    Jeff I have used the 7/0 sickle hook. Good hooks, and the sharpest I have ever tried to Snell. You will be stuck before you know it. I would recommend them. They are sold by Wild Wolf Products.

    I agree with Mick, by far the sharpest i've ever seen. Look at em wrong, your bleedin. Wild Wolf is a good man to deal with also, i highly recommend giving him a shot.

    Jeff I have used them for a few years and I love them. They are my go to hook when I target Channels, I have no issues with them at all. Then again that is to be expected when you order something from WildWolf.

    They are a awesome hook. You ought to try a Kat Bobber while your at it. It was the best move I made last year.

    I generally like them. I got a small pack of them last summer, had good luck with hook up's, so I bought a big pack this fall. I use the 7ot Matzuo's.

    I will report one thing about the last outing using them. I went fishing a few weeks ago in the Mississippi River, there was a ton of floating ice and the water temp was around 30 degrees. I was snagged and had to try and break off to get my pole un snagged. The hook broke right at the shaft. First time I broke a hook on a snag. I really hope it's just a one time bad hook. i like using them but have lost a bit of confidence. I will still use them and report back.

    When I ordered KatBobbers, they included a sample pack of Matsuo sickle hooks. They worked great, would recommend both the hook and WildWolf Products without hesitation.
