Split Rings

Recommended Posts

I’m in the process of replacing my treble hooks on all my hardbaits and am coming across some split rings that are needing replaced. I’ve always just had some BPS rings that I’ll slap on if they get bent or if I find a lure. I’m lookin to get replacements and was wondering what sizes would be best to put on. I’ve been looking at the Owner Hyper Wire series and of course the Owner Ovals for line ties. The bulk of my hardbaits are KVD’s 1.0, 1.5 shallow, 1.5, 2.5, Red Eye Shads, Tungsten 2-Taps, KVD J200 & J300, then some Rapala #6 Shad Raps and some Bagley Squarebills. I figure one size would work for most since they’re all about the same size. Any recommendations or advice would be awesome and much appreciated!

I'll be going through all my old jerk and crank baits this winter, replacing trebles as needed.

 

My personal opinion - measure and replace with the same size for both split-rings and hooks. The lures were designed and tested with certain specifications - including those sizes. Changing sizes of either could affect the performance of the lure.

The owner hyper wire I use a lot of 2 and 3.  The shadrap and kvd 1.0 will take a 2.  The 1.5 kvd I use a #3

I’ve never replaced my split rings before, except for my line ties. I do replace all my trebles with different sizes though. I use Mustad KVD 1x Strong 2x Short Triple Grips religiously, and always go up one hook size from stock size. Ex: KVD 1.5 Squarebill has #4 Stock hooks, I put on #2 KVD 1x Strong 2x Short Triple Grips.

Do the same every year. My TW order just came in. Specifics will be obvious...Size 2s and 3s will cover most typical bass baits.
