I’m no expert when it comes to pole rigs but I always use QM1s on them. Even ready tied rigs get the hook changed for a QM1.

I use them laid on with meat. Also Preston PR1's which are very similar and cheaper.

I use them for everything - I know they say there is specific hooks for specific types of fishing but I ain’t ever had a problem - as above Preston do same pattern but cheaper

Great hooks with good holding power. Only problem I have is unhooking them, my fat fingers can't seem to get a hold of them.

I must be the only person that don't get on with these hooks, tried them twice now. Sorry just don't like them. I have just mist bits on these hooks that any other.

A few years ago people started recommending them for grayling fishing trotting, the story went they prevented grayling slipping the hook.
Well I tried them, and it was indeed true grayling did not get off the hook when firmly set. But getting them on the hook first was a big problem.

Quite funny really I mentioned on here a few years back that I thought they were brilliant for the pellet wag, and I got basically called an idiot and told they were only for method feeder/ bolt rig style ??

If it works for you pal ?
The only thing I’ve been told is only use them with an hair and no bait directly on the hook.......
