Should you tie leader directly to lure or is the O ring better? 9EC2AC73-C818-4831-B122-14B8206CAE3C.jpeg

I always put on a split ring. I think there’s less chafing on the line when it’s able to move freely around on the cast and retrieve instead of rubbing tightly on the metal eye if you tie directly to it.

I always use a ring. Always Owner Hyper Wire. My personal preference. I also change out the back ring and hook as well (Hyper Wire/ Owner Stinger) YMMV...

Swap it with heavy assist hook off the top and tie to the ring on the assist hook. So you’re always attached to the same thing the fish is attached too
