    I always use Gama octopus hooks. anywhere from 1 to 7/0 depending on where I'm fishing and what I'm fishing for. I've also heard good things about Mustad...but I have great confidence in Gama's, so why change?

    I use the gamma "offset" circles.. ultra sharp,and they last, providing i dont get snagged up, and even when i do there's been a few times i was some how able to pull it lose, there was one time, i was locked down big time in something from HELL, well some how i FINELY get lose and all it did was bent the tip, got my pliers out and bent it back and went back to fishing, with no misses b/c of a doll hook :smile2:
