    I love circle hooks, but wont use anything from eagle claw agin..To many bad experinces...The last box of 50 I bought had 18 hooks that were unusable.

    Eagle Claw's King Kahle hooks are excellent hooks.

    I have had good experiences with this hook. They seem to dull rather quickly though and you have to keep them good and sharp.

    i think they are a good hook, but i think the gamakatsu octopus hooks are alot sharper and stay sharper
