I'm a big fan of mustard Chinu, fabulous as the top hook on a pennel, but they only go up to 5/0 , amazingly cheap as well. Does anyone know of a decent short shank ( doesn't have to be Chinu) in 6/0 or above?
I know Cox and Rawl do them but they are really expensive, want something inexpensive, but obviously decent.

Thanks, have been looking through the recommendations, some are to me too expensive, some don't go big enough but these look good, any one used them, not sure if they are up to Huss and ( realistically strap) Conger?

The sakuma top gun is heavy gauge and comes in 6/0 but you'll need to check as one firms 6/0 is another 3/0

Same as Jackjock for the top guns ,everyone I use one as top hook it always hooks nicely in the jaws .

Also worth a look at the catfish hooks, very strong and thicker gauge, the 2/0 is similar gape to a 4-5/0 big mouth pattern the 6/0 are like 8/0 maybe bigger
