Thread: longshanks

  1. #1


    I have been tying lots of rigs with different hook patterns,hooklink materials,hair lengths and setups.

    I have found thayt when gragged across the palm the longshank hooks turn much faster and more often than conventional or widegape hooks!

    I know they are mostly used with popups or critically balanced baits.

    I would like to know if you lot have found the same and if any of you use them for bottoms?

    B175 on mono for bottom baits works well for me.

    Ive been using some G4 barbless Raptors, not exactly a long shanked hook but certainly not a pattern I would use if the wide gaped offset hooks had been available. I have to admit that being barbless and of a straightish shank I had my doubts about them. I couldnt have been more wrong, they hook and hold and the point is one that holds its sharpness, all in all a pleasant surprise.

    I use longshank nailers and agree they turn better. I use them with bottom baits almost exclusively too.
