What is everyone take on using snap ring on spoons or just hook directly to the spoon. It is the old debate treble hook or single hook. can not wait to get on the water.

I looked up a snap ring on google. don't think that was the right ring..... I think i do know what you are getting at are split ring double loop rings.....without a ring ,,, you are going directly to a coast lock, barrel or barring type swivel...Will the swivel give the same " Range of Motion"????????? I too am chomping at the bit to get out.......

I don't know if it makes a difference but My thought is if you use a ball bearing snap with a gentle U like a fastlock or doulock you don't need to worry about a split ring on a spoon. :roll:

I can't say I've caught more fish on a spoon with or without a split ring. But I did but them on quite a few as it seemed to keep the paint fro chipping.... Not that chipped paint was a big deal either... Most of my best spoons were the rattiest chewed up spoons in my box.
