Default Favorite Treble Hook for stinger rigs and live bait

What's y'all's favorite Treble hook for live bait and stinger rigs? Just curious what's the best one for anything from live shrimp to live bait for kings.

Not a fan of trebles except as part of a stinger rig for Kings. My go-to hook forever for that has been the Eagle Claw 374 2x in bronze. Dependable and cheap.

Is it legal to use treble hooks for saltwater fishing in Florida?
Answer:

Follow this Hull Truth link to see this point argued. Treble hooks and live bait?

A treble hook is considered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission rule as a "multiple hook". The Florida Administrative Code (FAC) defines "multiple hook" in Chapter 68B-4.002(10) as: “Multiple hook” means two or more fishhooks bound together to comprise a single unit or any hook with a single shank and eye and two or more pointed ends, used to impale fish.

This should not be confused with multiple SINGLE hook rigs that are popular for pompano and other species. The difference being that in a multiple SINGLE hook rig, the hooks are not bound together to make one hook and are not several hooks sharing the same shank and eye.

The harvest of the following species is prohibited by or with the use of any multiple hook (treble hook) in conjunction with live or dead natural bait statewide:
black drum
flounder
permit
pompano
African pompano
red drum (redfish)
shark
sheepshead
snook
spotted seatrout
tarpon
tripletail

I don't see any pelagics on that list, no Kingfish, macks etc

Used these for years in charter fishing. They catch and they're cheap.
