Top 3 Split Rings for Musky Fishing
Split Rings serve a lot of functions for fishermen. They can connect the leader to the lure or connect the hooks to the lure, these small circular pieces of collided pieces of wire serve a great purpose. Here are the top 3 split rings that are used in the musky industry.
Bucher Tackle-Super Strength Split Rings
Your worries are over! Replace your favorite big fish lures with Bucher’s
new Super Strength Split Rings and never worry again about split ring failure. These special made split rings are at least (3) three times stronger than the conventional rings now being sold on most big lures today. Why use a split ring this tough? The answer is simple. Many big fish are lost each and every season due to split ring failure. Hypothetically, a trophy fish may indeed be hooked good, but what if the split rings pull out during the battle. The fish swims away with a mouth full of hooks, and you end up with a hookless lure.

Wolverine Triple Split Rings
As the Suick neared the surface, the water erupted into an enormous geyser. The musky came rocketing out of the water; 47 inches of head-shaking fury with a bad attitude and a mouth full of hooks. She made a powerful run, stripping drag off, and then the line went slack… I reeled frantically expecting to catch up to the fish that was charging the boat, but only the lure floated back. Upon examining the lure, I was shocked at what I saw; one hook missing at the expense of an opened split ring! I sat there for a long time just shaking my head and staring at the lure, thinking “I don’t ever want this to happen again”!
It was this event back in 1992 that spawned the birth of the worlds strongest split ring, the “Super Ring” by Wolverine Tackle Co. Having 19 years in the metalworking/machining industry, I had all the resources and contacts for extensive research and development. By experimenting with different types of steels, heat-treating processes, and metal finishing, I was able to create a split ring that was much stronger than any available.
But that wasn’t the end of it- I incorporated a superior 3 coil design that gave it UNBELIEVABLE strength! The “Super Ring” was now all I wanted it to be, a split ring that could be used with total confidence!
At Wolverine Tackle Co., our goal is to provide the finest tackle available to the discriminating angler. It makes absolutely no sense for people to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on fishing equipment only to lose that long awaited trophy by skimping a few pennies on inferior split rings.
