BKK Raptor-X Treble Hook – #1 – 7 Pack - Review
The BKK Raptor-X Treble Hooks are designed to deliver excellent performance in situations where extreme strength is not required. These trebles are inspired by the strength and versatility of the Raptor-Z hooks, but offer a lighter wire construction and Hand Ground point processing technology for improved penetration and hookup rate.
The hook gap and shank sizing of the Raptor-X hooks are optimized to provide maximum holding power, while the hook point is slightly straightened to increase hookup percentages. The thinner wire diameter of these hooks makes them more suitable for smaller lures without compromising their swimming action.
BKK has given the Raptor-X hooks a bright tin coating that enhances the corrosion resistance, making them ideal for saltwater environments. These hooks can be used for various inshore and light offshore applications, such as catching striped bass, yellowtail, and small tuna. They are also suitable for freshwater use, including pike, musky, and trophy largemouth bass lures.
