Are your customers tired of loosing fish? We’re sure you hear the stories every day of the Giant that got away… our industry is full of those. Being bass fisherman ourselves, we have lived through those stories and know firsthand not all of them are lies.
After losing numerous big fish during tournaments, Spearpoint Hooks owners Art Nubaryan and Erik Hennesay were flat out tired of it. They set out to develop a hook that would change those lost fish stories, into success stories.
According to Nubaryan and Hennesay, the genesis of the company came from one of the most frustrating experiences in an angler’s life – lost fish. “We started talking about it and figured we could come up with something that fixed the problem, Spearpoint Performance Hooks was born,” said Nubaryan. “The vision we have for our hooks is more than a business to us, it’s a lifestyle. We wanted to make a product that Anglers could trust and help them land more fish.”
The Initial Lineup
Spearpoint’s Wide Gap and GP Finesse hooks are designed to impart maximum torque and fish holding power. Both shapes feature Spearpoint’s pat. pend VGrip™ technology that helps keep fish securely fastened once the hook is set. As a result, Hennesay said that the VGrip™ works overtime for the angler. “I will tell you this, always have pliers with you; they are hard to get out by hand,” he said. “There are many times that the hook penetrates the fish’s mouth and turns and penetrates a second time. We call it a ‘stapling effect,’ because it looks like the fish’s mouth has been stapled from the outside, they really hook and hold.”
The Wide Gap
The Wide Gap model features a line tie positioned in line with the hook’s needle point to produce maximum power as the point meets the fish’s mouth at hookset. Along with VGrip™ in the bend of the hook, the Spearpoint Wide Gap features a baitholder barb near the eye of the hook to help keep soft baits in place during presentations. The Wide Gap version will be available in sizes 2/0 to 5/0, will come six to a pack and will retail for $5.39.
The GP Finesse
The GP Finesse hook is uniquely designed to be the most effective finesse hook on the market. Engineered to put the eye of the hook in line with the VGrip™ for maximum torque. The GP Finesse hook helps perfectly present finesse soft plastics in Wacky Rig, Drop Shot or Neko Rig presentations, and the premium needle point will deliver the goods every time. The GP Finesse hook will be available in sizes 3 through 2/0, will also come in packs of six, and will retail for $5.19.
The GP Finesse will be entered into the New Product Showcase at ICAST 2020.
