ICAST 2013 Coverage


Getting To The Point With Trokar Hooks

 

Date: 7/14/13
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: Trokar
Reviewer: Wolbugger








Introduction:
Since they first hit the scene, Trokar has touted they offer the sharpest hooks available anywhere. As the world's first surgically sharpened hooks, they have gained a lot of attention from anglers who want the very best in hook penetration and strength. At the ICAST show, several of their latest offerings were on display, and pro bass angler Scott Martin was there to help walk us through these new products.

 

 

 

Elite 110 Hook Kit: The new Elite 110 hook kit joins the Elite, Mini Elite 2, and Mini Elite 3 family of hook kits to round out a nice variety of prepackaged selections. The Elite 110 kit is comprised of 50 black-chrome Trokar 110 series wide-gap hooks: 15 of the TK110 in the 2/0 size, 20 of the TK110 in the 3/0 size, and 15 of the TK110 in the 4/0 size. Like other hook kit families, these come hand-set in marine foam all packaged in a Trokar-labeled transparent white case. MSRP  $79.99 for the kit.

 


Trokar rolled out a number of new hooks specifically designed for saltwater applications

 

New Hook Styles: Several new hook styles are being offered for fresh and saltwater anglers:

 

TK6- Non-offset Kahle Circle hook, light wire, welded eye in sizes 1/0-9/0 MSRP $21.99 per pack

 

TK12- Non-offset saltwater bait hook, welded eye in sizes 1/0-7/0 MSRP $21.99 per pack

 

TK13- Offset saltwater bait hook, welded eye in sizes 1/0-7/0 MSRP $21.99 per pack

 

TK14- Offset saltwater octopus hook, long shank, upturned eye in sizes 1/0-9/0 MSRP $21.99 per pack

 

TK440- Open-eye siwash hook, in sizes 1-7/0 MSRP $17.99 per pack

 


The company will soon offer new hook assortment kits

 


Pro Angler Scott Martin shows us the new Trokar XL pack

 

XL Hook Packs: Aimed to deliver an increased number of hooks as well as an increased value, the Trokar XL hook packs offer several hook styles in packs of 15. These XL hook packs are available with TK100, TK110, TK120, TK130 and carry an MSRP of $15.99 per pack.

 


The massive Trokar XL packs are great for stowing hooks and making them easy to find when you need them

 

Conclusion: Trokar hooks utilize ultra high carbon steel, corrosion resistant plating, 3 sided cutting points, and a low profile barb.  With species and technique-specific designs, these American-made hooks are designed for optimal performance for their given applications. Though they are quite costly as far as hooks go, they are worth a look if you are seeking out the sharpest around!
