    Where perch are the target/bonus about 10yrs ago I was given some VMC 9032 these are fine wire extremely sharp, and stay sharp, they take some abuse before blunting.

    They are available in silver or black have a micro barb. The last lot I got were from Fishermans friend, I still use them now when barbed hooks are allowed, especially in winter using size 16/18 for feeder work and sizes 20/22/24 for float work.

    Going to find out if the 9033 barbless are the same pattern :confused: and if still available will be replacing the barbed with barbless this winter.

    i used to use preston PR25s for canal work, tiny bit tougher and similar shape to your b511, have a rummage and try if you can find any.
