    The 14723BL i know well. Turn it upside down and you have the perfect profile of an adult mayfly sitting on the water.
    Grip do have a new barbless light wire scud hook called the 14711.

    But the 14711 is barbed...
    Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line;
    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook, With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey

    Yes the 14711 is barbed and not new. However there may be a 14711BL?

    That would also be pretty cool.

    Since the Grip hooks are exactly the same as the Akita brand and Akita does an AK 751

    It makes sense that Grip could bring in a barbless Scud hook.
