Gardner Specialist Sharpened Covert Dark Chod Hooks Gardner Specialist Sharpened Covert Dark Chod Hooks. The Covert Dark Chod hook is now available with a beautifully hand sharpened, long tapered straight point. Each hook has been individually honed, personally by the countrys leading hook sharpening expert Jason Hayward of Specialist Sharpened Hooks. Whether you choose to use the Chod hook pattern in conjunction with a pop up style presentation like a Hinged Stiff Rigor Chod Rig, or with bottom bait using a stiff hooklink like a classic D-Rig (clone rig) the re-profiled/honed hook point on each of these Specialist Sharpened Chod hooks optimises rig and hooking efficiency at several key levels. From pricking and the way the hook takes a secure initial hold, to the critical manner in which the hook penetrates fully, cleanly and quickly to offer the best possible hook holds without giving the fish opportunity to shake the hook out. In practice the honed points actually enhance the practical strength of this extremely strong hook pattern by making certain the hook has the greatest opportunity to take hold fully, burying securely and minimising the chance of opening out under extreme pressure. If youre an angler who is dedicating a huge amount of effort, time and money for a dream big fish or targeting particularly tricky carp, then these very special hooks will certainly make a difference to long term results when used correctly. Its simply the case that you will be gaining another few percent in trying to attain the absolute highest possible efficiency in your angling. Without doubt the enhanced hook points offer a discernible edge.
