I prefer the Mustad Triple Grips.... Generally replace the standard hooks on cranks with them.

The china factory made me a Mustad copy of the triple grip hook and said I canot be sued if I use them on my floatbacks.

The samples are very good and have a shorter shank (kvd) than the original triple grip from Kingfisher
I should sell them to Kingfisher.
The EWG Treble. looks very similar.
They say a test of a treble hook is to drag a treble along an idiots arm and if it hooks the idiot use it.
The owner hook they sent me skids allong the idiots arm.

Hey
I tested them and wouldn't compromise the lures with inferior hooks.
I am olso looking at the pre ringed aftermarket hook sales to compliment the system

There is no point using crap hooks as we want to develop the name of Floatback quality hooks for replacement

I reckon a lot of okes will buy replacement hooks of their choice whatever that may be.
The beads appear standard or am I wrong?

Yes
Just ordinary 6mm necklace beads

I am looking to also supply tungsten beads as an accessory to either make the lures suspend or dive to deeper depths .30Ft + re John Easton Fishtech
Pimp my Lure
Its a deep diving, shallow jerkbait, back off structure, suspending crankbait all in one lure.

UPDATE
We have just received some extremely exciting news regarding the Floatback Lure, which is looking to tap into a $100 Billion per year consumer sector.

In parallel with fundraising, the team behind the unique, patented fishing lure has already lined up an agreement with one of the largest and most experienced distributors of outdoor products in the US - Innovation Village.

Innovation Village has more than 20 years' experience in launching, manufacturing, packaging, positioning and, most importantly, selling new products via a massive network of agents across 50 states.

This is big news indeed. Innovation Village's team of 120 agents will ensure the Floatback Lure will be distributed in all the right places, from small tackle shops to national stores.

In addition, they will be securing free slots on infomercials for the Floatback Lure, worth millions of dollars in exposure.

Counted amongst their clients are Cabelas, Sports Authority, Dick's Bass Pro Shops, QVC and Amazon to name but a few. With all these names distributing the product, this agreement will almost certainly catapult the Floatback Lure into the fishing arena over the next 12-18 months.

Cools tuff, I'm happy for you Duncan. I think the deep diving version dives deep enough on it's own without extra weight, that's if the design will allow it to dive deeper??

The big question: How will mass manufacture affect the current properties of the lure?

The new model has 12 mths fishing modifications
The o ring is now held in mechanically, not glued, if needed it can be replaced.
The mid hook o ring is not under tension and can rotate freely when casting and the tail hook is 6mm from the back instead of 12mm to let the tail hook hang through the centreline of the lure
