I'm a big fan of the VMC 7250 BLN. I've tried them all except the Trokar and I'll give you my take. The worst one I used was the Gamakatsu 550, I lost a lot of fish as it would really tear large holes in the fish's mouth. If you want to go cutting point hook go with the Owner 5320, it performed well but I wasn't a fan of the price and I did lose more fish than I did when using needle point hooks but it wasn't as bad as the Gamakatsu. The Mustad was a staple for me but the winner was the VMC, it is stout and the hook point stays sharp in rock which is important to me, and I don't lose many fish, when I do it is usually because they are short striking and I'm barley hooking the lip. A long explanation and I apologize but I'm a spinnerbait nut and I figure I'd give you my take on hooks, and before I forget the VMC is a 2X long shank like the Mustad 32608.
