Visalia, Calif. – July 12, 2021 – Visalia, Calif. based manufacturer, Spearpoint Performance Hooks, arrived at virtual ICAST in 2020 with a modicum of finesse when they introduced their GP Finesse and Wide Gap models.
For ICAST 2021, Spearpoint brings the Fury.
Expanding on their lineup of patent pending hooks, Spearpoint Performance Hooks is pleased to announce the Fury Flip, a 2X strong flipping hook, built from premium high carbon steel, honed to a needle-sharp point with a large barb plated with a black nickel finish and topped off with a molded keeper barb and finished with a welded eye.
As with the GP Finesse and Wide Gap versions, the Fury Flip is constructed around Spearpoint’s patent pending VGrip® design that helps perfectly present soft plastic lures, but more importantly securely holds onto fish once they have been hooked. VGrip® technology ensures that each fish is hooked deep, and that the hook securely holds, resulting in some of the highest hook-to-land ratios on the market.
Erik Hennesay, Spearpoint Performance Hooks CEO said the project has been in the works. “Our plan has been to provide a comprehensive lineup of hooks for the consumer, and the Fury Flip is the next step in that progression,” said Hennesay. “There is probably no more geographically universal technique than flipping, and the Fury Flip allows us to let anglers take advantage of our VGrip® Technology’s effectiveness, in a hook designed to handle most everything.”
In testing, Hennesay, and Vice President Art Nubaryan and their local pros put the Fury Flip through its paces on the famed big bass waters of the California Delta. They tested with a range of Fluorocarbon and braided line strengths, which resulted in hook-to-land ratios that reached 100-percent efficiencies.
In addition to landing efficiency, anglers were given one hook and asked to provide feedback on point retention and flexing. The result is that anglers reported the points retaining sharpness for most of the day without needing sharpening, and zero instances of sprung or bent hooks.
Hennesay reported that he and Nubaryan were more than encouraged with the feedback. “We saw very clean rigging on all types of lures, and hooks that performed very well,”
