I follow this guy on YouTube. He has some good tips. He does one every day at 4:00. I thought today's was interesting.
this was my first thought as well, although i rarely set the hook like the guys on tv!I definitely would prefer the welded ring over the split ring. Split rings are great for treble-hook pull baits, but when I swing hard on a slack line T-rig, I wouldn’t want to chance the knot catching on the end of the split ring.
