Sticky, but questionable strength
I decided to try these hooks in size 12. They are ultra sharp and with the light wire it takes very little force to get a proper hookset. However, even when fighting medium sized fish (14" - 17") these hooks started to straighten out on me and I had to reform the curve/bend with my pliers after each fish. That said, I'm reluctant to continue using them in fear that they will straighten out on larger fish. Back to thicker wire hooks for me.
