I like VMC round bend short shanks on most of my larger crankbaits, though I do have Mustad triple grips on my slimmer profile baits. The factory ones are nice, the short-shank triple grips you get a wider hook bend for the same length treble as the factory ones though, so I tend to change out to those as they dull.
I keep a hook file handy and check them regularly as well though.
As much as I love the matzuo j-sickle offset hooks I haven't been tempted enough to change over to sickle trebles yet, not sure they will work out as well... may give them a go soon though just to see
