I made the switch from Drennan SS over to Kamasan Barbel Maxx a few years back and have been very happy, never having one fail and I fish some extremely rocky areas of the tidal Trent.

For the wye, definitely drennan continental, beaked point stops the rocks blunting the point, second choice for me are, pallatrax, the hook. Both super strong hooks

I tried the Korum Xperts but found the points turn over fairly easily so I tried the Drennan Specialist Barbel but had one straighten so they went in the bin.

Now I use Gardner Target Specimen barbless and find them bomb proof in fact I am using the same hook I started the season with! They do have a shallow angle (5 deg.) down turned the eye though (which I don't mind).

I use a size 10 and have had barbel to 16.04 on them.

They are not cheap but for such a vital piece of terminal tackle I am happy spending a little more, shopping around on ebay brings the price down though.

Just got some nash fang uni hooks in size 8 as i was looking for a similar hook to the fox arma point hooks I was using before. They are very sharp with a beaked point and straight eye. I still use esp raptor t6 hooks and i use them mostly for meat rigs now in size 6 (nice wide gape)

Thanks for that Jon,they look like an ideal barbel hook,wide gape,beaked point,short shank and micro barbed.Just ordered 10 in a size 10 for a bargain 1.89 delivered.If I don't get on with them I haven't lost much.

I wonder if they're made in the same Japanese factory as some of the much more expensive branded hooks?

So many out there, but I've settled on cryogen grippers, Good shout from Jon Frisby that I will try at that price.

Have used the Drennan specimen plus hooks for mullet fishing over 20+years and they produce more hook ups than any other make/type of hook that i ever dabbled with.A very good strong hook at a good price!
