RRPs: £4.25 a packet (10 hooks) | www.foxint.com
Fox has taken its time to replace the popular Armapoint range, but first impressions indicate the new Edges hooks have been worth the wait.
The most obvious thing about these new versions is their sharpness. All manufacturers tell you how sharp their hooks are, but these are appreciably sharper than almost every other brand on the market.
The range is also vast. Every situation can be covered with one of these patterns, though newcomers may find the eight-hook range a bit too big (there are three different curved patterns, for instance).
We've yet to give them a long-term going over, but the XC80 vanadium-forged steel looks meaty enough to cope with most situations without adding too much weight.
