FlipGrip De-Hooker….. Review

The FlipGrip de-hooker is the latest generation of fishing hook removal tools. This innovation offers a number of benefits that many of the previous hook removers don’t provide. This device takes a page out of the fishing tackle manufacturer’s playbook by the utilization of their best design features and add in a couple of new ones. The Jay and front shaft , the two parts that contacting the fishhook when it is secured, are made out of high end stainless steel with a yield strength 4.5 times greater than 316 stainless steel and 1.5 times greater than titanium. In addition to stainless, the molded parts being constructed of 30% glass fiber filled nylon 6 with tongue and groove outer edges for additional strength and better alignment.

The FlipGrip’s unique hook removal process is based on how it secures the fish hook with the jay tip and then extends the shaft by pulling the trigger and pushing the fishhook against it. The smaller gripper allows more room for fish tissue to pass by the barb and out of the hook’s. By simply turning the FlipGrip, the hook is easily removed from the fish in a manner that is less damaging to the fish and gives the angler more control of the process.

While there are a number of hook removal tools out today, the FlipGrip gives today’s anglers a greatly improved option. This device seems to overcome the shortcomings of other hook removers. It secures the hook more firmly and allows the fisherman to de-hook the fish by flipping the fishhook over. The fishhook removal process is very similar to a line tension de-hooker but without the need to wrap the fishing line around your hand. I’m most impress with the fact that the device is largely constructed with stainless steel that is far better in the saltwater and acidic fishing environment. Best of all, it’s easy to use and doesn’t require practice to use properly. It also comes in 2 sizes with an Inshore model and an Offshore model, depending on the use.
