/0 but they don't miss you! I haven't used them myself but pretty sure they would be fine for smaller lures. You might find Owner ST76s to be cheaper

Does anyone have any experience with Owner st 68 hooks. Are they the same as st 66 or stronger? Nic

I couldn't seem to find these hooks anywhere online but then I found that they are in fact named STX-68.

This link states "Dimensions and weight are the same as the ST-66 but stronger!"

I tried them when first released. A good hook. Definitely stronger than the ST-66
