I would highly recommend to stick to the size range normally chosen for deep drop circle hooks, that being from between 5/0 - 7/0.

I also always recommend to shop around, and I do not believe you need any exotic hooks for deep dropping....since most of the well noted hook manufacturers when they post HD or 3x or heavier wire, should/will work well enough.

If you only had access to the well noted MUSTAD or EAGLE CLAW hooks brands, you would not notice any difference from the more noted Gama-watsa, Owner and other high-end hook manufacturers. We have used the OE BRAND HD - 3X circles, and still do not have anyone complaining yet about these hooks opening up.....

Thanks. EC. I tied most of my rigs with 11/0 mustads I was only planning on making a few heavier.
