Default Eagle Claw E704 jig hooks from Captain Hooks?

Has anyone used this hook and is there difference between the Mustad M32798NPBN hook and the Eagle Claw E740. Are they the same size diameter and will the Eagle Claw hook fit in the mold that the Mustad is meant to go in? I am looking at the 4/0 and 5/0 hooks.

Thanks,

Joe

Default Re: Eagle Claw E704 jig hooks from Captain Hooks?

Most of the jig makers on the web use the new Eagle Claw black nickle hooks. It seems that Mustad moved the manufacture of hooks from the US to China and the quality has gone down. Eagle Claw hooks are a little smaller but they have excellent heat treatment that makes up for it. The smaller diameter may be a help for molds that don't pour well and they are made here.
The Eagle Claw number is EL2798, another plus is a lower price.
