Owner Zo-wire trebles

Postby queylotrie » Sat Oct 27, 2018 1:50 am

Anyone have any info on these trebles? Mainly looking for comparison of diameter with other hooks (St-36/41, KVD elites).Thinking of using the size 6 on jerkbaits.The redfish and trout down here bend some trebles in a hurry. :D
Thanks

Sounds like a good idea to me. I know the flipping and cover shot hooks are the real deal.
As a matter of fact I don't have enough rods.

They are heavy. Good hooks, but heavy. I used them on some topwaters, but they felt heavy enough I never tried them on jerkbaits (all freshwater here). That doesn't necessarily sink a jerkbait though, just have to experiment. I never physically weighed them, but from what I remember they are stout and heavy, just a bit thicker though. Also I had some of the ZO-wire flipping hooks and they rusted bad. Might have been my fault, but I specifically remember how bad those rusted...

I was just going to post a question about these hooks and saw this post. Seems not many have tried these hooks. I tried the STX-58 trebles when they first came out a few years ago, and really liked them on my saltwater jerkbaits. Very little corrosion/rust after extended use, never bent, and stayed sharp. The one issue I had was with the sizes. I ordered size 6, and they were the same size as the size 4 ST-36 hooks, diameter and all. Was wondering about sizing on the new versions, but I guess I’ll have to just order and see.

I should have been further in explaining why my Zo-wire flipping hooks rusted. I left them in my "overflow" box full of baits from changing lures and things I carry for quick trips (lots of mixed salty plastics with hook and water), then I also really sharpened a few of them after burying the hooks into some snags. So I 100% attribute the hooks' rusting to my fault now.

I figured something like this must be the case. I used the same 4/0 Jungle hook all summer long on 20# fluoro in heavy cover and vegetation with a D-Bomb and an ounce of tungsten and after dozens of fish it's still like new.

I got few boxes and they are sharp and strong. Don't use them on jerkbairts Makes them sink fast.
