    It's a personal thing but I don't like lures with 3 trebles.o_O

    However I've got some shoreline shiners and was wondering if anyone had done any experimental work on swapping to singles, either completely or just one or two hooks??

    Ive gone singles and it chanfed the action on lures too much!

    With the shoreline shiner, the split rings are the other way so singles go on to the side!

    I never thought to look at that Daniel, what about doubling up on split rings?
    But if it throws the lure action out then it's a non starter :(

    I use singles myself but it all depends on the lure :) as Daniel said it can alter the lures action which does take a bit of playing around to get right. I must say im sure like many have felt embarassed unhooking bass to find trebles stuck in the cheeks,gills,head and even body so i do like the concept of them. I remove the middle treble then put 2 connected split rings in its place i keep the front treble and put an outward facing single on the arse end. Being said 4 hook points is better than 9. Hope this helps James

    I've spent the equivalent of the national debt of Botswana on getting set up for softs over this wintero_O

    It is just the shiners I want to swap over to a more bass friendly lure so I'll give that a go James

    VMC singles are heavy and help balance finicky lures.
