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.

Available in size 6, 8 & 10 and Catfish 1, 1/0 & 2/0.

Pre-orders are available for Wide Gape sizes: 2, 4, 12, 14 & 16.

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 are offered in sizes 6, 8 and 10 in the same Wide Gape style as Pallatrax’s successful and existing hook pattern, “The Hook”.

Gripz Wide Gape Hooks will soon be available in Sizes 2, 4, 12, 14 and 16, in addition to 6, 8 and 10 already available.
We are accepting pre-orders for these sizes!

Gripz Catfish Hooks now available in Size 1, 1/0 and 2/0.

    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

    Due to weather conditions I have not used them yet, but, I bought them because they look the part and will I am sure catch me a few Barbel.
