IMHO the TMC's are well worth it. They won't open up due to strength of the alloy and are superior for a number of other reasons including wire diameter for delicate flats presentations, a tiny barb (which I crush anyway) and a razor chemically sharpened point out of the box.

I could see someone who fishes a lot of broken coral or can't stay away from thick mangroves having an aversion to high quality hooks for the $$. Although I will cast to any bone in any hazard, I generally don't fish either of those situations so prefer to use Tiemco 811s, the quality standard in saltwater hooks for medium sized gamefish.
