I am trying to find the best light wire hook for pouring shaky heads. Are there any suggestions? I'd prefer to stick with Mustad, Owner, or Gamakatsu, but am open to any suggestions. Also, where is the best place to purchase them?

I like the flat eye mustad round bend in a 3/0. Can be bought at JannsNetcraft, Barlows tackle, Staminainc.com many places.

Started with that Mustad b/c it fit several other molds I own, and had about 1500+ of them. After throwing lots of them at Table Rock I switched to Gamakatsu, The Mustads were point rolling, and not penetrating. I would bring a brownie to the boat and find it made it in by line pressure but never penetrated. Not worked loose, just never ever penetrated, no hole at all.

Generally don't have that problem with the Mustad hook in other molds, but those are usually fished on jig rods, not 6# and a spin rod.
