Gamakatsu Nano Alpha Series

Gamakatsu Nano Alpha technology raises the bar in what was previously unattainable in hook manufacturing.

Nano Alpha represents a paradigm shift in hook performance with increased penetration and corrosion resistance. Nano Alpha sets a new standard and stays true to Gamakatsu’s ongoing commitment of “Innovation not Imitation”.

The Nano Alpha Hooks boast an exceptionally smooth surface which increases penetration by two times over standard plated hooks. That allows these hooks to penetrate quicker and farther than standard finishes, delivering higher landing ratios for fish of all species. The Nano Alpha coating technology provides superior corrosion resistance over standard hook plating. This coating not only prolongs the life of the hooks but also ensures they maintain their peak performance in both freshwater and saltwater environments. It prevents rust and corrosion four times better from developing particularly on the points which quickly dulls hooks.

Nano Alpha hooks are now available in a range of the top-selling styles for freshwater and saltwater, including Worm, Superline, Octopus, Octopus Circle, 4X Octopus and Jig hooks.
