Versatility, value & guality
Reviewer: A viewer from LA QUINTA, CA USA
The gape isn't quite as generous as what you'll find on a true stinger hook like TMC 8089 or Gamakatsu's B10S, but it still makes a terrific "bass bug" hook not to mention streamers. They made a great hook for some Alaskabou and Popsicle patterns last seaason, and I plan on trying them with some other steelhead/salmon patterns in the near future. Sticky sharp, strong, and a nice finish, all at a fair price.
B10S is a better choice
Reviewer: A viewer from NJ, USA
This isnt a bad hook at all. Its actually very well made as far as the strength. The only reason that it got 2 stars is the angle of the point. It has plenty of gap but the point itself is pointed too far upward towards the shank. No such issue with the B10S.
Good for bass, but..

Good hook if you're tying up flies like Todd's Wiggle Minnow or other topwater bass flies. My only complaint is that it could definitely have a wider gap. The Gamakatsu version (B10s ?) is a little better, but this one works fine.

Not only is the hook strong, the girth of the hook and length allow for fine fly tying, especially when it comes to tying Dahlbergs. I find that it provide a great length to tie such intricate flies. They are very strong and have proven themselves on the fiesty and hard-mouthed Saratogas in Australia
nice hook model
Reviewer: A viewer from Rehobeth, AL US
This hook is a stable platform for spinning deer hair. It appears to be well designed for it's intended purpose. VERY sharp out of the box, and the shank length gives great versatility for different patterns. It's great for foam divers (Stealth Bomber) and foam gurglers too (Gartside style). The slightly recurved point style lends itself well to a mono loop weedguard. Even better than the hooks, was J Stockard's customer service- there was an error in my order regarding my hooks, and James had it corrected within hours. Quality products and dedicated personal attention keep me coming back to J Stockard.
