i have a copy of the new carpworld which has a pic of the crank hooks and they are nothing like the pics below. basically they are a fairly short shank curved hook quite an aggressive curve but a curved hook none the less. not for me at all but they are nothing like the hooks below

These seem to be a hook that was already made by Partridge hooks many years ago, and the same style as those designed by Frank Warwick, the image and the hooks ive seen all seem quite "normal", just a more arched style hook, as in almost a circle? I wish I knew how to upload the image I have of the Korda Krank - sorry ...

maybe the only reason they called them kranks, is that only cranks will buy them

Looks an interesting pattern. I've used size 6 mixas for bottom baits all season; never lost a fish on them, choddys or wide gapes so will be checking these out

It is a blend of the choddy, curve and wide gape pattern. It has an out turned eye and a curve type wide gape. Good looking pattern.

Are these the pattern Tom Dove was using on Thinking Tackle a couple weeks back?

If so, just a Wide Gape with an offset point? Not at all 'cranked' - unless this is another pattern that Korda are planning to bring out?

So are these Krank hooks anything different to write home about?
Or just another variation of another similar hook

Frank Warwick designed the hook back in the 90's and carp-r-us marketed them but soon withdrew them as a batch was not right and the italians got hold of that batch and was selling them under the carp-r-us banner so thats why the got withdrawn from sale untill they could not find out where they were being made in japan so then there supply dried up

You are showing your age Ken. It was probably nearer 20 years ago than 10. I bought a pack and just could not get my head around using them and so the packet sat in a rig wallet and probably still does.
Another impulse buy, thinking I was going to get the latest edge before any of my mates.

I am pretty sure a small piece was written about them in Carpworld many moons ago.

Could well be the pattern Adam Penning was testing on an episode of thinking tackle a while back. From what i could see it looked quite short in the shank. Offset with an aggressive curve.

Well seeing that you mentioned it , why would I want to go to somewhere like that .
Paying untold to blank your arse off in the hope of catching a lump(Deceased) or waiting for a 70 when there are much better lakes in that area.
Anyway not my type of fishing , I like to bivvy up and use a bait boat , and watch DVD!s instead of the water.

And as for commenting on your favourite company (sic) this is a forum and last time I checked we did have free speech in this country but not so obvious on this forum sometimes.
So chill and let us make our assumptions , or did you not read the part where I said ...we can,t really comment untill we have seen it .

I should be able to share with others the things I do not like , like Parma ham , or very hot curries , or driving a dirty car , or a company called Korda its my choice.
