I would never laugh at that! ( serious face) I use them in my Clousers and have for a few years now. I use pliars to bend the eye down. I can bend them out enough to save them when I hook up on the bottom, unless I hook the eyes. I've caught Pike as big as 43 inches on them and not lost a single fish to them straightening out. But they have saved me a countless number of flies.

All but the top Clouser on the left are on #2 Aberdeen hooks. They are all on Aberdeens though. Some are up to 1/0.
And they glow in the dark.
