    Try closing the barbs. If you do that dont let any slack in the line. I rarrely have a problem with kahles. I just take the hook and roll it out.

    Yeah What Kyle Said Or Try Uping The Size I Sometimes Use The 9/O For Bigger Channels And You Don't Have To Use Pliers I Know It Might Be Overkill However The Hooks Come Out Very Easily:smile2:.

    Hope This Helps.

    I use kahles, and haven't had any problems removing them. Like arkriver said, just roll it out. Can't just push or pull it out. It has to come out the way it went in.
