RidgeMonkey RM-Tec Hook Range
New hook range from RidgeMonkey coming soon!

Following an extensive development and testing period RidgeMonkey are pleased to announce that the much talked about RM-Tec range of carp hooks will soon be available in retail. All patterns feature special forged bends, the unique RM-Tec GunMetal finish and ridiculously sharp points straight out of the packet – the RidgeMonkey Pro team have been using them to tear apart waters all over Europe since their introduction and the results bear testament to just how strong, sharp and reliable these hooks are.

RidgeMonkey RM-Tec Beaked Point

Once the Beaked Point goes in it stays in! A deadly efficient hook that is perfect for a bottom bait, wafter, zig or floater. The downturned eye aids the hook’s ability to flip and the inturned point ensures very little movement once the hook is set.
- Straight Shank
- Needle-Sharp Beaked Point Downturned Eye
- Forged Bend
- Unique RM-Tec GunMetal Coating Micro Barb

RidgeMonkey RM-Tec Chod Hook

A super strong hook with a 25 degree upturned eye, the RM-Tec Chod Hook is ideal for any rig that incorporates a stiff hooklink. The extreme angle of the upturned eye allows the hooklink material to leave the hook without interference, a critical factor for both rig mechanics and strength when using stiff mono or fluorocarbon.
- Straight Shank
- Needle-Sharp Straight Point Upturned Eye
- Forged Bend
- Unique RM-Tec GunMetal Coating Micro Barb

RidgeMonkey RM-Tec Curved Shank

Suitable for all kinds of carp rigs, the Curved Shank is a great all-rounder and provides excellent hook holds thanks to an extended super-sharp point. Perfectly suited to the popular KD-style rig when used in conjunction with a wafter hookbait.
- Curved Shank
- Needle-Sharp Straight Point Straight Eye
- Forged Bend
- Unique RM-Tec GunMetal Coating Micro Barb

RidgeMonkey RM-Tec Straight Point

The strongest hook you will ever need, the RM-Tec Straight Point is the ideal hook for fishing close to snags or heavy weed. Featuring a straight eye and pin-sharp straight point for an instant hold, this classic pattern is a tough all-rounder suitable for a wide range of applications.
- Straight Shank
- Needle-Sharp Straight Point Straight Eye
- Forged Bend
- Unique RM-Tec GunMetal Coating Micro Barb

All RM-Tec hooks will be available in barbed and barbless, sizes 2/4/6/8. 10 per packet.
RRP: £4.99 - Expected availability: November
