Solid Ring vs Split Ring

Split Ring vs. Solid Ring with SPRO®


Kennesaw, GA (January 21, 2022) SPRO® makes precision, nearly indestructible connection devices – both split rings and solid rings – but savvy anglers know that using the right size and style is the key to maximizing hookups and fish in the boat. SPRO’s power split rings can deal with the harshest environments and the strongest fish without flexing or giving way. Use them to add movement to your lures or change the orientation of your hooks, and with the aid of a quality pair of split ring pliers, you can make quick changes. You can even add a split ring to the hook used for live bait to add substantial amounts of action.


While SPRO’s stainless steel split rings are rated to handle just about anything you can throw at them, there are some situations where a solid ring is preferable. Light line, for example, can get caught in the gap around sharp edges and potentially get cut or slip out and come free. That’s when a solid ring, with no sharp points or possible points of exit, can be your call. They are particularly useful in offshore jigging, a main line is often connected to a solid ring, which in turn is affixed to a split ring that holds the lure. That enables maximum strength and the least likelihood of failure. Unlike some less expensive solid rings, SPRO’s rings are perfectly round, with no edges to cut line. Like SPRO’s split rings, they have the perfect blend of size to strength, keeping things stealthy and natural but also maximizing the chance of landing the fish of a lifetime.


Don’t forget to analyze all of the terminal tackle on other brands of lures straight out of the package or those that have been in your tackle box for generations. Many come with inferior hardware, made to cut corners, and a trophy fish will make short work of those inefficient points of failure. Don’t give them that opportunity.
