2/0 is the best suited hook, that is the size that was intended for use. Its my only lure I dont use 3/0's on. May seem small but it gets teh job done on big tuna

I agree with Sami and Glenn on the 2/0 hooks. I used 3/0 also when that is what i had on me. The 2/0 also has less risk of opening up, it is a stronger hook.

As for the splitrings I started using the Varivas 200lb and 150lb and love them. I had the owners start to open on me so I switched to these. But i think any split ring has potential to open.

but if its a floating runboh, i was told 3/0 can probably get it to sink and work like a sinking runboh?

yes, 3/0 will make it sink very, very slowly.

Friend Bryon was using a 3/0 st-76 owners treble and it worked just fine on Yellowfin, so I don't see why they wouldnt work on bluefins.

If you are looking for the hooks they are already in the shop but we couldn't input all the products in the systhem today.
as for the Smith Baby runboh they will be available in April 2010.
i hope that could clear the dust on the Baby runboh arrival:)
