Challenge Accepted!

When it comes to suspension hooks, gilson hooks are known for being pretty damn tough.  Of course if you put one in front of Supa and tell him it’s a strong hook the first thing he’ll say is “challenge accepted!”  So with the help of his Kaptive8 Suspension Krew family, Supa went balls to the wall and did everything he could to break one.

Here’s how the hook looked when Supa was finally finished with it.

What’s important to note here is that 99.9% of suspensions won’t actually involve the amount of stress that Supa put on the hook here.  You can also see that even with Supa trying for a hook failure, he was only able to bend it, not break it.  You can see more of Supa’s efforts to break the gilson in the Kaptive8 Suspension Krew gallery.

  1. It was an 8g 1 -1/4″ from Dissected Art. It was my personal set. I was just getting a feel for them as this was the 3rd Gilson I have ever had in my body. I have test hooks from everyone to see what I can do to them, my life has just been kinda hectic an changing but tests will resume as soon as I can.
