Made from high grade Japanese wire, the key improvement has been the introduction of a series of minute horizontal grooves on the inside of the specially designed arrow shaped hook point, where historically the barb would have been. These grooves allow the hook to hold securely in the fish’s mouth when pressure is applied, as the flesh presses into the grooves resulting in a firm hook hold with no slippage.
As soon as the pressure is removed the hook returns to a barbless format allowing for easy and safe removal. Simple but so very effective.

There’s Barbed. There’s Barbless. And now there’s GRIPZ. A totally new hook design with grooves which hold tight like a barb and, when pressure is released, will simply slip out of the fish’s mouth like a barbless hook.
