The Mustad Hoodlum hook is now available in a special Z-Steel
version, which creates opportunities beyond live baiting for this great hook.
- Z-Steel is a revolutionary new corrosion resistant finish which is
more corrosion-resistant than any other hook finish on the market today
including stainless steel.
- Z-Steel combines extreme corrosion resistance with the strength of
high carbon steel. The result is a genuinely corrosion-resistant hook with much
greater strength than equivalent conventional stainless hooks -- or putting it
another way, a ‘stainless’ hook with the tensile strength of carbon steel.
- Hooks finished in Z-Steel keep their corrosion resistance even
after wear and tear on the hook. And unlike some corrosion-resistant platings,
Z-Steel does not dull the hook point or compromise hook sharpness in any way.
- The compact shape of the Z-Steel Hoodlum, combined with its
extreme corrosion resistance and strong construction, make it a great choice
for small lures rather than heavy conventional stainless hooks which can weigh
down the lure and spoil its action.
