HOOKS & PRE TIED RIGS | XPS Supercarbon

REAL SIZE

XPS SUPERCARBON Extra Performance Series is the name of Trabucco quality hooks developed for top match anglers, which now gets much wider also touching different segments such as feeder fishing, commercial carping, trout fishing, light drifting and beach ledgering. In line with existing series, also the new ones display “extra performance”, because the extreme quality is not only achieved with the development of new shapes, but also through the employed materials, the finish and functional details. The strength/lightness ratio has been tailored size by size, taking advantage of the special hi-carbon content steel, which is only available in Japan, where these fantastic hooks are produced under strict quality control. All points are chemically sharpened, then further finished by laser to get absolute perfection and durability.

Its code recalls the classic 120, as its shape comes from long shank popularity, but its strength is stepped up. In fact the wire thickness is oversized, thus the point has a wide base which enables it to bear stress and torsion inevitably generated during those long fights with big fish. Maggots, casters and worms are the ideal baits for it to catch chub, carp and huge bream, both on the pole and on waggler or feeder rods. No need to add a big barb on such strong point: that’s why Trabucco team opted for micro barb instead.

More and more match anglers now understand the great advantages of barbless hooks, which really can improve catch rates not only with the pole, but also with bolo, match and even feeder rods. All the words spent by experts, journalists and match winners about natural presentation immediately come into reality when somebody tries hooks like this 701XK by Trabucco. Both living baits and fighting fish are held by hook’s ankle, a vital part of the design because all stress and hooking power get through it. Problems greatly solved by a slightly forged curve and an in-turned point.

For all match anglers across Europe this pattern is a must since the eighties, and its popularity is probably second to none, thanks to the extreme efficiency in many conditions. The wide, round bend can accommodate several baits like maggots, casters worms, sweetcorn, punched bread and all their cocktails. Good for waggler and feeder fishing, has shown great chances with the bolognese and pole, too. 250
