Split rings

Recommended Posts

Hey guys been reading a lot on this topic but am placing an order this week for some stuff and want a solid answer on split rings. I am looking to order a bunch of the owner split rings to upgrade a lot of my lures. I have a veriaty of crank baits but am mainly going to start with my giant collection of red eye shad. I’ll be doing rings and hooks. Question is what size split ring for the hooks and what size for the oval line tie ring?? I see mixed answers on these. Any input is much apriaciated!

Myself I'd get #3 heavy for the baits.  I have no idea for the ovals.

I think mine is #2 hyper wire and it definitely bigger than most split ring those come with lures.

Don’t know prices for the Owner stuff, but Jann’s Netcraft sells stainless steel split rings that I used to convert my saltwater stuff over to in-line single hooks. Haven’t had any issues with them in the two years since I put them on. They were pretty darn cheap too.

#2 and #3 are what I use for a majority of my baits.
