Mustad discontinued them along with the 5/0 and 7/0 sizes.  I bought the last of the 5/0's that Terminal Tackle had as that's a popular size for a lot of the heads I make.

To the best of my knowledge no one else makes a good strong short shank 60 degree jig hook.  Everything else is longer shanks or not as strong.

Sucks. I have some 7/0 left but the 8/0 is what I need. Guess I’m sol at this point. Thanks for the info Dan

Right now I have the better part of a thousand of the 34185 size 8/0 left.  It's only a matter of time before I have go to something else so the thought has occurred to me that the ones I have left might be desired by other guys.  If I made them ( the 8/0's) available would anyone be interested in buying some?

Nope go on both places. There has to be another heavy gauge short shank hook out there

Without that hook I am dead in the water. I hope they haven't discoed.
