I have currently been using either the kvd triple grip mustads or gamu ewg hooks on my cranks. I am wondering how the vmc barbarian and oshaunnessy bend hooks compare in performance. I am looking for a better priece on hooks than what im paying now (7$/11) since i cant find the kvd or gamu's i want in bulk and have even had a member check on shortys in the past (but not again recently).
i am a big fan of the kvd hooks but not the price. I hooked my thumb last fall past the barb with one and barely felt it go in (out is a diffrent story). The vmc hooks i am looking at are about half the price i have found. I like the sharper bend and wider gap short hooks on my cranks and feel i lose less fish to throwing with this design. I am just looking for a better value for my money with out sacrificing quality.
