Was excited to begin tying on these hooks since they offer a small profile with a larger hook gap. I felt the hooks needed to be a bit wider.

I love these hooks. In fact, when I ran out I went to local shops to try to find an equivalent to no satisfaction. The extra angle in the hook point is a huge deal when fighting a beasty trout, it holds every bit as well as a barb and yet is simple to release, allowing you to get your fish back in the water more quickly. I would like to tie with nothing else. I hope to see a lot more come out of the Tactical series hooks.
Warning: Bend too easy -
Just got back from a trip on the Madison, tied PMD soft hackles for the trip with the tactical hook. Caught a large brown, played him for a few moments and then my rod went slack, thought the fish just pulled the hook, but after further inspection the hook bent. Thought it was a fluke, quit using the bent hook. Next day the same thing happened on a larger fish - stopped using the hooks altogether. Very disappointed.
Nice Hook -

I purchased these to try as they are barbless. They are a little pricey but work great for some emerger patterns that I like to tie.
