Anyone else have expirenced these hooks going to carp?

Been using these sickle hooks for years and here lately the last couple of hundred I've poured the wire is junk

Bending way to easy even in the vise while tying
#2's especially

Just wonder if someone is counterfeiting them. Seems like more and more items are being counterfeited.

I got a bad run of them once. Hooks would break right at the bend. Some right at the head.

I pour Thousands a month, and i get an maybe 1-2 soft hooks out of a 1000 hook box, regardless of Bronze, Black and Red Chrome. You must have gotten a bad batch?

I notice a difference in the last batch I bought...had some that were bent in a round bend, the barbs were smaller, and some broke just using pliers on them.

The #2's are the ones I am having the most trouble with. When I say these things are soft its almost like a twisty. you can just bend it around your finger that easy.


Since Im not really making production runs of these things, I am going to go the route of a different hook with hopefully better results.

Really sucks because I just bought a 1000 of the #2 on sale the other day for 2.00 a pack from Cabela's on clearance.

Now get me some owners so I can start pouring jigs.

In the last two nights, I poured Black Chrome - 1000 #4, 500 #2, 1000 #6, and 1000 #8 jig heads.#4 I had 2 that were soft, #2 I did have 3, and #6 2.
I also poured red Chrome - 750 #4,and 300 #2, no soft hooks.
I was taking note due to this post.

That is about standard. Hooks were purchased in December and last week.

I must have gotten a pretty bad box of 100 then.

Finished off pouring that box, and about to open a few more other ones that were purchased at a later time. So I will keep up with what I find.

Will probably be purchasing a different manufacturer's hook for the future but, these are getting pretty annoying.
