Mustad Expands Range of Ultrapoint Replacement Treble Hooks
Mustad has added three new treble hooks to the UltraPoint line to accommodate a broader range of lures and applications. The new hooks are part of Mustad’s Elite Series of Treble Hooks, which have been created by Mustad Pro-Staffers, including Denny Brauer and Kevin VanDam. It includes both the KVD Elite Triple Grip® treble design – acclaimed for both its hooking and holding ability – and the Ultra NP Round Bend trebles, which boast a well-balanced, perfectly proportioned design for all-purpose applications.
“We’ve been fortunate to work with Mustad from the concept stage on these hooks, which has given us the ability to tweak design features to improve performance,” commented VanDam. Denny Brauer pointed out that the on-the-water testing was key. “We were able to throw a lot of different baits and track hook-up percentages. It helped me become a big fan of the round bend design for bigger, diving crank baits,” noted Denny. “It doesn’t compromise lure action and for folks who prefer a round bend treble, it doesn’t get any better than this.”
The new additions to the range include:
|KVD Elite Triple Grip Trebles Ref No. TG76NP-RB — now available with a red finish.
Opti-Angle Needle Point, chemically sharpened, Nor-Tempered, two extra short shank, extra strong, special wide bend, ringed, red finish. Available in sizes 1/0 through 8.
|Ultra NP Treble Ref No. TR58NP-RB – now available with a red finish.
Opt-Angle Needle Point, chemically sharpened, Nor-Tempered, standard shank length, round bend, ringed, red finish. Available in sizes 2 through 8.
|Ultra NP Treble Ref No. TR78NP-BN

Like all UltraPoint® hooks, they feature Mustad’s 4.3 Micro Sharp Point Technology for a sleek, slimmer, incredibly sharp point. This unique, two-stage Opti-Angle point has less metal removed in the sharpening process than with traditional methods, providing all the benefits of a true needle point with incredible strength and durability. Chemically sharpened and Nor-Tempered to be up to 30% stronger than conventional hooks, UltraPoint is a very sharp, very strong needle point that delivers quick, easy penetrations…and longer performance.
