JS1 Decoy Hooks

I have watched several Australian You Tube videos regarding trolling Rapala type lures which were converted to from treble to single hooks using JS1 Decoy Hooks. The eyes of these hooked are in line with the bend of the hook and would fit just great on a Rapala...

I looked up these hooks on eBay and the price was about $6.00 U.S. Dollars for a pack of five 5/0 hooks. Not too bad but, shipping from Vietnam (point of origin) was an additional $6.50 USD. Now $12.50 for five 5/0 hooks is just too high..
Sure hope that Charkbait or some other U.S. importer might stock up on these hooks. I have a hunch that if you imported several hundred or a thousand of these hookls that the per piece shipping would not be quite as bad.

I'll do some looking while at ICAST next week. I've been running ringed hooks which offer same rigging advantage on some lures. Like the way they swing, but there's an extra bit of hardware when connected to the split ring.


Great Stuff!
