Hello all I have a question I was looking at mustad 34007-SS-DT O'shaughnessy for my mold. It states on there site it’s 1x short. Can anyone explain how much shorter it is compared to standard size. I can not find actually length. Plus has anyone ever used this hook and is it strong. Thank you.

I think it is the standard shank length and the 340011(?) was the long shank. If i remember right it was the same length as the 3407. Not sure what size you are using. i used the smaller size 1 thru 4/0 for fly hooks. It is not a strong hook and bends easily. The 3407 is a much stronger hook but not stainless.

34007 is a good hook in the biggest sizes. Really not my favorite hook because it doesn't sharpen well enough for my standards.  I've only used it in 8/0 and it's a very strong hook. For larger game fish i wouldn't consider anything smaller than 8/0, but that's just me- i'm nuts.  You'll need to use a bronze eyelet to make it work.

That what I did used a sinker eyelet to attach the hook. I pried the heck out of it to see if it would pull out. So far it held up. The bottom one is the 34184 from mustad. I wanted the bucktail to be shorter. But I got the wrong hook at the tackle shop it was 34091 it felt weak. That’s why I was inquiring about a 2x strong hook.

There are no standards in the hook manufacturing industry.  There isn't even any standards from one hook style to another in the same manufacturers different product lines.

The Mustad #3407 is one of the most ubiquitous hooks available.  It's a good hook for a lot of applications.  The one you're asking about is the stainless steel version of the same hook.

Personally I never use stainless steel hooks.  They never rot or rust out.  If you have to put back or lose a fish with a stainless steel hook in it that fish will have that hook in it until it dies which may be a long miserable death because of the hook.
