Victory hooks
« on: 02/01/21 17:34 UTC »
Just got my new Do-it catalog and I see a new brand of hooks with a very good price on them. Anyone know anything about them?

I want to try a 100 pack, I wonder if someone is making matzuo hooks under a different name. I hope so!

When I was down at HQ last Friday, I saw a pallet labeled "Victory"... since that is the town I live in, I asked Kyle if they were shipping that pallet to my house.  Of course he said 'no', but he then explained that it is a new brand of hooks belonging solely to Do-it.  I don't know if some larger manufacturer already in the hook business is making them for Do-it, or if Do-it found/developed a unique manufacturer to make them for their company. Regardless, I'm expecting good things with these (given the company's track record for quality) and I'm really happy to see a slightly more opened point on their octopus hook.

We are now a proud distributor for their full line-up and are excited to have another really great quality hook option for tackle-crafting at an affordable price.  It's my understanding that Victory's launch into the hook market was led by folks from Mustad and Matzuo and hook innovation that stemmed around angler input.  Victory is a new brand, but was built and founded by a lifetime of hook design and hook manufacturing expertise. I would expect we’ll see several manufacturers and distributors using and distributing these hooks in the coming year. We were lucky enough to offer them first and we are really excited to have these in our hands and be able to offer them to our customers in 2021.

Do the victory 90 degree hooks match the 570 or 575 EC hooks or is it a 630 or Mustad hook.  Will they fir the freestyle, midwest, etc.

There are hook style options for both of them, CC1.

How sharp are they compared to other brands? Consistantly sharp?

We do not have the full inventory in house yet, nor have I spent a whole season fishing them but I'm happy to send out samples if there are hooks any of you would like to look at or try. Send me a DM.

Terry Hansen that worked for Matzuo for many years and Harry Simmons, that did design work for Mustad and made hooks for over 20 years were instrumental in the Victory brand launch and we are confident and excited about their new line-up.
