Jimmie: Yes, you want that tacky feeling, but you always want to make sure your hooks are as sharp as possible. That is the main reason I went away from Mustad hooks back in the 80's, they just weren't consistently sharp like some of the other brands. I haven't tried one in years so I have no idea if they have changed or not.
