The Curve Shank Hook within the Advanced Angling Solutions Predator Carp Hook Range has all the key features of the leading Curve Shank Hooks on the market with a few subtle improvements. The hooks themselves have all the characteristic key features such as The long, straight needle point which is exceptionally sharp and combines with the low profile micro barb to aid penetration. The Curve Shank Hooks have a precise contour and down-turned eye which continues this perfect curve.
Produced in super high carbon steel, the pattern is heavily forged for maximum strength and has a non-glare, ultra slick PTFE finish for improved durability.
Carp find this pattern very tricky to eject due to its curved shank, which drives into their bottom lip. It always flips when sucked in and there is no need to add any shrink tubing due to its in-turned eye.
It can be used with a variety of presentations such as the blowback rig, KD rig and many more. The point is very sharp and it is reliable and strong. A firm favourite among some of the best carp anglers in the country.
This hook pattern is also a fantastic addition to the Multi Rig. Rather than using a Choddy Hook, you can incorporate a Curve Shank. Due to the way that the rig is designed the curve will sit like a claw and whichever way the carp sucks in the hook bait, the point will be facing down ready to grab the bottom lip.
When tied to a flexible link such as soft braid or a stripped portion of coated Dyneema, they can be relied upon to turn over and provide a secure, correctly located hook hold virtually every time.
The entire range uses a dull, matt coating, in the original dark slate grey colouring. This PTFE treatment makes the surface of the hook noticeably smoother. In turn, this aids penetration and also prevents the hook from rusting. Consequently, this makes them last an awful lot longer. Not only this, it also camouflages them into the lake bed. Having seen how the carp react towards your end tackle, removing the glint from your hook is imperative in inducing consistent takes.
Hook design was at the forefront of interest for the lads at AAS and the predator carp hook range is the result of over a 100 cumulative years of carp angling experience on and off the bank and many, many carp later. Having been field tested by hook experts, you know that they’re perfect for the job.
Of course, we believe that our hooks are the sharpest out there, and our stringent quality control means that they should stay that way!
The range now includes a pattern to suit every form of carp fishing; whether that is bottom bait rigs, pop-ups, zig rigs or surface fishing. There are subtle hooks and large, powerful hooks to target cute, wary specimens in the winter or huge, European carp in snags. We will continue to add to the range and develop it as and when it is appropriate, but rest assured, you’ll always be able to trust an Advanced Angling Solutions hook.
Our subtle camo end tackle has been catching more carp for thousands of carpers. It’s those little extra percentage points that add up to the capture of a lifetime and having camouflaged hooks definitely counts towards having that season-defining session or gets you one step closer to that landmark carp.
As with the rest of the Predator carp hook range, the Curve Shank Hooks have been packaged in a tough durable containment that protects the needle point on the hooks during transit and storage.
Perhaps we’ve just created the ultimate hook range? We think so!!!
