    Those look OK and thanks for the response, but the ones in gman's intro to jigging thread really look as if they are completely round.

    Those are completly round and will work well for you. I'm almost 100% sure Gman uses them too.

    Chumlord, if you want to use a swivel instead, these work good and are strong as hell, they are ball bearing swivels instead of standard barrel swivels:

    APS Rings, or from another post... The ones I tried that I really like are #6 - 6mm ID, 10mm OD and 350lb rated:
    Solid Ring Assist Hook Jigging Pirk Fishing Jig 350lb - eBay (item 380021759157 end time Mar-22-09 01:35:20 PDT)

    These are extremely heavy duty. The #8 550lb solid is nice size too and even thicker. I personally wouldn't see need for any larger than the #8 for jigging/popping, but they do have up to #11 900lbs if you like.
    hey jason, those rings look pretty flat also. are they similar to the owners?

    Hey Brian, what's up?

    I got these when APS was out and didn't know any other options. Not perfectly round like a welded ring. But very close to round, thicker than Owner and price was right too... They're black chrome finished stainless. (Not sure why, maybe just to look cool, but still say stainless.;) )

    These are the #8 and #6:

    The #6 is ~1.9mm thick and ~2.1mm wide.

    The #8 is ~2.4mm thick and ~2.5mm wide.

    Later!

    when laying flat, it looks like the inner part has sharp edges. but when in upright position it appears to have rounded edge.

    Think that might be shadow from where it's pressed. There is a very small line in the middle where the die meets when stamped. (some better than others, could have prob been polished out, but qc is't perfect) But nothing major, not really any edges to speak of.

    Nothing if you use less than @ 15Lbs of drag. Too much drag(pressure) will cause the flat side on the owners to cut the leader.

    You've been lucky too, I've had two cut knots from them in the last year.
