Unmatched Strength

When it comes to fishing hooks, strength is of utmost importance. That’s why Mustad’s Big Game 7691DT Southern and Tuna Fishing Hook is the top choice for many experienced fishermen. With our unique three-stage computer controlled tempering process, we are able to transform the hook into a fine grained, ultrastrong microstructure. This increases the strength of our hooks by up to 30% compared to conventional tempering methods.

But it’s not just about strength. Mustad also has strict quality controls over the brittleness and flexibility of our hooks. Our superior technology allows us to have complete control over the final outcome, ensuring that our hooks are not only strong but also durable and reliable.

Surface Treatment

Mustad hooks come in a wide range of colors and finishes to suit different types of fishing. From black nickel and gold to bronze, we have developed special coatings that are tailored to specific fishing conditions. For example, our Duratin coating is perfect for long lining hooks, while lacquer is ideal for freshwater fishing. We also offer a limited selection of stainless-steel hooks for those who prefer this material.

One of the challenges in the fishing hook industry is increasing the rust resistance of our products. Mustad is constantly working on improving the rust resistance of our hooks to ensure that they last longer and perform better in various fishing conditions.

Rust Resistance

Experienced fishermen know the importance of selecting the right hooks for their bait and fishing method. Different coatings have different features and properties, which can affect the rust resistance of the hooks. To test the rust resistance of our hooks, Mustad runs tests in accordance with the ASTM B-117 norm set up by the American Society for Testing and Materials.

In these tests, hooks coated with stainless steel show only 3% surface rust after a given number of hours in a salt spray chamber. Duratin-coated hooks have 8% surface rust, while Double Nickel-coated hooks have 30% surface rust. It’s important to note that these results may vary depending on factors such as the thickness of the coating, fishing conditions, water temperature, type of bait, and pH value.

Quality Control

At Mustad, quality control is a top priority at all stages of production. From the initial wire technology to the nor-tempering process, we ensure that our hooks are lighter and up to 20% stronger than competitors. All hook patterns go through the Mustad bending test (mbtest), where we measure the load in kilograms that it takes for the hook to straighten out. This test also applies to swivels and lines, ensuring that all our products meet the highest standards of quality and performance.

When you choose Mustad Big Game 7691DT Southern and Tuna Fishing Hook, you can be confident that you are using a product that is unmatched in strength, rust resistance, and overall quality. With our innovative technology and strict quality controls, Mustad continues to be the go-to brand for serious fishermen around the world.
