Does a 60 degree jig hook exist in the 4/0 to 6/0 range that will NOT bend??? I make these multi bait rigs for hybrids and stripers.If you get more than one on at a time and they pull against each other, you get a bent hook. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

I have been using Mustads just in a larger diameter wire. Still need something stronger if I can find it..

If you're already using 34184 and/or 32786 thats about it, except maybe the 34185 might resist bend out a shade better due to its shorter shank.

The 90* Owner 5319 is rated 3x but your most practical solution might be single hook.

Forgot, if you're willing to pay the price, the Gami 2034 is the strongest 60* jig hook available, but only in 4/0 size. Besides massive wire gauge and premium metal temper, the EWG bend should also resist bendout.

Hawn I have been thinking about those..I have some actually that I use to make custom bass jigs for a guy. You can not beat the strength that's for sure...I just wish they was a hair longer. I may end up going to those though...for the strength...
