The Sea Striker Snelled Hook is one of the sturdiest hooks on the market. The process of snelling is where the line/leader is tied below the eyelet reinforcing it. What this does beside creating a firm hold on the hook is that it also prevents spinning and tangling of your line. The Wide Gap configuration makes it easier to grasp the mouth of the fish. The razor sharpness of the hook is the assurance that your catch will not go anywhere once it's hooked.
