    Paul you will need the 4/0 hooks and I would stick with the Texposer ones even though they are probably not the strongest...

    The hook profile allows you to rig the slug 'poker straight' which is what you want with these.

    For me the best way is as I said with the Texposer in #4/0,,,rig it straight and then if you want added weight to get it down then use the belly weights that you can get that are designed for the hooks.
    If you have all that weight just on the front you will be slightly ruining the design of the lure,far better to have the weight on the very long hook shank of the texposer hook.
    That is why they designed the belly weights to be under rather than in front of the straight lure.

    nick is bang on but i have found the a 5/0 will give you more and better hook ups, that is weightless though. matt hooper is the slug master, he will put you straight

    Yep Matt is the slug master, I'd say 3/0s are a tiny bit small, 4/0 at least and Matt suggested 5/0's Texposers for six inchers so thats what I use now, the cone weights work for me when fishing slug gills (half a 6" slug welded to the tail of a redgill) I use 7, 10 or 14g depending on how far I want to cast them, I think your slugs might be a tiny bit bent maybe?
