The Extra Wide Gap Plus hooks, from Owner America, are uniquely different than other wide gap hooks. Start with the exclusive Owner Cutting Point; it actually decreases resistance as the hook penetrates because the sharp edges of the point cut rather than act like a wedge that increases resistance as it goes in deeper. These hooks have the beautiful black chrome finish that will virtually eliminate corrosion and heavy wire that will not straighten out under load. The offset is very deep, sharper than 90 degrees, and called the Z-Bend by Owner, which helps the plastic bait stay in place when you drag it through rough cover. Another key difference is the fact that the point is on the same plane as the eye, which means 100% of the force you put into the hookset goes into the point for maximum penetration. Owner does this without sacrificing the deep bend for a true extra wide gap hook.
