Those look good to me! The silver joints done properly are without a doubt strong enough. Crappy joints give way with a relatively easy twist. My concern with the silver is durability. I only have my own anecdotal evidence—but I’ve repaired far more failed silver joints than bronze. These are typically not ones that I did initially, but from off-the-rack lures. To be fair, no method is perfect. I’ve seen every one of them (silver, bronze, TIG) fail when not done right, and/or not taken care of—as in left to corrode in the elements on the top deck of a sport boat.I'm really curious about that too, you guys have been doing this way longer than I have, but even when I barely get a bead on and just wet the joint and get everything pretty flush I still can't break the silver soldered rings for the life of me. I should try ringing two jigs to each other and twisting them that way to get more impingement and up the stress concentration.
But can you see any issues with these? First two are from a vertical jig I rigged up, last one is just a test ring, I can't find any of the ones I've really twisted up.View attachment 1274360View attachment 1274361View attachment 1274362
