Mustad Ultra Point Grip-Pin Max

Mustad®, the world’s largest-selling fish hook brand, introduces the new Ultra Point® Grip-Pin Max, a hook developed and designed by US Elite angler Denny Brauer for fishing plastics in heavy cover.

The Grip-Pin Max is a straight-shank, wide-bite hook with a sleek, integrated keeper on the upper shank to keep baits perfectly positioned without hanging in the grass.

This versatile ‘no slip/no slide’ design securely anchors baits without tearing or slipping and is perfect for Texas Rigging a wide range of soft plastic baits, such as creature baits, stick baits, tubes and worms. The hook eye is completely sealed for 100% confidence when fishing braid lines, especially when snelling.

“I’m genuinely proud of this innovation. Its got a shorter shank, super sharp point and the strength is unmatched,” said Brauer. “In testing, the percentage of hook-ups went through the roof and hook penetration was clean and precise. You just don’t miss fish and with that point angled in slightly, you don’t lose fish even in the heaviest of cover.”
