This hook is well suited to use with an Albie Snax, it works well because of the wide gap which gives the bait room to move when taken by a fish. I caught and returned a nice 40cm Bass last night. The Twist still held and needed no adjustment. Before buying these I checked out the websites of VMC, Owner and Gamakatsu. VMC have a printable scale drawing of their hooks which is very good for size selection. There is also a online video showing the factory where the hooks are properly forged. I have also bought the weighted version. These are very well made strong hooks.
