Taking this already successful pattern to a new level. The finely-tuned extended gape of the hook increases the hooking power even more, making it deadly in the modern rigs of today. Whilst still incorporating the in-turned beaked point to aid hooking and help prevent blunting of the point in gravelly swims, the Wide Gape Talon Tip also features the 5 degree in-turned eye to help pull the hook home securely and keep it safely in position during the fight. By removing the offset of the original pattern we have improved the hook?s ability to ?prick? the instant the hook bait is taken. Constructed from the same ?bomb proof? ultra-strong forged wire of the original so you can be certain that the strength is unparalleled across the size ranges ensuring this hook can confidently be used in the most extreme fishing situations for catching the biggest carp that swim...anywhere. This is the No.1 hook to use for fishing near snags or in weed. Available in Sizes 4, 6, 8 and 10 in Barbed or Barbless. inchI've been genuinely impressed with the Wide Gape Talon Tip, during the field testing that I've done. The T-Tip always was a tough hook for testing conditions, but now, with the extended gape, this pattern is ruthless - carp don't seem to be able to swim away from them! inch (Lewis Read) Covert Wide Gape Talon Tip Hooks are also available.
