A special "Claw Hook" with ultra-thin and extremely sharp hook tip turns 15 degrees inwardly for perfect hook sets. The large hook bend of Gamakatsu Specialist 'R hook keeps particularly well at elevated pressure. Stays sharper longer. Carp have sensitive sucker-lips. They’ll drop a bait the second they feel anything sharp. That’s why we’ve carefully shaped all the new G Carp hooks to hide perfectly concealed within every type of bait.
