ESP Cryogen Stiff Rigger Hooks
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 PTFE coated carp hooks ? in the same wire gauge. We subsequently sent the hooks for independent scientific testing on hardness and tensile strength and the tests carried out confirmed and supported our initial findings.
So rather than having to improve strength by simply increasing wire gauge, new manufacturing processes have allowed us to maintain optimum wire gauges for each size which allow for fine, ultra-sharp needle points which are now more durable than ever.
ESP are now delighted to introduce three new patterns into the Cryogen range, with each type having been developed, tested and ?tweaked? over the last 18 months. They have proved outstanding in field testing and provide an even greater choice in high performance, long lasting carp hooks
This is the absolute ?enforcer? of the range. The medium length shank, with an almost crystal bend and inclined point make this an incredibly strong shape, further enhanced by the heavy forging and Cryogen tempering process.
The long, fine needle sharp point, further enhanced by the slick Tufflon coating ensures excellent hook holds and the straight eye allows this pattern to be highly versatile as a bottom bait or pop up hook, with or without a kicker. The straight eye makes it especially effective for a Tungsten Loaded ?D-Rig? where the straight eye acts to increase the gape. The ?Para? has already become a real favourite amongst our testers and looks set to be the ?go to? all-rounder for years to come.
Available in barbed sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
