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.

Initially our unbelievably sharp GRIPZ hooks were offered in sizes 6, 8 and 10 in the same Wide Gape style as Pallatrax’s successful and existing hook pattern, “The Hook”. We now offer the Wide Gape GRIPZ Hooks in sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 & 16 (10 hookes per pack). Straight Point GRIPZ Hooks in sizes 2, 4, 6, 8 & 10 (10 hooks per pack). And Eagle Wave Catfish/Predator GRIPZ Hooks in sizes 1, 1/0 & 2/0 (5 hooks per pack).

GRIPZ Trebles should be available by the end of the month!

    One of my waters has a barbless only rule, and since using the Gripz I’ve not had a hook pull yet, including fish that have taken me into weedbeds. I’m more confident when I’m using these over normal barbless.

    With more and more waters introducing barbless hook rules I was looking for something new as I had dropped a few fish from hook pulls. These appear to do the job and I have not lost one fish since using these, to a hook pull. Highly recommended.

    I have used these hooks for 4 years now and won’t use any other now when fishing for Barbel, Chub and Carp. They are super sharp and strong, excellent hooks.

    I bought these hooks after using the free ones i was given. I’ve used these hooks on two trips so far and they are sharp and strong, and the hook holds they produce are spot on. and you would not believe they are barbless.

    To be honest, I wouldn’t use any other hook, just what you need in the armoury

    Great hooks… sharp and not too heavy in the wire and plenty of size options, mean they’re a hook for all species not just carp.

    As sharp as the other hooks on the market, but far far stronger. I am totally sold on the gripz now.

    Can’t fault the Gripz in any way extremely Sharp, act like a barbed hook without being barbed, you have the best of both worlds, what more could you want ?

    As I only fish barb less I only use pallatrax, safe in the knowledge if I hook a fish I’ve a great chance of getting it on the bank… Trevor (Belfast)

    Great hooks, I have never used barbed hooks as I am very against them (may get a few remaks for that), watching a friend land more fish using his barbed hooks but as I see it doing more damage to the fish this brings me on a level keel with him without causing damage to the fish. Very sharp, I like the wide gape size ten hooks, these are for me from now on.

    Not a barbless, not barbed… Work like both! All the time your playing the fish the ridges work like a barb, on the bank when unhooking they work like a barbless and slip right out. Best of both worlds and always sharp!

    I have been using the wide gape in sizes 8 and 10 for barbel fishing for the past year. They are amazing hooks. Exceptionally strong and I hardly ever have hook pulls. Also easy to remove on the bank, just like barbless. I won’t use anything else!

    I think these hooks are fantastic but as I’ve not used the yet as my next fishing trip is booked for April I can’t give a full on review. But the whole concept of the idea is awesome I’m so excited to try them
