What is it?

VMC SureSet Drop Shot Hook

What sets it apart?

Who said that choosing finesse presentations implies sacrificing solidity? Not VMC, makers of the 7356 SureSet Drop Shot Hook. Ideal for nose-hooking everything from slender hand-poured worms to modest minnow forms, this hook features a technical locking curve design, which guarantees a fast and easy penetration by directing all the energy toward the point while keeping the fish secure during the fight.

How do I use it?

The 7356 SureSet Drop Shot Hook is forged from tough, lightweight Vanadium Steel that offers as much as 25 percent more strength than the material used in regular hooks. Available in a black nickel finish, this 1X strong hook is made with extra bend resistance to maintain its shape, even under the strain of a big fish. Designed with a turned-up eye, this hook’s needle point sharpness helps convert more bites into catches. Sizes 6, 4, 2 and 1 come 16 per pack while 1/0, 2/0 and 3/0 come 12 per pack.

How much?

Angler’s insight:

Penetration and holding power, those are two biggies by which hooks are judged and VMC has addressed both points with is 7356 SureSet Drop Shot hook. That technical locking curve feature was a well-conceived design element; one that will, no doubt, prevent untold frustrations on the water. I mean, how often does that light spinning rod load up with a real drag-puller, only to fall limp when that big fish steals its freedom? Starts with a solid sticking, ends with an unyielding grip.
