Avid Reaction LSK (Longshank)

The long-awaited Avid Reaction range of barbed and barbless hooks in sizes 4-10 covers just about every modern carp tactic. Between them, the four patterns are perfect for chod and zig rigs and solid PVA bag work, as well as the more complex anti-eject, KD, 36, and Withy Pool rigs, using standard pop-up and bottom baits.

All hooks are finished in Avid’s bespoke non-glare green that adds to their concealment and camouflage factor. Made from a super strong carbon steel wire, they are sticky sharp straight from the packet, so there’s no need to sharpen or tweak them in any way.

This pattern boasts a straight point and straight eye. Due to the length of the shank, it can be used for various presentations but performs especially well with blow-back and other anti-eject rigs. Avid’s team of top carp anglers have had a lot of success using it with a long shrink tube kicker.
