These high quality hooks are made by FUDO in Japan, but have been modified in house. The eye has been deburred and polished for use with mono. They feature a special round tip design and a thicker shank (same as QR 11/0) for more holding power. Reduce your odds of pulling hooks on soft swordfish with these Fudo Grander hooks. A squid rigging tutorial is in the photo section. It’s recommended to fish 8#’s or more weight with heavy shank hooks.
