Product Information
Specification

Over three years of development and the last two years spent thoroughly field testing prototype samples has culminated in the launch of a new range of hooks that we believe sets a new standard in strength and point durability.

New manufacturing techniques including both high temperature and cryogenic tempering have produced significantly stronger hooks with more durable, long life points.

Cryogenic tempering is a process used to improve the molecular structure in steel which in turn reduces stress and improves strength and wear resistance. It is used in many disciplines with Formula 1 engine parts being a classic example.

Bench tests on initial samples proved to us that the new tempering processes combined with improved designs and heavy forging resulted in hooks that were 25-30% stronger than other Teflon coated carp hooks in the same wire gauge. So rather than having to improve strength by simply increasing wire gauge, new manufacturing processes have allowed them to maintain optimum wire gauges for each size which allow for fine, ultra-sharp needle points which are now more durable than ever.

Over an exhaustive two year field testing period where the hooks were used by around 15 independent specialist carp anglers plus ESP consultants Terry Hearn, Kev Hewitt and Martin Bowler, feedback has been wholly positive from everyone. In fact they have barely heard of a point turning over let alone a hook gaping out! Over those two years a serious amount of big carp have been caught on the new hooks from a wide variety of waters and every angler who has used them came back wanting more!

GRIP RIGGER BARBLESS:

The shape is that of the Stiff Rigger, with the fine curved 'sticky' point of the Gripper. ESP have been getting asked for a while for a chod/stiff rigger hook with an ultra-sharp beaked point and have answered those pleas with a hook that has even converted a few straight point devotees. A beaked point can provide extra assurance especially in weedy or snaggy conditions, with unbeatable hook holds.Made in the same wire gauges as the Cryogen Stiff Riggers, making them the perfect pop up hook, the Grip Riggers feature heavy forging and of course the Cryogen treatment making them incredibly strong with durable points.
