I hear ya man, it w asnt making it around the curve, I figured it out tho, with a minor bend with the hook.

Poogs Ill See what i can come up withj, i just got them on an eagle claw size 1.5/0 hook, to big IMO for tyign some buggers or other type flies

Dble Haul My best guess without seeing the actual hooks and cones is that they aren't matched perfectly for their respective sizes. If it's close you can "convince" them around the bend with some pliers or other such tool, but this tends to weaken the hook at the bend.

Dble Haul Have you been able to get the coneheads on other hooks of the same size and model, or are these four hooks different?
