What Size Split Ring To Connect Blade On Chatterbait?

Recommended Posts

What size split ring do I need to connect the blade to the jighead? I'm going to order them online and I don't know anything about split ring sizes.

Make sure you get quality ones or you'll ruin a bunch putting them on and have them pull apart while you're fighting fish too.

Barlows tackle has stainless and one made from spring steel, you want the spring steel, the difference is the spring steel will close even when opened further than they were maeant to.

I bought a whole bunch of owner hyper wire split rings.  Size 2's

Yeah I didn't realize how hard they were to put on until I just did my first one with my hands.  Much harder than taking them on and off cranks and hooks. Good thing I have some split ring pliers coming in the mail.

I was about to say split ring pliers are a must, makes it so much easier.

 

I learned the hard way with the cheap split rings as well, d**n things wont close back after you open them. Glad you got some quality ones.

I've got a few different pairs of split ring pliers.  A micro screw driver still works best for me.  Poke the flat blade through, and then twist it to open the ring.

good call on the owner split rings.  i tried some cheaper mustad rings before and had the issue of them opening up, but not really closing back all the way.  those hyper wire split rings are legit.

 

and i'm going to have to try Jfrancho's suggestion on the small screwdriver.  the split ring pliers work, but sometimes they can be a little more cumbersome than they should be....

Super quality split rings you've mentioned. I definitely recommend those that Barlow's has to anyone.
