Hooks/Split Rings

Post by stubbs » Wed Jan 10, 2018 3:14 pm

Trying to figure out a good replacement for my split rings and hooks on some of the LC Pointers I throw in the surf. What are you guys using that holds up fairly well in SW?

Owner split rings. Currently using the VMC inline singles.

What are you targeting/ location/ current.
In my neck of the woods stripers to 50lbs and bluefish to 20. Upwards of a 3kt current

Rasco rings or owner rings

vmc 4x trebles

owner singles

What lucky crafts??
the flash minnow sr 190's ? great baits.
I'll use wolverines and big singles on them as well

The ones at lurepartsonline are the best. They have an XX-strong model (not the triple ring as its too heavy)

I've always been happy with Owner. Solid choice.

Do not like Owner hooks in saltwater, because they rust.
Split rings are great though.

Switched completely from Owner to Gamakatsu.
Nanosmooth Coat for freshwater.
Hyper Shield for saltwater.

Gamakatsu Hyper Shield...Hmm, I've been using the 3x Eagle Claw from Walmart (dark grey)- they're 'alright'.

Best place to get the Hyper Shield?
