Gamakatsu Octopus Circle Outbarb Hook 4 – 0 - Review
The Gamakatsu Octopus Circle Outbarb Hook is a circle style 1X strong hook. Unlike traditional hooks where the barb is placed on the side of the hook bend, this hook features an outbarb design. This is beneficial for certain fishing techniques like jigging, chunk baiting, and bottom fishing, where if your line goes slack, it can get entangled by the hook barb, potentially causing damage. The outbarb design eliminates this risk, making it safer to use. Tests have shown that when combined with Gamakatsu's circle hook design, the outbarb provides better penetration and a higher hook retention rate. This hook also has an offset point and is forged for superior strength.
