hooks and split rings.
The big problem with this plug out of the box is its flimsy hardware. It comes with cheap and weak split rings and flimsy hooks. So, the first thing I do before using this plug is to beef up the hardware.
First step is to remove the rings and hooks with split ring pliers. I then add new split rings which are 4H, 80 lb. test. Next, I add VMC 4X trebles in a size #2. It all takes about 5 minutes to accomplish. I buy my split rings and hooks online from a place called NJ Tackle. The website is HERE.
That's about it for beefing up this plug. The plug is now ready to take on just about anything in saltwater.
