Designed closely with 4-time Bassmater Angler-of-the-Year, Kevin VanDam, the Mustad KVD Elite Series 1X Triple Grip Hooks deliver the ideal balance of hooking and holding power. The unique shape of the hook is intended to "lock" the fish into the elbow bend, making it harder for the fish to throw the lure. The design also widens the hook gap, and angles the hook points more toward the shank. This provides an optimal angle for maximum impact and penetration, while also making the hook less prone to snags.
An excellent option when added strength is needed on larger baits, and where hook tangling is not an issue, they feature Mustad's 1X strong wire for excellent power and a standard length shank. The standard length shank increases the distance between the hook points and the lure body, raising hook-up percentages. Available in a range of sizes, the Mustad KVD Elite Series 1x Triple Grip Treble Hooks are a great choice for topwater baits.
"The trebles have made all the difference in my ability to win back-to-back Classics and Angler of the Year titles. In the last year alone, I've won more than a million dollars using these hooks. In both Classic victories, I never lost a fish. The hooking and holding ability of this treble design is by far the most advanced I've ever fished," noted Kevin VanDam. " ... there are some topwater and longer stick-bait applications where a lighter wire and longer shank are more desirable."
