Thanks everyone this has been really useful. Looking like itís the longshank + curve that means itís a nailer. Iíll avoid longshanks entirely until I see the owner and will also ask just to be extra safe

You might want to ask the club for some clarification on the rule.
Quite often these rules are written by people who don't realise there are other brands out there with the same pattern hook that's not called a "nailer"
There were regular nailers, just like a curved shank hook, and long shank nailers, just a longer shanked version.

ESP trighammers could technically be classed as a long shank curve by some pedants

Pretty sure youíll be ok with normal long shank hooks, the nailers had a bad reputation of mouth damage back in the day I donít know anyone that uses them any more in the U.K.

Hey, just to clarify as itís on my new club water rules. What are Ďnailersí in terms of hooks? Am I okay using a nash long shank twister or would that be considered a nailer? Theyíre banned so just want to be sure. Thanks!
