River A Tackle squarebills now feature OWNER ST-35 short shanks....similar to the ST-36 series but with a short shank and wider gaps. Shorter shanks allow larger gapped hooks to be used without the fear of trebles fouling on each other and by nature of the design, short shanks flex less. This treble also features 150° PPP (Premium Point Position � see illustration) that splits 2 hook points out 150° vs. the typical 120° between all 3 points. Opening this gap allows the hook points to be positioned slightly farther out from the hardbait body, making for hookups that otherwise might not happen. Opening the gap to 150° also allows hooks to do less damage to baits and keep point sharper over time. This treble includes Owner's Silky Gray frictionless finish that encourage superior hook penetration through gill plates and the toughest parts of the mouth. Other features include round bends, and Super Needle Points. When rigging baits always rig the front treble with the point in line with the eye, facing forward, and the rear in line point facing rear.
