I've been really happy with the KVD mustad 1x strong 2x short treble hooks since I started using them last year. I hardly ever lose a crankbait fish these days and I feel very confident everytime I stick a fish with these hooks:
Mustad KVD 1x Strong 2x Short Triple Grip Treble Hook
They come in 7 sizes, here is the list from largest to smallest:
KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 3/0 11pk $13.99
KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 2/0 11pk $11.49
KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 1/0 11pk $8.99
KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 1 11pk $7.99
KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 2 11pk $6.99
KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 4 11pk $6.49
KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 6 11pk $6.49
The ones in bold are sizes that I use. With the most common sizes being the 1 and the 2. I am looking for the biggest hooks I can get that will not tangle up with one another or get stuck on the bill of the crank. Nothing I hate more than a wasted cast on a crank that is fouled up. Here are examples on some of my Strike King Cranks with max sized hooks.
For the 10XD I use the giant 3/0.
6XD I was using the size 1 (actually in the pic they are size 1), but I switched to 1/0 recently which is slightly bigger and they do not get fouled up.
5XD size 1, in the past I was using size 2, but the 1s seem to work just fine so went up a size on them as well, those are size 1 in the pic
3XD size 4
For the Squarebills
2.5 size 1
1.5 size 2
1.0 size 4
Anybody else have some hook upgrades they like?

I second the Mustad triple grips. I also favor changing the split rings to Owner Hyperwires Owner Hyper Wire Split Rings And that's about as trophy as I get"Shit is not like it once was"- AggieGreg

Very trophy, yeah I replace the split ring on the bill if it is not oval. The oval split ring really makes sure your bait runs true.Strike King uses oval rings so I don't mess with them. But all my Bombers and DD22s get these:
6th Sense Oval Split Rings 25pk
as well as the KVD hooks.

And if I'm feeling super trophy I will go over to Coufal's house and paint orange dots on all my cranks whilst drinking beer"Shit is not like it once was"- AggieGreg

I am confused. Do I tie these crankerbaits directly to my TX rig Senko?

Do you guys run a swivel or direct tie?
i like a quick exchange just worry about it running untrue.There is a thin line between a mallard's mating call and a human fart. The only difference is cadence and odor.
