After extensive research, where the limitations of both barbed and barbless were scrutinised, there has been an obvious need for improvement thus resulting in this radical design that crosses the boundaries between what we have had and what we now have.

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.

None of us can deny that this is a serious and genuine development within the hook sector and one that is set to transform the sport and truly add benefits for both anglers, fish and fisheries.

The distinct advantages of GRIPZ Hooks are easy to appreciate when you consider hook slippage, fish loss via barbless patterns, hook removal damage and trailing rigs through barbed patterns.

The Curve Shank pattern comes in sizes; 4’s, 6’s and 8, which are predominately aimed at the Carp market.

    Gripz Curve shank, added to an already awesome range of hooks. They are razor sharp straight out of packet and remain so. The curve gives you the opportunity to tie several different type of rigs from just this one pattern. Their versatility enables you to use them for bottom baits, pop ups and wafters. Where possible, Gripz are the only hook I use. Confidence in knowing that they are as fish friendly as you could possibly get from a hook, also i am yet to lose a fish since using them.

    Classic curve shank design with unique Gripz grooves and razor sharp point. As close to perfect as a hook can get!

    Been using Pallatrax products for a while now, especially their Wide Gap Hooks, looking forward to using the Curve Shank. Fellow carp anglers I know have had huge results from the curve Shank.
