    I’ve been running the VMC 9299 quite a bit this spring. Landing ratio thus far is pretty darn good compared to others I have used in the past. I have also been running a raven size 2 specialist with equal results.

    Agreed on sizing - it may seem like a big hook, but matching bead diameter to hook gap helps a ton.

    I was skimming Ebay once and saw a box of 1000 VMC 9299 in size 4 that was confiscated by the TSA at an airport. I've got a lifetime suppy now. :D
