    I understand the raptors are to be phased out.

    Thats why I have stocked up on D7's.

    Best thing about Raptors is the name - great name for a hook..

    I'm a bit surprised that nobody else has mentioned Kamasan Animal. They suit me

    I've still got a packet of those in a size 8 spade end from years ago, they were one of the larger hooks that actually came in a spade pattern and a ruddy decent sized spade it is too.

    Drennan Super Spades or Kamasan Animal when float fishing. Nash Fang Gaper when fishing meat, pellet or boilie.

    Pallatrax The Hook. Excellent for big fish in every size from 14 to 2.

    The new drennan hooks Cryogen Grippers are excellent too, finer in the gauge than the Pallatrax.

    I've only used the Guru QM1 size 10 once, and caught a 15lb barbel and am now sold on this hook for pellet fishing.

    Another hook that I find pretty good over gravel is the Korda teflon wide gape hook.

    If I need a slightly longer shank then I often use Drennan Specialist and Super Specialist hooks.

    It usually depends on the baits I'm using and how I'm trying to present them.

    Have to agree with you on the Fox SSBP's,trouble is they've discontinued them Keith,even though I still have some left i'm on the lookout for a similar hook,i've bought some of the guru umgb hooks and these look good,for maggot feeder work I like the Drennan SS barbel,mainly because I like straight point hooks for maggot.

    I used these for a long time and caught quite a few fish. Then i got it into my head that they were too shiney Totally irrational as i had caught Perch, Roach, Barbel etc on them without any problem Why does this happen sometimes?

    P.S. i think it was something to do with seamless hooks like the Korum and Owner one's

    I see the fear of all things shiny,but in this day and age with so much litter thrown in and around water,there is plenty of things that shouldn't be,that are,the scene in one of the barbel days and ways here there are coke cans and others sitting in amongst feeding barbel.
