The guy fishing near me hooks into a fish of a live time, when I say 'what happened?' he said this is what happened, one mad fisherman, why do people use light wire hooks in the Canal??

The large size savage head isn't too bad. I've put a lot of pressure on those. But the smaller 2-3oz or whatever is in the picture is much thinner. Can easily wiggle/bend hook with hand

Hmm, I've caught a lot of nice stripers on the 3 1/2 oz and 5 1/3 oz Savages and never had a hook straightened out.

Drag used properly 

 

With the combat fishing as its been, your choice is pretty much fish a tight drag, or let the fish run past 12 guys, half of which will cast over you.

 

I make my own heads for the Savage tails. Need to cut off the angled portion of the rubber head but then they fit great. 8/0 Mustad jig hooks. Much better than either Savage stock.
