Anybody try these things yet? Any thoughts on them? Gimmick or revolutionary product?

They don't look right.

The physics side of them seems to make sense. Will let you know soon.

Looks like they would have a hard time coming out of a beaver style bait....like the box would keep the hook point from popping out of the bait. On the other hand, it looks like it would be great for keeping the hook pegged in the bait. Will I try them...of course!

I've found that I get the best hook ups on a 4/0 Gamakatsu round bend using a beaver and I've tried them all except this one.

Straight shank has best hookup ratio hands down. If it ain't broke...
