The new Grommet with Dual Solid ring set provides the best connection point for Leader, Kevlar Assist Cord and Split Ring to a jig. Rated at 335lb, the Leader is tied to the grommet on the large solid ring, and the Assist Cord is tied directly onto the large solid ring. The Jig is connected to the Small solid ring using a split ring. The advantage of using this system is a more free-swinging jig, and a much stronger more reliable system compared to other rings. The grommet that you attach your leader too is wide and grooved to accept heavy mono leader doing away with the need for using leader protector sleeves and eliminating bust offs where the leader attaches to the jig. There are 5 Grommets with Dual Solid Ring sets per pack. A must have piece of terminal tackle for any serious jigger.
The most common tackle failure is at the leader-solid ring knot which is usually the result of a big fish, the size fish we dream of.
Every knot is a potential weakness which will always be exposed by monster fish, you never hear of small fish busting tackle!
Commonly used solid rings sometimes have sharp edges and are often small in cross section. If the cross section is smaller than the cross section of the leader, it will cut the leader when under pressure.
To overcome the problem of busted leader knots, Chris Wong of Jig Star developed the Double Ring & Grommet. The leader is wrapped around the grommet which provides protection and a large diameter wrap. The leader can either be knotted or crimped. The smaller ring is for the assist hook cord and provides separation from damaging the leader. A split ring is needed to connect the jig to this terminal system.
This system allows greater of movement of all components resulting in a much livelier jig action. No longer will the use of stiff fluorocarbon or heavy leaders dampen jig action and leader connections will always be reliable.
After the early years suffering major bust offs, the Ring & Grommet has proven the difference in reliability. We are now seeing more monster fish caught jigging when using this terminal product.
