A special “claw hook” with ultra-thin and extremely sharp hook tip turns 15 degrees inwardly for perfect hook sets. The large hook bend of Gamakatsu Specialist R hook keeps particularly well at elevated pressure. Stays sharper longer. Carp have sensitive sucker-lips. They’ll drop a bait the second they feel anything sharp. That’s why we’ve carefully shaped all the new G Carp hooks to hide perfectly concealed within every type of bait.
