So, no more C70S for me. I guess I'm back to the old 34007, which hasn't let me down, and maybe I'll start experimenting with fancy Japanese hooks. Still, it's a disappointment to find the C709S can't stand up to bonewfishing, since it seems like a superb hook in all other ways.

The new Mustad Signature series are sharper and use a stronger alloy steel in the 34007 as well as the C70SD.
So many places to fish.. friends to make.......so little time.
