Guest THE BIG WORM

Actually there will be a full line of 4 to 6 styles by mid-year. Suprise to see them advertised this early.....if someone orders them post if they actually arrive. The Gamakatsu regional manager from the Pacific Northwest and I discussed there coming to the States at a dealers show in October.....they were talking May- June for their arrival. One of the models is based off the "Japan Only" Teflon wide gap carp hook. Will be nice to see them here.9

Another big change in the Carp World is the Okuma Avenger series has undergone a make over and will start to arrive as the old stock gets sold out......If you need to match some of of these you may want to act quik......the knew designs has alot more "Bling" to the colors and markings and don't look at all like the last model.

How many in a pack? Their globug hooks are very similar to the second pattern, a real workhorse hook, and are widely available for $7-8 for 25.

EDIT: first link says ten-pack, I assume that applies to both. Still reasonable, but I'd rather buy 25-50 at once.

Because they're backorder, you must order 5 packs minimum- still can't complain though- price is great and I'm not looking to stop using hooks anytime soon!

yup. You can never have too many hooks. I stock up a lot. At times I think I am being wasteful because, I change hooks a lot. always want a sharp hook. I dont bother to sharpen them. Throw out and tie another. always stay fresh

Has anyone received their order yet? I had one e-mail saying the hooks would be shipped sometime after 2/7 but no sign of them yet.

Got an email this morning appologizing for the hooks still not being in stock, and asking if I wished to cancel my order.

I generally find the two concepts of top quality and low cost to be in opposition to each other; I hope this works out!

Hooks arrived today- look like a similar gauge to the Solar 101's and are as sharp as any I've used in the past. All in all, couldn't be happier. Now to tie up some rigs!

Mine arrived on Saturday. They look pretty good. Hard to tell for sure without putting them to the test.

Did you guys get both the Super and the Specialist? Besides the 15 degree bend, are the Supers that much stronger(carbon steel) feeling, looking? Was wondering if they both were 10 packs? Looks like you bought up all the Size 8's LOL!

Moon,

Did you get yours from Cabelas?

They only list 2 types, the Super & the Specialist R.

Your pic clearly shows Specialist - Thicker version of Specialist R, which means there must be 3 types. Thanks
