I was asked many times whether I use swivel or not to tie jigs.
I use both. When I need to change jigs often, I use swivel as illustated below and I tie directly if I have to hurry or I stick to one jig for a while.
Even I tie jig directly, I don't see much problem of twisting lines.
The other option is to tie jigs directly and use swivel 6 - 8 ft above jigs.

So Kil, you never tie to a solid ring then, huh?


some (a particular brand) of solid rings will cut mono just under 30lbs of pressure.

Ive seen it happen w/ my own eyes back to back on a bench w/ a scale.

I don't use terminal tackles much unless I feel absolutely necessary.
Adding one more is like adding one more potential problem. :)

Yep... click on: Angler's Pro Shop

Kil,

When you use a swivel on a split-ring like that, where do you attach the assist hook?
I connect solid ring to the split ring for assist hooks.

If they make rounder solid rings it would be great. I don't use them anymore, too flat - has edge to it and easier to slip off s/r. :D

owner solid rings arent good?


They are strong, but they also cut 60lb mono at less than 30lbs of pressure, I dont want to say anything bad about them though, as that seems to be about the only bad thing about them.
