Reliability, strength and top quality is mandatory when you use small split rings. These american split rings are made from the strongest possible stainless steel with a form memory being just perfect for the solid rings normally used for release rigs. The wire is corrosion resistant – coated with zinc.
When using small hooks on release rigs – you also need small split rings in order to get a neat presentation of the rig. Smaller split rings – and rings in general – also has the advantage, that the risk of hooks catching up on the rings is reduced the smaller the rings are. For seatrout size #0-1 is the perfect size with fine wire for the most delicate rigs and regular wire for the standard rigs. For pike rigs #1 with regular wire is the perfect standard choice for most standard release rigs with size 6-4 hooks – and #2 with regular wire is fine for the very large lures and hooks in the size range from 2-1.
