split rings or not

Recommended Posts

I'd try running one of them at the side of the boat with and without and observe the action (or lack thereof). Sometimes there is a good reason why they don't have the split ring or even certain sized ones are used.

It all depends on the shape of the snap you're using.  If the snap is well rounded then you don't need a ring. Some tackle mfg'r assume you'll use this type of snap.   If you have a small snap or one with a "crook" in it then yes, put a ring on it.  Make sure it's a good quality ring though.
