These somewhat strange shaped hooks have been hooking everything from Galjoen to Bronze Whalers up in Namibia for the past 6 years, and with great success. They are now available RSA for the first time through Pro Bait.
Manufactured in Europe, their success is owed in part to their shape, but more due to their strength and the sharpness of the point of the hook. Once hooked, the fish does not have the chance to roll you off as with normal “J” shaped hooks. The shape of the hook ensures that the fish is held safely in the unique bend of the hook. Katanas are renowned for their sharpness and brute strength. Shark anglers have found that setting the hook no longer requires 3 or 4 dramatic strikes; just a single strike will suffice to set the hook firm, which is a result of the incredible sharpness and the micro barb. These absolute power hooks are made from high carbon “Sheffield” steel with a forged shank and point which ensures that you are purchasing a top quality product that will not disappoint you. Katanas are black nickel plated which protects the hook from the elements. Katana Precision Hooks are truly engineered for perfection.
These hooks will be available at selected retail outlets throughout RSA, with a size range from size 6 up to 10/0, and they are not just finding success with surf anglers, but also Tigerfish aficionados using live baits.Share on Facebook
