The Carp Spirit Razor Point Zig and Floater 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.
Description: a hook pattern dedicated to catching carp to specimen size on zig rigs and floaters.
Specifications: short shank; wide gape; non-glare PTFE finish; Japanese carbon steel construction; long, straight needle point; available in 8-12 sizes, in micro barbed and barbless formats.
My verdict: hook-holds when zig rigging aren’t the most reliable, but you can stack the odds more in your favour by using a super-sharp hook, such as these Razor Points.
The pattern feels light but strong, which is another plus when fishing up in the water.
They also have a slightly out-turned eye, the idea being that your hook sits perfectly beneath rig foam, ready to hook into a fish.
If you like fishing for carp in the upper layers, I’d recommend that you take a closer look at this sharp pattern.
