The Gardner Point Doctor is a very simple to use hook sharpening tool that is perfect for keeping your hook points sticky sharp.
Since the Point Dr’s introduction, everyone that we demonstrate the Point Doctor to has agreed that one of its biggest advantages is that it is ‘idiot proof’. This is because of the unique abrasive rubber compound is forgiving, which means that it’s easy to control, avoiding applying too much pressure to the point, turning it over and ruining the hook.
Each stroke of the Point Doctor gently removes a fine layer of the hooks plated or coated finish from the surface of the hook, helping to improve and enhancing the hook point. Not only will a sharper hook turn more pickups into fish on the bank, but a sharper point also ensures the hook will penetrate further, easier. This will naturally mean you land more fish!
The ‘Point Dr’ is not suitable for totally reworking hook points, but is perfect for improving points that are ‘nearly’ sticky sharp.
*Tip – If one of the faces of your Point Doctor becomes grooved or clogged it’s simply a case of carefully slicing off a couple of millimetres of that surface and that fresh abrasive surface will be as good as new!
