Mustad®, the world’s best-selling fish hook brand, has introduced the new Ultra Point® KVD Elite Triple Grip® Treble, a replacement treble hook designed by the world’s #1 ranked angler and Mustad pro-staffer, Kevin VanDam.
Design and development was driven by Kevin’s request to create a treble hook that combines the holding features of Triple Grip® trebles with the sharpness and strength of the Elite Series Trebles. “It’s the treble hook design I wish I’d had sooner, because I know it would have made the difference in several tournament finishes,” noted VanDam. “It’s my must-have for improving hook-ups on crank baits and stick baits.”
Ultra Point® Elite Triple Grip® Trebles (Ref No. TG76BLN) feature a special wide bend and power angle point that makes it virtually impossible for fish to throw the hook; a two extra short shank to avoid hook tangling; one extra strong wire for added strength; and a sleek, smooth black nickel finish to enhance penetration. They are available in sizes 3/0 through 6.
Like all Ultra Point® hooks, they feature Mustad’s 4.3 Micro Sharp Point Technology for a sleek, slimmer incredibly sharp point. This unique, two-stage opti-angle point has less metal removed in the sharpening process than with traditional methods, providing all the benefits of a true needle point with incredible strength and durability. Chemically sharpened and Nor-Tempered to be up to 30% stronger than conventional hooks, Ultra Point® is a very sharp, very strong needle point that delivers quick, easy penetrations…and longer performance.
