The Hybrid Longshank X is designed for ultra riggy fish on pressured waters. The long straight point will catch hold in the mouth faster than any other hook. The 20-degree in-turned eye helps it to flip over in the carps mouth and catch hold. The hook is strong for its weight and will suit almost all carping situations. It suits open water situations where sharpness is paramount and where the angler requires a certain finesse in his presentation.
