I like the heaviness and strength of this stout hook. However, I like to touch-up the point with a small file or stone just to get a little better point. The point is not bad. I just like a point that catches on a finger nail test.
Stay sharp and do not bend easily great hooks for the money. This hook has been excellent for winter steelhead, have not used on spring steelhead yet. I'm sure they will do fine on spring fish too. Hard to beat the perfomance for the price.
