Been using the wide gapes for a while now

They are a bit heavier in the wire than the Korda ones but are extremely sharp and seem to stay sharp.

I've not used the Bank Tackle hooks, but I did try some hooks from another reputable Ebay seller.
The pattern was similar to the Korda Krank (one of my favourite hooks), and they were reasonably sharp out of the packet.
But when I hand sharpened them I could tell that the quality of steel was not as good as the Korda's.
Im not a Korda fanboy by the way.

Not about trying to get a cheaper hook at all to be fair. I like bank tackle and rate their other products so it was more about giving them my business....

I must admit the option of using 'bargain' hooks doesn't excite me.

Why would you think they're a bargain hook? There's a good chance they're probably the same hook as the branded ones, but as always use what you have confidence in

I haven't tried them, but I must admit the option of using 'bargain' hooks doesn't excite me. Why risk losing fish to save 20p . I'll stick to the tried and tested brands I know I can trust - and happy to pay the extra.

There's plenty of other opportunities to save a few bob where it isn't going to cost fish - bivvies, bedchairs, luggage etc.

I've used the Curve and Chod, both are very good. The Chod has the finest tip which is great for hooking but as always a trade off for longevity.

The ones I got seemed ok. They sharpened up nice but wouldn’t say they stand out to much from others other than the price
