ESP Cryogen Stiff Rigger Carp Hooks

ESP Cryogen Stiff Rigger

This legendary hook pattern has been further refined and improved to
make it the go-to hook for hinged stiff rig and chod rig presentations.

Compared with its predecessor the Mk-2, the super sharp point is longer
and finer and more inclined towards the shank for a stronger shape. The
point is also in-line with the 13 degree out-turned eye so all the force
is straight along the point section of the hook, rather than across the
gape making them incredibly strong. Heavy forging and PTFE Tufflon
coating plus no discernible increase in wire gauge but with superior
strength makes this the perfect pop-up hook!

Over three years of development and the last two years spent thoroughly
field testing prototype samples has culminated in the launch of a new
range of hooks that we believe sets a new standard in strength and point

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 of 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 Tufflon coated carp hooks in
the same wire gauge. 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.

Over an exhaustive two-year field testing period where the hooks were
used by around 15 independent specialist carp anglers plus ESP
consultants Terry Hearn, Kev Hewitt and Martin Bowler, feedback has been
wholly positive from everyone. In fact, we have barely heard of a point
turning over let alone a hook gaping out! Over those two years, a
serious amount of big carp have been caught on the new hooks from a wide
variety of waters and every angler who has used them came back wanting
