    i found some 8/0 kahle hooks made by kahle horizontal fish hook co.
    these hooks look just like eagle claw hooks thay are the bronze hooks
    thay are $5.99 for 100 thay had 200 i hope thay are decent cause i got all 200 probly have to sharpen theam up more but i sharpen the eagle claws but at that price i just had to try theam out as long as thear stronge i can live with sharpening theam at that price have any of you tried theam?
    this will give me something to do tying more leaders lol
    i ben using 4/0 as that was the bigest i could finde around hear
    i have tyed 100 4/0 now get 100 8/0 tyed i should be in good shape for the 2009 catfish seasen

    St. Croix, ya said a mouth full there brother. I have some of their bass rods and love em. As far as the hooks, Kale is my style. Can't for the life of me get the hang of circle hooks. Guess i bass fished to long and want to help the fish get stuck.:smile2:

    Dallas it sounds like you are getting the terminal tackle in order. I have always liked the kahle hook. It is the best of both worlds. You can set the hook or let the fish hook its self.

    I love the kahle hook, however the ones you are talking about are junk. They are brittle and break before 30 pound big game. Take and pair of pliers and bend them and you will see.
    For smaller fish I bet the would work but for bigger fish or fish in structure I wouldnt trust them.
    I will stick to the Eagle Claws. They are a tough hook and are priced right.
    Just my opinion.

    I haven't tried the ones you mentioned...but I do like the Eagle Claw 9/0 King Kahles. They are a good strong hook and plenty sharp right out of the box! I gave $17 for a box of 50.:crazy:

    I bought some from ebay at the same price, so its probably the same seller, and they have worked great for me so far no problems.
