VMC's Nemesis SureSet® Circle Hooks are made with extra-tough Vanadium® Steel which makes them up to 25% stronger than regular carbon steel hooks. The Nemesis was designed for heavier lines and bigger baits.
With a fusion temperature of 1750°C, Vanadium® is a metal too tough to be used pure. Once alloyed with a high carbon steel, it becomes revolutionary. For not only is Vanadium® tough, it is light (density of 5.7 to be exact). Which is why it’s used for hard-wearing formula one engine parts. Vanadium® is twice as costly as HC80 carbon steels used for regular hooks, but offers tremendous performance gains when hardened and tempered properly. Up to 25% increased strength!
BLACK NICKLE FINISH
These coloured hooks receive a thin layer of varnish that will cover the hook without affecting the sharpness of its point. The varnish creates a shield on High Carbon or Vanadium steel by covering the entire hook surface. To ensure that the point keeps 100% of its sharpness, VMC has developed its unique varnish specification to insure the greatest overall coverage with the thinnest coating.
CONE CUT POINT
Owes its extreme sharpness to a unique combination of a triangular crest and a barb so fine that it assures, without force, a clean and perfect penetration beyond the barb.
