Replacing hooks and split rings on Hellcats

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

I’ve been making it a point to seek out and acquire some Hellcat swimmers. Obviously, all used, so the hardware needs replacing. I’ve read that they are very temperamental, and that the action can easily be lost or changed for the worse with the wrong hardware on them.  I’m wondering what size hooks I should be putting on? 


Thanks guys

If you try the 5 1/2in get yourself a ice pick to reshape the hook hangers as they tended to be more oval than round, splits would hang up. Stock the hooks were size 2.  Oversize kills the action.
