Mustad®, the global leader in fish hooks since 1877, has expanded the tournament and award winning Grip-in Series with the New UltraPoint Grip-Pin Big Bite 2X.
Superior hold, tremendous durability, and minimum profile for easy rigging without damaging baits are all trademarks of Mustad’s Grip-Pin Series. Designed with detailed input by Mustad Pros, the Grip-Pin Big Bite 2X is a very special new hook that features a distinctive shape with a special narrow offset shank an open gap, 2X long frame, and wide round bend.
The result is a hook that is easy to rig for a perfect presentation, wide gap with a hooking potential rivaling that of a straight shank worm hook, and the strength to handle the pressures developed by today’s tackle. The design itself is ideal for fishing in thick weeds, brush, and other structure where you might not choose an extra wide gap hook. Available in a full size range from 1/0 to 7/0, the New Big Bite is an excellent platform for rigging anything from big baits down to finesse worms.
Mustad’s Grip-Pin™ technology features the hook industry’s only solid metal oversized keeper barb, and all Grip-Pin™ hooks also feature fully sealed eyes, so braided lines stay securely fastened. Solid metal construction means that Grip-Pin keepers have a minimal profile for more natural rigging of soft plastic baits without tearing, and the durability to stay in place fish after fish.
“Successful fishing is about presentation and performance, and this hook is built just perfect for Texas Rigs, Weightless Texas Rigs, and Carolina Rigs,” says Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Brandon Lester. “It was special being involved in designing the 2X Big Bite; I know it will make a big difference in my fishing!”
Like all Mustad® UltraPoint® hooks, Grip-Pin Big Bite 2X ™ hooks feature Mustad’s 4.3 Micro Point Technology a unique, three-stage Opti-angle process that means sharp hooks stay sharper longer. Mustad’s custom steel alloy wire is Nor-Tempered for up to 30% more strength than standard wire hooks, and more confidence when battling a fish of a lifetime.
