Ultra premium 2X Strong, 90° jig hook with special VMC BARBARIAN bend, black nickel finish. The unique design of the technical locking curve allows a maximum transfer of energy towards the point while setting the hook. This results in a faster and more effortless penetration of the point and up to 25% improved hooking rate. The hook’s V shape locks the fish close to the shank, applying less pressure on the point. This prevents big fish from opening the hook and self-releasing. Tests have proven that the unique geometry of the VMC Barbarian shape increases a hook’s resistance to opening.
