    Who all uses them? I bite the bullet last year and bought some for flatheads. I have to say I really like them for big live baits..

    Are you using the 10/0 or the 12/0? Any issues with these hooks? The largest hook I use is a 4/0 and have caught several big cats on them.

    I have just ordered a 20 hook assortment pack from Gamakatsu which includes 8/0 octopus circles, 6/0 octopus circles, 4/0 shiner hooks and 1/0 baitholder hooks. I figured I'd give these a shot and see how they do.

    The gamakatsu big river hooks only come in 10/0 & 12/0 sizes. I personally only use them when using large gut pockets or heads. They are to expensive to lose for normal fishing situations...
