this is the reply i recieved from trokar. Hi Rick, Thanks for the email and checking out the Lazer TroKar hook. We are certainly thrilled with the new technology that has allowed us to make the sharpest fishhook in the world. The reception has been great and we are excited about the future. TroKar will eventually be expanding from the bass market. We have requests from numerous anglers for a variety of different styles and shapes. I assure you that we have not forgotten the catfish guys!! The Kahle is a great hook that has a lot of cross-over to different species. It's on the to-do list!!
