    Cons: haven\'t found any yet.
    Pros: great hooks for dropshotting.
    Have used several different style hooks for dropshotting (VMC Spinshot, Standout Drop Shot hook, etc.), but I like and trust these XPS octopus style hooks more than any others I\'ve used so far. Reliably good hookups every time. These hooks are strong and needle sharp. I rig them with a Palomar knot and feed the tag end back through the front of the eye, then attach a drop shot weight with clip at whatever depth I prefer. That seems to keep the hook upright and most hookups are in the roof of the fish\'s mouth, sometimes in the lip. I prefer the 2/0 size. So far this spring (2013), I\'ve hooked and landed fish weighing 8lbs 3oz and 10lbs even with this rig, not to mention numerous smaller fish. Video illustration of how to rig this hook with dropshot rig here: http://youtu.be/DhQA8dP9b9E\r\n
