I use Gamakatsu and XPoint single hooks, but picked up some

Owners for the first time yesterday. Sportsman's Warehouse

has selected sizes 1/2 off, 28 5/0 EWG Offset Worm Hooks for

$10. My standard size is 4/0 so this will be a bit of an experiment.

Otherwise, I am very impressed with VMC treble hooks and Mustad

on some of my jigs. I have never had an issue with these hooks or

those listed in the first paragraph.

I only buy Gamakatsu hooks, but baits that come with other hooks don't get changed out if they are decent. Rapala uses VMC I think and they are great hooks, and alot of the jigs I use have a heavy mustad hook and those are good too.

Catch most of my plastics bass on Slider Hooks. I use the Spider Hooks 2 3/4 " I think usually 1/16th oz, and 3/8th's. They work great for most baits I use. They can  bend sometimes with a larger fish, but never lost a fish to a broken hook.

Depends on the hook and the application?

What kind of hooks?  

For typical soft plastics stuff, my fav is the Mustad Ultra-Lock

For trebles, I think Owner probably makes the best one out there.

Owners are the best. Gamakatsu hooks are quickly becoming worse than Eagle Claws.

Worse than eagle claws? I could break the points off of all my gammys and they would still be sharper than eagle claws. ;)

To answer the question: I fish gammys but I wouldn't feel disadvantaged at all if I had to use owner, mustad or VMC, they all make awesome hooks.

Let me be the nut here and say that I think owner hooks are too hard. Ive had several owner worm hooks actually break before they bend.
