    I am currently thinking of switching to a different brand of hooks. I am currently using Gamakatsu and am satisfied but thinking may be it's time for change. If there is anything you have is a better product please let me know.

    I use owners only. Gorillas or circles. They're sharper than Gama's or other circles. I think they are a bit thicker as well. Gorillas with a slider sinker set up for YT or WSB. Circles with a 3 way swivel and a trap rig for Halibut. Bounce balling. Hook sets itself.

    I like hayabusa hooks. Simply because they have worked for me in the past.

    YUP. I've seen more fish lost with Owner Flyliners than I've seen landed. That tiny little barb doesn't hold worth a shit. The Gorilla's seem way too big for their size, talk about slowing your bait down when flylining, and tuna fishing is all about bait presentation. There's a reason landing/boats have been using Mustad bronze hooks for decades...they work very well, and are very affordable. Gamakatsu for freshwater type stuff.

    You hit the nail on the head. The barbs on the Owner Flyliners are way too small. After popping of more than a half a dozen quality local Yellowtail and Yellowfin last year, I made the switch to Gamakatsu and I haven't lost a fish so far once it's been hooked.

    Still looking around for the right hook for me. It's definitely not Owners.

    Did the same as MCRAE did. Heck I did not realize the assortment I had. Depends on what you are fishing for is what you use. Just bring them in the boat!

    Shout Kudoku are the best I've found period. Not a stronger hook out there IMHO and the point and barb are beyond. Fan of owners too but not compared to a shout hook.
