Owner’s new Cutting Point series hooks offers one the best types of worm hooks I have ever used. They stay sharp and offer a differently designed tip that seems to penetrate much better than standard hooks. The Offset Worm Hook features a 90 degree worm holding shoulder at the top which helps keep the worm rigged up properly when you are casting it or dragging it through weeds. The offset design of the hook makes rigging plastic worms very easy. I used to switch between different brands of hooks trying to find ones that would stay sharp and not get worn too quickly, however now when rigging soft plastics I almost exclusively use an Owner Offset Worm Hook.
For sizes 3/0, 4/0, or 5/0, the offset worm hooks cost $5.25 and include 5 hooks in a pack.
For sizes #2, #1, 1/0, and 2/0, the offset worm hooks cost $5.25 and include 6 hooks in a pack.
Here are some price comparisons for standard hooks
Owner Offset Worm Hook – 3/0 – 5 pack $5.25 per pack $1.05 per hook
Gamakatsu Offset Worm Hook – 3/0 – 5 pack $3.49 per pack $.70 per hook
BassProShops Offset Worm Hook – 3/0 – 5 pack $1.99 per pack $.40 per hook
A closer look at the Cutting Point® tip and Black Chrome finish
- Cutting Point tip; comes sharp, stays sharp
- Offset design that helps hold the worm
- Strong build, hook will not bend easily
- Price; it will add up quickly if you are prone to losing hooks
- Do not offer a blood red hook color
Overall, I highly recommend trying out these hooks at some point, even though your wallet will take a small hit. They quality and design definitely make them worth it.
