No idea, but after reading this article I did some tests myself and saw it happening, it didn't happen everytime but enough to make me stop using a ronnie with a wafter. My catch rate also went up.

Has that been a problem for the millions of stripped coated braid rigs thatís been cast out?

Thanks for the reply . From a movement point of view I canít see why you wouldnít use the ring on the German but use it on a Ronnie , thanks.

With the ring the hook can fall backwards over the hooklink. (I think it's due to how the rig falls through the water)

When using the German with a wafter what are the pros and cons of using a ring swivel as opposed to one without the ring, thanks ?

Having used both the slip d and German. I find the slip d a far better rig. So much so that I donít use the German anymore

Anyone use the turbo on a D rather than straight on the shank?

Yes, size 7. Fish it turbo German style with a korda ac swivel (without the ring) and a trimmed down Nash tungsten kicker
