Guru Xtra Strong Spade Hook Sz18 Barbless The X-Strong Spade pattern has been designed for hit-and-hold margin fishing on the pole. The extra wide gape and long, durable point result in great hook holds, allowing you to bully large carp, tench or barbel from snags or reeds. The design of the hook makes it perfect for use with large baits like meat. The spade makes it perfect for use with most conventional pole rigs and ensures that the line exits the hook shank perfectly in line for excellent hooking potential. There are six sizes in the range, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 20, which will cover you for most heavy-duty work on a range of venues.
