Takamitechnos Ropera Jigging Hook
Takamitechnos is a small rod builder in Osaka. The headman Takami is a very skilled angler.
- medium shank
- curved point
Available in size 1/0 and 2/0 ... Size 1/0 is about Decoy Pike 1/0. Size 2/0 is about Decoy Pike 2/0. The shank is pretty long and the gap is wide, so that the bent curve is a little steep. But this hook is medium wire. Size 2/0 is as strong as 3/0 size Pike. Created by the steep bent is all the space for holding the fish. I think this hook holds the fish very very well. He designed the point angle differently in 2 models. Size 1/0 is small in volume so that it’s less likely to be swallowed into fish mouth, he thought. So he opened the point angle a little to catch better. Then anglers need to hook actively. Size 2/0 is bigger in volume and easier to be swallowed, and of course meant to be used on a heavier jig, so he closed the point angle to the eye for better penetration. This guy really planned to design this hook. But there’s more.
- Size 1/0 ... 6pcs per pack
- Size 2/0 ... 5pcs per pack
What makes this hook even more unique is the point design. ... review by Japanese Anglers Secrets
