Please take the poll.

Would you be willing to pay 15 cents more per lure for red hooks???

This is part of the corrosion issue that bronze hooks experience on Texoma.

I'm switching over to SeaGuard Eagle Claw hooks for all jig heads (as the bronze hook inventory is depleted).

I've been asked to supply red hooks but there is a cost differential that I can't "eat".

15 cents is not enough to make a difference.  Whichever is the best ( sharpest, strongest, prettiest, whatever). I'm not convinced at 20 feet down a red or nickel or black hook or whatever makes any difference.  I know I've put red hooks on most of my topwaters. Don't know if its improved hook ups any but they are pretty.

Yeah I'd pay more for corrosion resistance...
I have a few Red Hooks that are Gold Aberdeen underneath....
They don't rust, seem to stay sharp, but the Red wears off pretty quick....
Not sure I have an opinion either way on the effectivness but like Hoss the Red ones look cool...

The red hooks are definitely good lookin' in a bag going out the door.  If I was a fish, I'd bite 'em....

I shoulda used some today.  [frown]

From the poll it looks like most folks would pay extra for the red hook.

I'll order some 4/0 and 5/0 sizes and offer them as optional on the web site.
