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

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.

It's not really clear to me how the cones aren't fitting. Are they actually making it past the barb (and the curvature of the hook it too great for the cone to continue...), or does it just not fit over the barb. If it doesn't fit over the barb, simply sqeeze it down a bit; it's better for the fish and you anyways, if you know what I mean.
