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.
I have to agree with Robert on his assessment on hook âbendabilityâ. I own several sizes in this model and truly only have issues with sizes #18 and smaller. Size #16 and larger, no problem and recommend. Size #18 and smaller, can not recommend.
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.
