What size hooks on Megabass 110 Jr.?

Post by ptorlax18 » Sun Dec 15, 2013 5:13 am

Simple thread. does anybody know what size hooks are on the Megabass 110 Jr? I have some RC stx Jrs…. I know inferior tackle hahaha. But I have the standard RC stxs and have changed them out to the correct Katsuage Out-Barb to match all my other real 110s. I don't have any 110 jr yet so i can't compare a size hook. Are they size 8? The size 6 just looks way to big on the bait

Yes, they are #8 regular barb VMC, but if you compare them to Owner ST-36 #8, Owner #8 would be a little bigger.

Yeah #8. I had to change two hooks out as a musky bent the stock hooks.
I don't see MB using VMC hooks like mentioned in another post.

ok thanks guys. yea megabsss has their own hooks. i actually contacted tackle warehouse about possibly stocking them but megabass doesn't package them for sale. i guess in japan you can buy them in bulk. but from what i have heard the vmc out barbs are the best bet when needing to replace the stock hooks. so i am almost out of my megabass outbarbs that i luckily was a ble to acquire. so my next order will be of number 8 vmc's for the jr. and a package of number 6 vmc outbarbs for future 110s and rc stx's

That topic has info about what VMC makes hooks for Megabass.

I doubt Megabass makes own hooks, or any terminal tackle for themselves.
I recall Megabass told be long time ago what they use VMC outbarbs for Vision Oneten, but I don't have that in writing.
Maybe they switch to different manufacture since that.

Just contact Megabass USA and buy some. They aren't that expensive unless you are buying for every crank in your box.

It seems like Vision 110 uses #6 Megabass outbarb hooks.
