AK Hook Type G
In recent years, as fishing vessels and equipment tend to be getting bigger, the need for riggings withstanding more stronger pulling power has also increased. Therefore, we were asked to develop a new hook for connecting the gill nets. It must have "the compact size", "the round shape to prevent itself from getting caught in nets ", and "stronger than the conventional product".
