I ordered the size 22# hooks and I must say I am quite impressed with the strength
of them especially for the small diameter wire. Also very sharp plus the price is unbeatable.
The Mustad C49S hook has a weight, shape and gape that make it great for buzzers (chironomids), brassies and scuds. I've also used C49S for caddis-imitating soft hackles to fish on the surface or just below it. Unlike another reviewer I've never lost a fish due to a bent or broken C49S hook. But I did bend a couple of size 18's in the vise when I was being careless.
I originally used Mustad hooks when I first started this hobby a long time agao. Coming back to it I would not use any other brand. An awesome product and reliable. I have never had a problem or an issue with Mustad. These are really nice for the scuds and wets that need that little bit of a hump to look good.
