Wuxi Greenwave Slik-Set

Wuxi Greenwave has been manufacturing fish hooks since 1937 and understand that there is not only the need for the right type of steel, a correctly ground point, and just the right amount of tempering to suit the wire gauge and shape, but also that the finish needs to complement and enhance the performance of the hook.

We are proud to introduce to the market our new Slik-Set finish that is available on our range of sport fishing hooks.

The finish is a proprietary chemical formulation which is electro-chemically plated to the hook’s surface. The super slick finish has increased lubricity over other coatings that gives improved penetration and hook sets. In short, less force is needed to set the hook with this finish, leading to less lost fish due to poor hook holds.

In addition to the improved hook sets, the coating reduces the anodic activity between the hook and the water. Many anglers believe the minute electric charges surrounding a hook can be detected by the fish and Slik-Set inhibits this electrical activity.

The dull, non-flash finish adds to the discreet properties of the hook and offers enhanced corrosion resistance compared to other coatings.
