The length of the shank was dictated by the shape of the bend and the final position of the eye. Essentially, it’s long enough to maintain that all important working gape as the hook flips and takes hold, without being so elongated that the hook acts as a lever.
Similarly, practical experience showed that a stronger wire is vital on curved shank hooks to maintain reliability across the most demanding angling situations, and also in terms of the wires rigidity as flexing hooks can create problems in terms of hook movement within the fish’s mouth. Think of it like this, the strong wire and unique shape locks the hook solidly in place and keeps it there.
The resulting CVR pattern has proven itself REMARKABLE during long term testing. Whether combined with conventional rigs like blow back rigs, or on specialist rigs like the German and Ronnie the CVR’s design offers genuine mechanical advantages in terms of initial pricking and maintenance of the strongest possible hook hold. There is no other hook pattern quite like the CVR – which is the ultimate expression of curved shank hook mechanics.
These CVR Rigga hooks feature:
Super sharp, long tapered, chemically etched straight point.
CVR’s feature a medium length curved shank, wide gape and non reverse bend.
A 20° in-turned eye ensures optimum hooking performance with any type of hooklink and are a recommended 360 rig pattern.
Dull PTFE Coating reduces corrosion, aids penetration and minimises glare.
Manufactured in Japan from the finest extra strong double tempered, forged, high carbon steel wire.
