The Partridge Universal Predator X was the hook that redifined the streamer game. Definitely a must have for every "meat fly” box, features one of the most trust worthy cutting point on the market and an incredible strenght they’re feared from predator fishes all around the world.
Is a wide gape micro-barbed, heavy weight, extra strong predator hook for all freshwater, estuary and saltwater applications. Straight-Eye and a Black Nickel Finish.
From Niklaus Bauer to Paolo Pacchiarini, those hooks are used on incredible articulated flies or even on the simplest tube fly rig.
In Italy and centre Europe they’re also fished on big trout such as marbles and hucho hucho cause tying a single hook flash fly has never been so easy and fun on the Universal Predator X perfectly proportionated shank and gape. We really do like to tye them using Semperfli Nano Silks to wrap them easely and tight, Ewing Rooster Saddles for adding lenght and movement, Pacchiarini’s Tails to enanche the flashness or the movement and finish the head using some NMF Titan Dubbing for volume and creating the shape we need cure with one of the Solarez UV Glues.
