Shaped like the Daiichi 1170, the 1180 is a non-forged round wire hook. It also features the Daiichi mini-barb, an impressively small barb that is nearly invisible to the naked eye. Minute barbs hold fish but allow easy hook-ups and they are easily removed. The mini-barb is easy to pinch down.
The hooks are made of the finest high-carbon steel, which is hardened and tempered to an exacting formula that makes for a long point life and a very strong hook. Daiichi hooks use a 12-degree constant taper ground needle point eliminating irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots and gives amazing speed of penetration.
