Mustad style 10121NP-DT, these hooks are 7X Strong, feature a big eye, thick gauge wire and a short shank. Perfect for replacing saltwater lure treble hooks.
I purchase the Mustad inline hooks to replace the treble hooks on my saltwater lures. First the Duratin coating on these Mustad hooks are the best rust and corrosion resistance hooks on the market. These hooks stay rust and corrosion free while on and off the water. The hooks tips are uniquely shaped so the tips don't get dull or broken off when fished around jetties or rocky reef bottoms. That means better hook sets and better sharpness retention. Mustad has the leader in the field position locked up for their Duratin coating.
The inline hooks are stouter than the wire treble hooks that come on the majority of lures. Stouter means stronger and that means zero hook deformation like treble hooks are known for. Also treble hooks hook their owners far more times than single tipped inline hooks. I want good hook set but in me. The single tipped hook all but rarely eliminates angler hook ups. The Mustad inline hooks are more aerodynamic and more hydrodynamic when cast and retrieved. I can cast further and retrieve the lure with more efficiency and with maximized lure action. Treble hooks snuff out the performance of a lure where the Mustad inline hooks kicks lure performance off the charts.
Bottomline is that by switching out the treble hooks that common on new lures my lures preform better, last longer, cast further, hook set many times better and I catch more fish. The stoutness of the inline hooks allows me to hook and land fish much larger than any treble hook could ever match.
Again, thanks for your great customer service and your interest in why I bought this product. As you probably can tell I am a true believer in Mustad hooks and especially their new inline hooks. I expect some time down the line other anglers will stumble onto the benefits of inline hooks replacing their weak and low performing treble hooks. You can bet I have replaced all my treble hooks with the Mustad Duratin inline hooks on all my lures in all my boxes.
