  For some reason guys alway make six inches larger than it really is.

Mine isn't nearly as large.
I received my 2.25" ES Paddletail from Barlow's today.  Looks absolutely perfect for my intentions.

Owner 5313 #1 will go into the Erie 1/8 oz. and tote these smaller, very-common-sized Shad bodies shot in Hard.  Probably Silver Pearl but you know how We are 🤣
It appears the aft side of the 1/8 oz. Erie will match up to the front of this plastic quite well, rounding out the Shad profile plenty well-enough.

I see throwing this bait as a single bait or a double.  It's a versatile size that Sacalait, many versions of Bass, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Redfish will love to gobble.  I'll have to get a bigger size or two of 5313s for the heavier targets.

Overall lure length when rigged will be a little over 2.5", which is a size common to even Bass Cranks.

That 2.25" ES Paddletail is a sweet little bait. Dresses up real nice with some eyes.

Received the Owner 5313 #1 hooks today.  Talk about nice!
This is what a 90-degree jig hook should be.  Surprisingly-stout, but they're Owner 😁
Just ordered some 5313 2/0 for the bigger size, after comparing the #1 against Barlow's awesome grid display of the hook sizes.

I love a #1 jig hook for most of my smaller 'heads for freshwater, usually aimed at Sacalait and White Bass, and others of their size range.  This 5313 #1 will handle rigors of braided line and fish bigger than typically targetted with this size of hook, so call it an insurance policy.

Gary....You're on the coast. Do you see any finish durability differences between the black nickel and bronze finishes on hooks when fished in brackish/fresh water? I've noticed since switching to using black nickel finished hooks from bronze that the hooks are immensely sharper out of the box and stay sharper much longer than bronze hooks, but I have also seen darned near a total lack of rusting issues with the black nickel hooks as compared to bronze finished hooks.

I really like those 1/0 and 2/0 5313 Owner hooks in 1/8 and 1/4 ball heads with keepers for casting walleye plastics off a Mississippi River's breakwater's rip rap. Dragging jigs thru all that rock can be hard on points but these hooks seem to stay sharp a LOT longer in spite of the aggressive crap I toss them into. Other Aberdeens of the same sizes won't hold up as well.

Roger on'nat, Tom!
I despise bronze hooks.  I moved away from bronze hooks many years ago and I won't go back to them.

Bronze hooks rust very quickly and I've never met a bronze hook with any apparent quality.
Bronze hooks may have been nice when OG Oilfield guys were crew-changing by Pterodactyl, but I could rub a bronze-finished hook on my sweaty head and use my all-natural scalp grease to keep corrosion at bay better than bronze.

This is ONLY MY experience (all of it).
Results may vary!

 Now, Black Nickel is where it's at.
Owner hooks tend to be superior to begin with.  Their choice of steel is obviously top shelf, and their processes for obtaining the correct balance of hardness and durability are unbeatable, IMO.
Sharpness of Owners are killer.

I've found Black Nickel to be the ONLY way to go, and unless a BN hook is abused or neglected, they just don't rust.

The other side of the BN/BR coin is that Bronze hooks will degrade in the water much faster than BN hooks, which is actually a plus in terms of safety, with non-human well-being being front and center.
Despite that safety concern, I only accept BN hooks.

BK....have you tried the new Victory hooks? I have some of the 10575 Aberdeen and a few of the 11149 V-Loc hooks in smaller sizes and think they are about the sharpest hooks I have ever handled. And they seem to stay that way. Of those I tried last fall on the big river's backwaters where lots of big rocks abound the lead on the head is about beat off, hook loose, no paint left and those hooks are still sticky sharp. O cannot recall Lil Nastys or the old Matzuos ever keeping a sharp point like that. I also have some Mustad 32833 hooks in black nickel in small sizes and those suckers keep a point too. I have only a few lil nasty hooks left and think when they're gone, I'll just use the Victory's. I'm very happy with the way the stay sharp and rust free. Sharp and rust free.... those two issues are perhaps the two biggest points of contention that other hook makers should maybe focus in in the future even if it drives the hook pricing up a bit. Next in line would be consistency in the leg length from the shank to the eye.

I bought 100 Victory 10777 hooks recently but haven't started messing with them yet.  That particular hook has a ton of potential, but time will tell the tale on its quality.
The 10777 does have it's work cut out for it in proving and establishing its worth with me, though.  As years have gone by I've condensed my hook options down, and the ones that remain have set the bar high.

The fun part will be putting the 10777 through the paces 😁
Even if heartbreak finds me during said, well, that's Fishin'!

  I have a few of the Victory hooks and will say I like them. Haven't really tried them out much because of getting them later in the season. I did fish their drop shot hook last year and that's what got me to buying other styles.
