My concern of tying the knot on the weld is that most welds on the ring are very porous. My belief is, its like putting sandpaper on the line and risk chafing the line especially if a good pulling fish is on the jig.
Wanted to see what you other jig fisherman think about this.
I Dont always tie to the weld, mostly under or above it, but when I do tie to the weld, I never lost a jig. I figured what the hell, I'm fishing 50lb and I retie after every fish. I will post a caption in the video though.
