ULTRAPOINTâ„¢ is created using state-of-the-art, three stage Opti-Angleâ„¢ sharpening technology which removes less metal from the point than traditional methods â€“ without compromising sharpness. The hook is then put through an innovative three stage computer-controlled tempering process â€“ Nor Temperâ„¢. This advance heat treatment transforms the hook into a fine grained, ultra strong micro-structure, increasing the strength up to 30% compared to conventional tempering methods. The result is an ultra sharp, ultra strong point that delivers quick, easy penetration ... and longer performance.
4.3 MICROSHARP POINT TECHNOLOGY The point length is engineered to be 4.3 times the wire diameter of the hook, which is the optimum ratio for maximum sharpness and strength. UltraPointÂ® hooks are 20% sharper and designed to stay sharper longer.
