    It doesn't give the mfg. name so it would be hard to say if anyone has used them or not.

    Give it a try.

    They look just like the Gamakatsu to me .In one of this guys other auctions he says they are Gamas this will be sweet to get 100 gamas for 7 or 8 bucks.

    I saw a young 22 inch cat just this weekend straighten out a 1/0 thin wire circle hook just like this pic here. Look at the eye on it- the hole of the eye is not much bigger than the thickness of the shank.

    Buyer beware. If its thin wire, which I believe it is, its not gonna get you a cat... The cat will make a straight barbed toothpick out of it.:crazy:

    you really have to watch those cheap hooks. i tried some from wally world and they weren't any good at all. they didn't straighten, they just broke. i believe those were made with bad metal. not to say the ones you are looking at aren't any good. just watch them. still might be worth a try being they are so cheap.

    if you look on the sellers other page he has 50 Gamakatsu 7/0 hooks for a high bid right now of $3.78 and if you look at the picture of those hooks it looks just like the picture you're looking at for the 100 hooks.

    I was looking at these also, and was concerned with what they might be. So I bought some 6/0 that he had on auction, they were advertised as gama's. I will let you know when I get them. I should get them early next week.

    Ha, I got 200 of them setting right here. They look just like a 7/0 gama but the color is slightly different and they aren't as sticky sharp (some are). The steel seems as strong but I haven't got to try them yet maybe it will rain soon and Ill try them out. But if you got a sharpener they are nice at a great price.

    I bought some a couple of years ago, can't remember if it is the same guy, but was the same kind of deal. Sal is right, them hooks would straiten out way to easy so I put em back on ebay and got my money back.
