I'll contribute some hook notes/details for reference. I also made a new thread with the same info.
Halco 130 oem, owner st66 4x 2/0, mustad 9430 5x 2/0...Weight of hooks and wire diameter near the bend. I haven't gone tuna fishing yet, but I'm a hoarder/gear whore. Mustad are MUCH cheaper than Owner.www.360tuna.com

Weight and wire diameter near bend.
Thanks to everyone for sharing information.
Basically the hooks that came in the lure are trash, but i found that if you put on heavy hooks the lure dont swim as well, I like more the BKK vipers trebles the raptors are good but the are to heavy they are similar to the OWNER, other solid option is use inline single hooks i have a few lures whit singles and so far i have not see difference when fighting the fish,I never use those Mustad hooks before so i cant comment on those but fighting big fish and cheap hooks dont mix well believe me i know $4 plus a hook sound crazy but you only lose one tuna to a cheap hook and you understand, also i think the most important thing is that the lure swim correctly you can tell that whit big heavy hooks the lure have lest action more like just being dragged to the water, just go to a place whit clear water and experiment whit different size hooks and you be surprised how much the lure action change depending on the hook.
