VMC 7025 Mystic Carp Medium Curve Shank Hooks come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

WITH a curved shank and a long, needle-sharp point, this new Mystic Carp hook pattern, the VMC 7025, is very versatile.

You can use the VMC 7025 hook on KD rigs with critically balanced wafters, or when using a double bait presented on the bottom.

The medium curve helps the hook flip over in the mouth of a fish, and the long, chemically sharpened point looks ideal for penetrating the mouth cleanly.

Made from high-carbon steel, coated in PTFE, the VMC 7025  hooks are strong, perfect for big fish.

Barbless (7025B) patterns are available in 4, 5, 6 and 8 sizes, micro-barbed in 2, 4, 5, 6 and 8.

There are also some Resin Closed Eye micro-barbed options is sizes 2 to 8.

Keep an eye on the Mystic Carp range from VMC. They’ve been bringing through some top quality releases.

Prices: £3.49-£3.99 a pack.
