    I love super sharp hooks! So far, the sharpest one I've found are the ones from Gamakatsu.

    What has been your experience??

    Gama's a damn sharp hook, but a sickle hook from wild wolf will hurt you.

    I would say a dead tie between gama and mustad for best hooks, i use both and the both work well for both live and dead bait....RAT

    Anybody here wanna go thru my tackle box?

    I have many, many, many types of hooks in there... But here are the top 3 that I can think of currently!

    The 3 sharpest most deadliest are:

    Gama - Circles - 8/0, 9/0
    Matzuo - Trophy Kat Sickle - 7/0, 10/0
    Team Catfish - Double Action - 5/0, 7/0

    They are NOT in any particular order, just listing the 3 that I know of!

    The sickle hook is extremely sharp. I snell several hooks each year and the sickles stick me the most.

    The sickle hooks are nasty, sticky, sharp. :eek:oooh: I think that they might grab meat faster than the Gama or Daiichi hooks. I just bought some of the Charlie Brown hooks that Wild Wolf sells... I haven't opened them yet, but they sure do look scary sharp.

    But, my standard hook is still the Gama, although I've been very impressed with the Eagle Claw circle hooks I've been using in smaller sizes.

    The Gama and Mustad are really sharp hooks imo.

    Likewise on the Gamas, though Mustads are darn sharp too.

    I used to think EC Lazer Sharp hooks were sharp until I tried the Gamas. In comparing the Eagle Claws are about as sharp as tire irons
