I see no reason to change if its what you have handy but a lot of guys twist their own screw eyes from SS wire which works real well. I use cotter pins a lot in my swimbaits i just pinch in some score lineson the shank to give them a little more holding power. super glue, Iv been weary of it for terminal connection points imho I would move up to a epoxy never know when a wall hanger will hit.
