Hayabusa Spin Muscle Wacky Hook

Recommended Posts

Looking for this hook in a 1/0.  Have only found it at Tacklewarehouse but they are backordered indefinitely.  Anyone know who else sells them?  Thx...

Bought them from TW...they didn't work well for me,

broke two of them. Either a bad batch, or design. I'm

a finesse guy, so I'm not usually breaking hooks...

 

Not sure where else to look other than sites like aliexpress.com

or something like that.

Thx for the suggestion Darren.  Just got confirmation from TW that in fact they do have the Spin Muscle wacky hooks just back in stock and on its way...

 

Sorry to hear they broke on you.  I actually bought my first pak last summer when I was having so much trouble with my wrist.  I couldn't make very good hook sets and fish were coming unbuttoned.  These hooks really seemed to help in both categories.  Ordered 2 more paks this spring and also had good luck.  No breakage of the hook, just the line a few times unfortunately - hence the new order.  

 

Always looking for good hook recommendations from other 'finesse' guys - curious what you've had luck with?  Thanks,  -Fry

Sickle hooks seem to be the easiest to set and keep on for me, but don't work for everything obviously.

Probably the best I've been using are Gamakatsu Split/Drop

hooks - they're thin wire, penetrate extremely well. That's not

to say the Hayabusa didn't do that, because they did. I just 

lost confidence after the breaks. And IIRC, the breaks happened

at the first or second bend after the barb....

 

I also use Gammy Finesse Wide Gap, but they're a thicker wire

than the Split/drop. Have yet to try Aaron Marten's new Gammy

hook based on the Split/drop.
