RE: Latest Mustad Jig Hooks
5 years later obsessed with wipers took a chance on 32786 1/0 this year concerned about short strikes due to the short shank and failure to mouth due to the wide gap and that hook is now my fave in a 1/4 head.  Even 6" smallies and crappie manage to engulf with a 3" soft bait.

Heavy wire and pronounced barb require more hookset force but once hooked VERY few wipers of any size drop off.  Used to like 1/0 & 2/0 lite wire hooks which allowed propellers and plastic beads to be installed onto the shanks to hold 3" plastics but as the wipers got bigger so did occasional bendouts.  Full metal collars now work just fine and bendouts are history.

In fact, increased holding power caused the mainshaft of my Pflueger Arbor 7430 to cant to a side.  Now upsized to a 7440.

My old ,now late, fishing buddy often had trouble stingin' largemouth bass on the hookset. Then he located the shortest shank jighook I ever saw. Soon thereafter he stung almost everything that engulfed his slider worms & light jighead. His proven theory was "short shank jighead is the last thing blown in, but the first thing , and FASTEST, coming out during the set!"
