    I have quite a few older light and heavy jigs that have treble hooks on them and I want to change out to newer single hooks. Since I don't do brazing or such, my thought wold be to use heavy split rings on the jigs and attach the hook to the split ring. I am open for ideas. Thanks.

    Don't remember the hook # but there is a large single hook that is not closed all the way. Cut off the treble put on the single and close with a bench vise . Easy peasy and no split ring or brazing needed .

    It would be pretty hard to open a split right far enough to get it through the hole in an iron. Take em to a shop and have them braze for you if you don't want to do it yourself.

    Personally, no thanks. If the metal is soft enough to be closed, it is also soft enough to be opened back up. I don’t think there are any shortcuts

    I do see now that you are in Utah so there are probably no local shops that can do this for you.

    If you want, send me a PM. Wrap them up in a box and send them to me with the hooks you want, I’ll send them back to you’ll dialed in.

    I put these on a couple of Colt Snipers and was a bit wary about using them based on my experience with Mustad Siwash hooks. After installing the Owner Stingers I hung the jig from a 65 pound bucket of lead for 12 hours and had no deformation to the hook what so ever. Based on the hooks thin wire I wouldn't use the if larger model fish are in the neighborhood. It's been my experience the thinner wire hooks tear out under a heavy load. jmho

    Mustad makes a stainless one also or used to .All hooks have to be closed at one point so I don't quite follow Nate's reasoning .There are lot's of ways to skin a cat .Go with the one your comfortable with.

    that siwash hook will not open up once closed for nobody’s business . I use that hook on all my hammered diamond and buck tail jigs . For GOM ... I’ve had over 40lb drag on that hook and jbhc 100 and 100lb soft steel wind on Caught big grouper on same jig .. actually I’m running the same siwash since 2016

    What's your thought on the owner siwash for tuna fishing?
