I have been using the 12/0 Atkins hook for about 2 weeks in my Guide Business, Bluecatters Pro Guide Service fishing daily.. Great hooks for all sizes of blues from eaters to.Monsters. Love Them!
Look, I'll be straight-up.
Have I tried every hook out there? No, I have not.
Have I tried a bunch and settled for a while on a couple? Absolutely.
I'm a specific type of angler. I'm in my kayak. I have a specific system that requires every single part of my rig from the rod all the way to my hook...to work together as a team.
My Beast Slayer 12/0 are where my allegiance lies now. I gave them a trial run all of 2022 and they didn't let me down a single time. Not one.
They're sharp, strong, and the shape is perfect for what I'm doing.
Additionally...the customer service is at the top of the mountain. The hooks come in a really sweet (and useful) metal container. The owner takes care of everyone the same...whether you're personal friends or just someone who happened upon the brand. Everyone gets the same customer service...and that's highly valuable these days.
My kayak is parked here and will be until I'm done chasing giants from my kayak...so pretty much until I'm laid to rest.
