I believe these are what MasterPull use on their lines. Not all hooks are created equal by any means. How they "fail" is big difference, besides rating. In simple terms the hook you have will fail is a safe manner (opens up slowly) vs. breaking without any warning. In 14 years of instructing, I've yet to see a hook fail. **knocking on wood**
