Yeah size 4 is spot on 99% of the time. I always use putty even if not needed to create more weight and have never had a top lip hook hold. Should have pictured the two on Friday. Bang on centre bottom of the mouth about 10mm back.

Agree hook size is important on a ronnie. I found hook holds even with a 6 to be all over the place. 4's improved it but 2's got rid of the problem all together. Excellent hook holds in the right place.

I think hooksize and pattern makes a big difference with the Ronnie.

Size 6 is the smallest hook Iíd use. Muggas are fantastic and last two Iíve had on the kamakura Kranks have been near perfect Holds.

Whatís odd is the fish I have landed on the Ronnie were never coming off. But Iíve lost more than ever before. What your saying makes sense, maybe they do turn too quickly and thereís not enough time to go further in the mouth. Who knows. Iíve got a load of multis now tied with the the tungsten loaded, I wonít be changing from those from now on.

I prefer a multi rig as well, but do you think a bigger more curved hooks are better such as a size 4 mugga, from reading about the rig there seems to be more success using bigger hooks?

I think that the Ronnie rig may be too good a hooker. I have caught too many fish on it hooked in the top of the mouth - something that I have only had before when floater fishing.

I think that the rig spins and hooks so fast that it often grabs the edge of the mouth and the vertical hook stops it being further back in the mouth.

I have gone back to choddies and multi rig for this reason.

Iíve found the opposite with that bloody rig, hence the question on hooklink. Iím going back to multi rigs. Iíve lost more fish to hookpulls since using the Ronnie (2 months), than I did for the whole of last year. Another hyped rig thatís mediocre at best IMO.

Just,within past two weeks, started to use the ESP and Ronnie Rigs.
Results have been really great.
I use figure of eight knots at both ends of link with no problems
Use with confidence

Have tied up a few with the figure of 8 knot and a few with a 4 turn grinner.
Both seem to hold up to a fair old pull - lets see what works best....

thanks for the replies.
