Gardner Point Doctor 2 The Gardner Point Doctors are simple to use hook sharpeners that are perfect for keeping your hook points sticky sharp. Keeping your hook points razor sharp is the ultimate edge! This is simply because a sharper point will hook and penetrate faster and deeper and this will inevitably mean you hook and land more fish! Since the launch of the hugely popular and easy to use original Point Doctor (grey) we have been developing a second block. One that is slightly firmer texture that also contains a higher degree of abrasive material. Just like the original we wanted the new blocks to still be easier to use than conventional stones and files. The new Point Dr.2s unique abrasive rubber compound (red) is still forgiving enough so you can easily avoid applying too much pressure to the point, turning it over and ruining the hook, but the firmer texture and higher abrasion makes it quicker to use and better at taking a little bit more material off the hook, a little quicker It is still simplicity itself to use. Each stroke of the Point Doctor 2 removes a layer of the hooks plating or coated finish enhancing and polishing the hook point. The original Point Dr and the new Point Dr.2 are not suitable for totally reworking hook points but are perfect for improving points that are nearly sticky sharp. *Tip If one of the faces of your Point Doctor becomes grooved or clogged its simply a case of carefully slicing off a couple of millimetres from that face leaving a fresh abrasive surface that will work as good as new!
