Enquiries: Treble Hooks for GT Popping

Got few enquiry on what / which trebles i used for GT popping.....will answer soon...

Currently i am using 4 brands i.e. Katsuichi Decoy, Gamakatsu GT Recorder, Vanfook Blue Takumi treble hook and Cultiva Owner.

During old days the only hooks that made available to me is only Cultiva Owner which landed me a lot of fish.
Nowdays rarely i use Cultiva Owner for big game popping.

From my experience, Katsuichi Decoy, Gamakatsu GT Recorder, Vanfook Blue Takumi hook points and gap protects my lures much batter. I mean less hook mark on those "hard-to-get" lures.

Arguments on which brand of treble hooks is the best for GT popping, i will leave it open.

Katsuichi Decoy GT Special and Saltwater Big

Gamakatsu GT Recorder

Vanfook Blue Takumi


Cultiva Owner ST-66 and ST-76
As we aware some lure company did provide list of preferably hook type and size to be used on  their lures. Lures such as stick bait is more 'hook-sensitive" than popper.
Below is just examples, please refer to the appropriate official website for detail list.
