All UltraPoint hooks feature Mustad's Micro Point Technology a unique, three-stage Opti-angle process that means Sharp Hooks Stay Sharper Longer. Mustad's custom steel alloy wire is Nor-Tempered for up to 30% more strength than standard wire hooks, and more confidence when battling a fish of a lifetime.
Mustad's Titan X Wacky / Neko Hooks were released at the by Mustad Pro, Kevin VanDam at Bassmaster Elite Series. They were unveiled them as part of his wire to wire victory on the St. Lawrence River - his 24th career Bassmaster win! "I landed over 90lbs of Big Smallmouth Bass - most of my fish were caught on soft plastic baits - wacky, dropshot, and neko rigging. These new hooks really did the job!"
"Those Big Smallmouth Bass are hard to hook and keep on your line, and this is the best holding hook for dropshot and wacky rigging I've ever had." VanDam continued, "First, these hooks are super sharp, and you'll really be blown away by the strength. This is a super light wire hook but unbelievably strong, even in the smallest sizes."
The TitanX Wacky / Neko hook features a wide gap Sproat Bend for powerful hook sets and excellent hook up to land performance. The long shank can be customized by adding weight, or a weed guard, and enhances dropshotting by ensuring that baits are positioned to help minimize the chance that fish will bump the line.
Other advantages of these new hooks are that Mustad's new TitanX finish is a non-reflective neutral color finish that is extremely slick, providing 4 times better penetration than standard finishes, for quick piercing hook sets.
