Lure split rings


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why on stickbaits (out of the box) the  split rings for attaching the hooks are larger than the tow point split ring?

Sometimes it seems like the larger split rings used for attaching hooks are overkill as a smaller split ring would be sufficient to handle drag pressure and provide enough room for the hooks to move.

The tow points are a solid piece which is probably rated higher than the splits rings attached to it.

also can only assume cheaper lures use cheaper components hence bigger split rings. A quality stainless ring would be smaller than a similar rated split ring.
