I have now fished these a lot in nymphs size 16 and 14. So, lots of ticking bottom and also lots of hooking fish. The point sharpness and retention is possibly the best of any hooks I ever used. Fish holding seems good and I have yet to see a bend starting to open.
At least as good sharpness and strength as similar Orient Sun hooks I have, and that is very good. My impression of hooking and holding ability is that it is also very good. A little more expensive than Orient Sun but you get 5 more per pack. Now my preferred hook for certain nymph patterns.
