Bomber Split Rings

8 posts in this topic

Are the teardrop-shaped split rings that come on the Switchback Shad available anywhere else?

I like how I can vary the amount of wiggle by which end I tie to, and I think tying to the pointy end cuts down on the amount of grass the lure picks up.

Try Jannsnetcraft.com or lurepartsonline.com.

Both sites carry them.

I tried them both, but I couldn't find the teardrop-shaped split rings on either site.

They do have the oval rings, but I'd really like to find the teardrop split rings, if they are available.

Thank you Hughesy. I've bookmarked the site, and just ordered some. I hope you get a commission from the referral. :wink:

They only list the #1 size. Are bigger sizes available?

I love the Switchback, too. I have a 1/2oz model that won't switch back to rattling anymore, but it catches more fish in the silent mode than my rattling cranks.

You do a mean paint scheme. That sexy shad scheme catches them everywhere. :worship:

And Tim Horton does seem like the genuine article. I never see him without a smile on his face, and a positive attitude, plus he's a great fisherman.

Mark, holler at me if ya need larger ones. I have #1 & #2 Excaliber teardrop splitrings.

Thanks.

When the #1's get here, I'll know if they'll work or not.

I was hesitant, since #1 rings are small, but I don't know if the Excalibur sizing is the same as for standard split rings.

I'll let you know, one way or the other.
