Professional fly tyer Danny Ward says:
"The Kona Xtra Strong Stinger (XSS) is an awesome hook, I use them now instead of the Gamakatsu B10S in my double deceivers and other big streamer patterns I tie. I purchase mine through Hareline Dubbin and it is awesome that us commercial tyers can get them in bulk."
Professional fly tyer Matt Bennett (FlyGeekMatt) says:
The Kona Big Game Hunter BGH is a stellar carp hook. The BGH is totally different from anything Ahrex has. Reminds me of the Partridge Boiles I used to use for carp before they went away.
Professional fly tyer and fishing guide Brian Wise (Fly Fishing The Ozarks) says:
Being in the big streamer tying game I have tied on every hook imaginable. The Kona Xtra Strong Stinger (XSS) has completely replaced the Gamakatsu B10s as my go-to big streamer hook. The steel is top-notch and the hook is sticky-sharp... great hook!

Nick Williams of Oklahoma Fly Company says about the Kona Big Game Hunter (BGH):
Hooks from Kona Fishing make sweet small Clouser Minnows. Size #8 up to size 1/0!
Onion Creek Fly Co. says about the Kona Universal Strong Streamer (USS) hook:
Really loving these hooks for shrimp!
