THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME

You will never forget the sheer feeling of desperation as you watch the last wraps of line leave your reel, crescendoing into a snap as loud as a 22 shot that signifies you have been spooled!  Experienced anglers rely on a number of methods to catch big fish. One fundamental rule is to use a reel with enough line capacity for the species you seek.

When more capacity is desired, a “top shot” setup is the solution. That is, most of the reel is spooled with super-braid line before being “topped off” with anywhere from 100 to 300 yards of mono. The advantage is that a super-braid has a much smaller diameter than mono of the same or more breaking strength, so more of it can be packed on the reel. Meanwhile, the stretchy mono Top Shot provides a cushion that helps prevent a surging fish from parting the line or dislodging the hooks. In addition, the mono Top Shot is less visible and more abrasion-resistant.

POLARIZATION

 Our hunting and shooting lenses are not polarized. We took advantage of every engineering breakthrough from tint to color filtration to give you the best sight picture available.  One goal we achieved was uninhibited depth perception, a key component to accurate shooting.  

 

TINT AND VLT

The tint of the lens is probably the most misunderstood and underrated aspect if lens design.   Some people incorrectly assume the darker the lens the more protective it is.  Others equate the color of the exterior mirror coating to tint, this is also wrong.  Tint is the colors of the dye used in the lens making process.  Along with the other layers of the lens, tint is what controls the amount of light allowed to pass through your sunglass lenses. This is referred to as VLT or Visible Light Transmission. This number does not refer to how protective the lens is, just the amount of light passing through to you eye.

For Hook and Bullet, tint serves a specific purpose and is a key component in creating  Purpose Built Optics.  Choosing the right tint and VLT provides better visibility by controlling key aspects of the visible light spectrum.  Utilizing photonic dyes we create contrast to enhance your view in specific environments.  Through this process we are able to substantially enhance detail, revealing complex textures, subtle highlights, hidden shadows and vibrant colors.  From the environment, to your eye to the visual cortex of your brain, Purpose Built Optics are finely tuned and categorically grouped to maximize your visual advantage!

UV PROTECTION

You can't judge a pair of sunglasses by the color, at least not for eye protection purposes. PBO lenses use a proprietary UV-absorbing treatment to block 100% of UVA and UVB light. Because this treatment is colorless, clear lenses can block UV rays just as well as dark-colored lenses.

UV refers to the Ultraviolet Radiation that penetrates the Earth's atmosphere from the sun. In today’s market, it seems as if UV protection would be included on all lenses, but it is not.  Some of the less expensive sunglasses on the market save cost by not providing adequate protection for your eyes.   A dark lens without proper UV protection will fool your eyes into relaxing in bright sun.  This negates your natural and involuntary reflex to squint, allowing more damage than you would get without sunglasses at all. 

Our lenses are manufactured in Italy and follow an EU guideline that obliges sunglasses manufacturers to treat lenses against UV rays (UVA + UVB) (UV 400). All Hook and Bullet sunglasses are labeled with "CE" on the inside of the temple arm.  This symbol indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards and ensures that our sunglasses provide the utmost protection for your eyes.

BASE CURVE

Your peripheral vision plays a big part in what you see. Restricted peripheral is also referred to as tunnel vision. Use your hands to block the sides of your face. Now consider doing that wide open in an airboat in a narrow canal! You probably found that uncomfortable because you know there’s so much more to see than what is straight ahead. In our world your safety and success depends upon your ability to maximize all of our visual ques!  

The base curve is the measurement of the lens curvature or how much the lens curves to the shape of the face. Depending on how high or low the base curve is indicates how curved or flat the frame and lenses will be. The higher the base curve number, the more “wrap” you have. 

We offer two base curves, 6-Base and 8-Base.  A 6-base curve is a medium base that we consider the minimal curve for being on the water or in the field. An 8-base curve is considered high and creates a wraparound frame shape. An 8-base curve provides the most protection from the sun and allows the frames to hug your head while maximizing your peripheral vision.
