Revision of a classic hook

Reviewer: A viewer from California USA

A few years ago, some tyers deplored the replacement of the classic 94840 with the Signature Series R50 version. With the R50, Mustad gave us a highly refined version of their old standard. The benefits from modern hook manufacturing are obvious, with nice proportions, a tiny barb, and an improved finish. This is a great value in a name brand hook, proving that you don't have to spend twice as much for high quality.

A good hook

Reviewer: A viewer from Hamilton, MI US

Well suited for wet flies, and dry flies, but I prefer the R30 for dry flies.

Great universal dry/wet hook!

Reviewer: A viewer from Saskatchewan, Canada

This is a great hook for both dries and wets. I especially like this hook for soft hackles fished in the surface film. The R50 is beautifully proportioned, is very sharp, has a tiny barb (that can easily be flattened without damaging the hook), and is very strong (I've never had one break). In addition to the R50, I tie on 5 other Mustad signature hook models which in my opinion are also superb.

wider gap

Reviewer: A viewer from Alpha, NJ US

I like the new r50 as apposed to the old 94840. This new model has a wider gap, a wee bit wider than the tmc100 and a heck of a lot cheaper and sharper.

Great product

Reviewer: A viewer from Little Elm, TX US

I originally tied with Mustad hooks when I first got into the hobby. Coming back to it again I would not use any other brand. An awesome product. I would not recomend any other brand.
