Buy them from BFW shop.

Never worry about hooks again.
Another vote for "The Hook" by Pallatrax from me. Top quality hooks in barbed or barbless.

And another vote for " The Hook ". Still got a decent supply. . If i do get low, i think i,ll give the " new Gripz " a whirl. Gets around the barbed, barbless arguement. And also has a sealed eye, no gap, like the korum hooks had before they were discontinued. Although i did recently get a good deal on a job lot of Korda Kurv Shanks, but have yet to try them.

I stick with any wide gape style hook from Korda, Pallatrax (the hook or Gripz) Atomic Tackle or G Force. They all seem reliable and pretty much identical. For mono or fluorocarbon I generally use Korda choddy B's. I haven't had problems with any of these hooks. I don't get why there are problems with Korda hooks. Other than maybe because they are the curved shank type hooks which maybe are good for more complicated rigs but maybe more prone to damaged breakage or hook pulls.
