Bass Pro Shops XPS Oval Split Rings
These are just like the split rings that come on Lucky Craft lures and have the same quality. It is easier to tie a palomar knot with these especially with long minnow type jerk baits. I use them on the hooks for top water lures like the Sammy and any popper type lure and it seem that I have had fewer misses on the topwater action if I get a little anxious and try to set the hook before I feel the fish. This won't work with shorter crankbaits as the hooks will get tangled together a lot. Give these a try and you won't be disappointed.

Rick Clunn Signature Series Rings
These rings work well on all different size crank baits. They are designed so that you will never tie your line in the split of the ring. It works every time I tie a knot. Pretty smart idea. I wish that I would have thought of it.

USED ON ALL HIGH END CRANKBAITS
With the right tools split rings are easy to change. It makes sense to change them to the same rings used on high end crankbaits. Not only do they keep your knot off the split your lure will have a liite more action.

Best There Is
When tying lures on the normal split ring it always seems that the knot slips down to the split of the ring and have to retie or I lose my lures due to the line breaking at the knot. These oval split rings take care of that problem as the line is tied at the oval end of the rings. I have replaced all of the split rings on my lures with them and since I love using crank baits that means I had to replace over 100 round split rings with the BPS oval rings. I just bought another couple of #3 oval split rings to finally replace the round rings that are on some of my topwater lures. I just don't have to deal with the aggravation of a round split ring anymore and will always change them out on every new crank bait or topwater lure I buy.
