The perfect Aberdeen has a slightly squared round bend. The extra width between the shank and the hook point allows the point to stand away from the bulk of the bait.
Some Aberdeens are made to flex (slow curing) E595-E594 before breaking but now manufacturers prefer to quench the metal for speed of manufacture. With 11 different types on this site you should be able to find one that suits you.
Round bend hooks excel in the codling, flatfish, Ray & Bass fishing seasons.
Light wire hooks baited with worms (E202)& (E275) avoid excessive puncturing and allow more bait juice to reach the fish.
