RE:Favorite striper hook

I don't get a lot of SW hooks up here in Prairie Land. I mostly use Gamakatsu Swash Eye 2/0, 3/0 and occasionally 4/0 for my pike flies. Mostly because of the needle point and extreme sharpness.
Any thougths about using these for SW?
They cost me about $0.50Cdn each,about $0.35US
What is the price range when you folks say a hook is expensive? by comparison to what other type hooks?
Has anyone thought of creating a sort of hook comparison chart with price/quality/sharpness/durability etc?

I plan to tie a fury (or flurry)of SW flies for my upcoming trip so keep the thread going. I'm learning lots...
