They are definitely strong, AND SHARP!!! After having numerous bent hooks come back on my jerk baits during a recent striped bass outing, I removed the factory treble hooks on my believe it or not, high end lures. I won't name them, but they start at $18. I replaced all of the trebles with the Gamakatsu 4x strong, size 4 hooks. Next outing, didn't have a problem with hook failure anymore, but... did end up in the ER as a result of putting a hook into my index finger while trying to remove the lure from a striper. They work, they are strong, and they are SHARP! Be certain to have a quality pair of pliers handy and a quality fish grip tool too. Following my visit to the ER, we returned to the water, as cautious as could be. An hour back onto the water, my buddy put a hook into the side of his hand. We couldn't dare show our faces at the hospital again, so he opted to remove it himself. Did I say they are sharp?
Pros: Sharp, Strong
