Lc Pointer Replacement Hooks

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what size hooks come on the pointer 100 and 78?  Are they gamakatsu hooks?  I thought they were round bend #6 gama's but they are too small.

I don't see many #5 available, even TW LC replacement hooks weren't available in #5.  If I go up to say a #4 gama round bend or down to #6 KVD what kind of differences can I expect?  I'd like them to still suspend after changing the hooks.

Maybe a #4 Gama magic eye shortshank would work. You would need to weight each on a gram scale to be precise.

 

I have these Gama and #4 KVD short shank I could have weighed in grams if you like.

 

I will take a stock hook off a 100sp and a 78sp and weigh that too friday.

I've got some magic eye #6 shortshanks, and some #4 KVD's already.  l put 2 kvd triple grips on a pointer 100 and sank like a rock.  I suppose going down a size would make it float, then i could put some suspend dots on it if I had to.

VMC Short shank size 5- They're available at Cabela's BPS, and almost every other retailer of note.

But wouldn't a short shank #5 be lighter than the stock #5?

The Short shank VMC matches up perfectly with the pointer hook.

It's the 9650.  It's a 1x hook, and not technically a short shank, but it's a shorter shank than other RB trebles.  I believe the 9651 is their true short shank.

Regardless, the 9650 in #5 is a perfect match.

Agreed. So far this hook seems to be the best replacement for the money to keep it suspending correctly for me.
