Tube X Mold - Hook options
« on: 07/05/18 07:20 UTC »
On the tube x mold, other than the specified 410/413, what other hooks are people using successfully in these.  I would prefer to stay with a fine or medium hook, rather than a heavy 60 degree.

Thank you

Use the Eagle Claw 2729 black platinum from a 1/0 and up. If using a 3/0 or 4/0 you'll want a Mustad 32729 or the VMC 7219. Don't make the mistake of thinking the Eagle Claw hooks aren't good, the newer black platinum hooks are as good, if not better, than the Mustads.

100% agree on this statement. The 32500BN series Mustads are awfully good hooks too, if you're looking for a 90 degree leg.
