The Gripper was subject to various design tweaks through the development process and the end result was well worth waiting for! The super fine, long curved point is the perfect shape and during testing, provided exceptionally secure hook holds. Other features include a 10-degree in-turned eye (slightly less than the Classic to allow for the inclined beaked point), heavy forging, micro barb and of course, the slick PTFE Teflon coating.

The Gripper was subject to various design tweaks through the development process and the end result was well worth waiting for! The super fine, long curved point is the perfect shape and during testing, provided exceptionally secure hook holds. Other features include a 10-degree in-turned eye (slightly less than the Classic to allow for the...

{"id":7262151303,"title":"ESP Cryogen Stiff Rigger","handle":"esp-cryogen-stiff-rigger","description":"\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eThis legendary hook pattern has been further refined and improved to make it the go-to hook for hinged stiff rig and chod rig presentations. Compared with its predecessor the Mk-2, the super sharp point is longer and finer and more inclined towards the shank for a stronger shape. The point is also in-line with the 13-degree out-turned eye so all the force is straight along the point section of the hook, rather than across the gape making them incredibly strong. Heavy forging and PTFE Teflon coating plus no discernible increase in wire gauge but with superior strength makes this the perfect pop-up hook!

This legendary hook pattern has been further refined and improved to make it the go-to hook for hinged stiff rig and chod rig presentations. Compared with its predecessor the Mk-2, the super sharp point is longer and finer and more inclined towards the shank for a stronger shape. The point is also in-line with the 13-degree out-turned eye so all...

They were the result of over three years of development and field testing which culminated in a new standard in strength and point durability.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eNew manufacturing techniques including both high temperature and cryogenic tempering have produced significantly stronger hooks with more durable, long life points.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eCryogenic tempering is a process used to improve the molecular structure of steel which in turn reduces stress and improves strength and wear resistance. It is used in many disciplines with Formula 1 engine parts being a classic example.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eBench tests on initial samples proved to us that the new tempering processes combined with improved designs and heavy forging resulted in hooks that were 25-30% stronger than other PTFE coated carp hooks in the same wire gauge. We subsequently sent the hooks for independent scientific testing on hardness and tensile strength and the tests carried out confirmed and supported our initial findings.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eSo rather than having to improve strength by simply increasing wire gauge, new manufacturing processes have allowed us to maintain optimum wire gauges for each size which allow for fine, ultra-sharp needle points which are now more durable than ever.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eESP is now delighted to introduce three new patterns into the Cryogen range, with each type having been developed, tested and 'tweaked' over the last 18 months.
