In development for over eight months, these new GenomicMGP hooks have a micro-ground point, making them incredibly sharp. We have also used 130 grade carbon steel to ensure strength and durability, while the finish is dull non-flash black for rig concealment. They are forged with a fifteen degree in-turned eye to help the hook turn on the 'take'. The point is leaning in very slightly but, rather than being beaked, it is straight with a wide gape, which gives better hooking potential. These hooks are chemically etched and then have a final additional micro-grinding on the points - this MGP process leaves the points very fine and fast-piercing.
