Wide Gape Talon Tip Hooks - Gardner Tackle
The finely-tuned extended gape of the hook increases the hooking power even more, making it deadly in the modern rigs of today.
Taking this already successful pattern to a new level.
Whilst still incorporating the in-turned beaked point to aid hooking and help prevent blunting of the point in gravelly swims, the Wide Gape Talon Tip also features the 5 degree in-turned eye to help pull the hook home securely and keep it safely in position during the fight.
By removing the offset of the original pattern we have improved the hook’s ability to ‘prick’ the instant the hook bait is taken, and it is such a versatile pattern it works with a massive range of rigs.
The main advantage of a beaked point is that when the point first takes hold and starts grips it helps keep the hook in position effectively even if the fish is trying to shake the rig free (useful if you’re angling on a barbless rules venue) and just pulls in more and grips tighter. Another benefit is that the point is less likely to be turned over or damaged when you fishing over gravel or other rough types of lake bed – typically big stones...
Constructed from the same ‘bomb proof’ ultra-strong forged wire of the original so you can be certain that the strength is unparalleled across the size ranges ensuring this hook can confidently be used in the most extreme fishing situations for catching the biggest carp that swim...anywhere.
- This is the No.1 hook to use for fishing near snags or in weed.
- Available in Sizes 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 in Barbed.
- 10 hooks per pack.
"I've been genuinely impressed with the Wide Gape Talon Tip, during the field testing that I've done. The T-Tip always was a tough hook for testing conditions, but now, with the extended gape, this pattern is ruthless - carp just don't seem to be able to swim away from them!"
