The Middy QCurve CS-1 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 range for catching match carp on a Method feeder.

Specifications: available in 10, 12, 14 and 16 sizes; curved shape for improved hooking; forged carbon steel construction; eyed; barbless; Teflon impregnated to produce a long-lasting point; anti-glint finish.

My verdict: designed for using with a Method feeder, these hooks look as if they will take hold in the bottom lip of a carp, especially when presenting a wafter hook bait on a hair-rigged bait band.

I like their wide gapes and long, in-turned points that are slightly offset, ready to prick fish at the earliest opportunity.

The anti-glint finish can only help, especially in clear waters.

Price: £1.75 for ten.
