Extra Sharp Hooks!
That is the promise from Imperial fishing with the introduction of Pinpoint-Hooks from Marc Voosen

right: a hook sharpened with the Pinpoint-Hooks sharpening tools
Hooks from the package feel sharp when tested on the meaty part of the hand (never test hooks on the fingernail)! But if you look at that same hook under a microscope or a magnifying glass you will see that the hook point image when enlarged is actually pretty dull.
You will be amazed how much better a sharpened hook performs!
A hook sharpened using the tools from Pin-Point Hooks simply hooks more aggressively and reliably in the mouth of the fish. Even when you are tying your rigs the hook sticks in the skin with the slightest of contacts. There is a little bit of practice that goes into getting good at sharpening hooks – don’t give up too soon!
