Been using singles and Kevlar cord when looking for big Barra for quite a while now.

Lures are worth more with Ovals haven't you noticed

Blinky, that would certainly cut the noise down.

I do it for mechanics more than sound reduction......the hooks with cord can rotate up to a dozen times before locking up while a hook/split ring will get half a turn before locking up. Once the hook is jammed the fish has an advantage....the hook can be levered out much easier. Plus you don't loose fish when they're pinned with a big single.......

Good one Blinky, actually I don't think noise is the issue with barra, tends to wake them up.
Maybe with southern species it's a problem, wouldn't know personally though.

Worth, in USA, are great to deal with and make excellent split rings. I buy my oval split rings from them.  They are manufacturers but happy to sell in quantities less than 1000.

Garcia, that's our iconic sportfish the Barramundi. Grows to 1.5metres in length and up to 40kg plus. A close relative to the much bigger Nile Perch in Africa.
