i agree with greg these are not your fathers cs42's. i have tied on hundreds of the old dull silver ones and then they went to the "bronze" brown colored presentation ones and now to these (portugese?) made hooks. i didn't buy the new ones but maybe i should have to take photos of them side by side.
anyway a lot of guys like up eyes for putting a hitch on, but it depends if you are dead drifting or waking. in that case the daiichi alec jackson or 2421 in the larger sizes has a decent wire. that new tiemco bartleet style would probably be ok too, but the 7998 is pretty light.
