Mustad Replacement Hook Kits 

What sets it apart?

Big on expediency, Mustad’s new kits offer a convenient quick and ready organizing solution packed with Mustad components, neatly organized in a foam-lined waterproof plastic box that measures 5.9 by 3.6 by 1.75 inches when closed. Technique oriented kits (bass, walleye, inshore saltwater and pike) include best-selling Mustad UltraPoint Hooks, Split Rings, and Fastach Replacement Clips (all matched to size) and a pair of Mustad Stainless Steel Braid Cutter/Split Ring Pliers.

How do I use it?

Included are Mustad’s game changing KVD Elite Triple Grip Treble hooks, which feature Mustad’s 4.3 Micro Sharp Point Technology. Mustad’s three-stage opti-angle sharpening process provides for a sharp point with incredible strength and durability which means hook points don’t roll, and sharp hooks stay sharper longer. Mustad’s custom steel alloy wire is Non-Tempered for up to 30 percent more strength than standard wire hooks. Each kit finds the hooks and split ring pliers nested in custom foam slots, with the Fastach Clips and Split Rings held separately in a fixed 6-compartment box.

Angler’s insight:

Experienced anglers know that even the best-made baits often benefit from a prudent tackle tweak. Maybe it’s a hook size up or down to make a bait suspend or to create a different sink rate. Maybe you need more “bite” or gripping ability when fish are just swiping at the bait. Add a feather? Change a color (hook or feather)? Usually these needs occur on the water and they’re usually needed in short order, so keeping a kit with the necessary tackle and tool handy will save time spent digging for multiple pieces.
