Gamakatsu Releases NEW Nano Alpha Hook

Gamakatsu® has introduced a proprietary new finish for their most popular hook styles. In the ever-evolving world of fishing tackle, Gamakatsu has once again raised the bar with their latest innovation: the Nano Alpha finish. Representing a paradigm shift in hook performance, these hooks are a testament to Gamakatsu’s commitment to excellence. The Nano Alpha Hooks oer anglers a plethora of advantages, including slicker performance and enhanced corrosion resistance—all at the same aordable price as their standard hooks.

Key Features of the New Nano Alpha Hook Technology:

  • 2X Slicker Performance: The Nano Alpha Hooks boast an exceptionally smooth surface which increases penetration by two times over standard plated hooks. That allows these hooks to penetrate quicker and farther than standard finishes, delivering higher landing ratios for fish of all species.
  • 4X Better Corrosion Resistance: The Nano Alpha coating technology provides superior corrosion resistance over standard hook plating. This coating not only prolongs the life of the hooks but also ensures they maintain their peak performance in both freshwater and saltwater environments. It prevents rust and corrosion four times better from developing on hooks particularly on the points which quickly dulls hooks.
  • Aordable Excellence: Gamakatsu understands the importance of delivering top-notch quality at competitive pricing. The Nano Alpha Hooks are offered at the same price point as standard hook finishes like NS Black, red or bronze, making this breakthrough technology much more accessible

Gamakatsu USA Sales Manager, Ted Thibault is excited to introduce them to the U.S. market.

“We have been utilizing the Nano Alpha finish on a variety of hooks in Japan over the last few years and felt it was time to offer this superior technology in the USA,” he said. “Anglers expect the best when they tie on a Gamakatsu hook, and this is exactly what Nano Alpha offers. “

Nano Alpha finish hooks will be available at retailers across the US starting on March 15, 2024.
