I use them all the time now, club is barbless rule so use these, never had a problem with them nice and sharp, I tend to use smaller size and light leads for my carp fishing and as good as any other barbless hook. Do the Grip hmm I very much doubt it, but the sharp and sharpness suits my type of fishing.

I use their" the hook" for MY Barbel fishing as its a beak point and doesn't blunt as easy as a straight point on gravel

result for me is I get on with them with any problems.

I've had another bash with them recently. i ordered the gripz straight point. as you say, they are nice and sharp but i've lost a few fish on them. i don't think they are much different to barbless myself. If you fish a lake with a barbless only rule, i would use them over barbless hooks.

Just to "bounce" this, I ordered some 4's and 6's and they arrived yesterday.
1st impressions are very good, very sharp straight out of the pkt and sizes are good, (not too big).
Despite my lake allowing barbed, I'm going to tie a few rigs up this week and give them a bash.
Size 4's for my bottom baits, the 6's look perfect for pop up rigs.
Looking at the Pallatrax website, I might even order some of their "squab" baits. Might just give me an edge with the wary fish in our lake that have seen everything.....

Sorry to bump an old thread, but see these are available in larger sizes now. Thinking of some 4's or 6's for a French venue we are visiting this year with a barbless rule.
Are these any good?????

Thought I'd bring back an old thread. What are your long term thoughts on these hooks?

I like Pallatrax as a company always done well with their stumpy rigs for my method fishing. I contacted them about making me some without the swivels and a little longer and they made them for me a few years back. It's funny if another company had come up with the idea like Korda I would not have even had to ask as loads of people would have given them a go. i have not been fishing for a while so thought I would look at the website and saw them on there.

Giving these a try. They sound interesting. Shame they don't do larger sizes.

I've used them when float fishing and had carp to just under 17lb in the margins amongst the snags.

Gripz, appropriate name in my opinion.
