    I'd use 15/0 circles more often than I would a 10/0 reg hook. I guess the circles just dont seem that big.

    Them 15/0 circles are big and nasty `Pull the insides out of a bic pen the wire is just as big around as the tube that holds the ink is.

    I usally use 12/0 mustad circles for bank poles, but the fish i've been catchin are making those look small. thought I'd try these big King Kat hooks. seem like a pretty comparable hook to the mustads. but the mustads are hard to find that large around here.

    Slim,
    No I've never seen the regular eagle claw circle sea hooks.

    The red 15/0 circle I posted the pic of are made By eagle claw, so i bet they are pretty similar. does the pic look about the same as you are using? a pack of ten was 6.99

    I'm gonna start a new thread for the bank pole question and maybe more will join and compare notes!! I'll pm ya and let you know where it is
