This hook is a variation of the standard (4X) streamer, because it features a straight eye or ringed eye. Some anglers prefer this variation to the popular down-eye model.
The hooks are made of the finest high-carbon steel, which is hardened and tempered to an exacting formula that makes for a long point life and a very strong hook. Daiichi hooks use a 12-degree constant taper ground needle point. This eliminates irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, and gives amazing speed of penetration.
