I am currently opting for the smaller 7x hooks to retain balance, more so b/c I did not order any 3X or 4X ones ... but I can if that is better.

On the same topic, I could not get any 7x hooks to work on a spook to have it balance correctly ... but my smallest was a 1/0 treble.

Art,

It depends a lot on the plug. If you are only looking at Zaras, then I have to tell you that I have used the 2/0 7X Daiichi trebles on the 5-inch long Super Spook and it fishes (walks) fine. I try not to use too many plugs less than 5 inches in length but they all carry the 2/0 7X without any problems. They make a 1/0 if that makes you feel more comfortable. On plugs with 3 small trebles, I usually go with a 3/0 up front, leave the middle eyelet bare, and employ a 2/0 on the rear.
