ESP Cryogen Para Point Carp Hooks
£3.54 – £4.25
ESP Cryogen Para Point
This is the absolute 'enforcer' of the range. The medium length shank,
with an almost crystal bend and inclined point, make this an incredibly
strong shape, further enhanced by the heavy forging and Cryogen
The long, fine needle sharp point, further enhanced by the slick Tufflon
coating ensures excellent hook holds and the straight eye allows this
pattern to be highly versatile as a bottom bait or pop up hook, with or
without a kicker. The straight eye makes it especially effective for a
Tungsten Loaded 'D-Rig' where the straight eye acts to increase the
gape. The 'Para' has already become a real favourite amongst our testers
and looks set to be the 'go to' all-rounder for years to come.
The initial launch of ESP Cryogen hooks in March 2016 caused a massive
stir with discerning anglers quickly recognising the distinct technical
advantages they offered. They were the result of over three years of
development and field testing which culminated in a new standard in
strength and point durability.
New manufacturing techniques including both high temperature and
cryogenic tempering have produced significantly stronger hooks with more
durable, long life points.
Cryogenic tempering is a process used to improve the molecular structure
in steel which in turn reduces stress and improves strength and wear
resistance. It is used in many disciplines with Formula 1 engine parts
being a classic example.
Bench tests on initial samples proved to us that the new tempering
processes combined with improved designs and heavy forging resulted in
hooks that were 25-30% stronger than other PTFE coated carp hooks ? in
the same wire gauge. We subsequently sent the hooks for independent
scientific testing on hardness and tensile strength and the tests
carried out confirmed and supported our initial findings.
So rather than having to improve strength by simply increasing wire
gauge, new manufacturing processes have allowed us to maintain optimum
wire gauges for each size which allow for fine, ultra-sharp needle
points which are now more durable than ever.
ESP is now delighted to introduce three new patterns into the Cryogen
range, with each type having been developed, tested and 'tweaked' over
the last 18 months. They have proved outstanding in field testing and
provide an even greater choice in high-performance, long-lasting carp
