I'm very impressed with these hooks, they've taken over almost all my commercial carp fishing to be honest. The smallest I use is the 18s and have no problems landing carp to 15lb on a 7lb hook-link. That amazes me to be honest, I think it must be the design and I'm sure a lot of time and research has gone into the making of this particular patten. The next size I use is the 16s and 14s for meat, corn and pellets. A size 8 pellet seems to complement the 16s, and double corn or meat with a band for the 14s. Even the odd foul hooked zoo creatures has never had one open on me. I normally loved the Drennan super specialist, but compared to the Guru they just look so thick in the wire now. For margin fishing I don't mind a heavy hook with say worms, but the QM1 is simply my go-to hook right now. Hope this review helps some. Richard.
