Yeh i use the Owner solid rings to attach the swinging assist hook but use ballbearing swivels, they work alot better and i hardly loose a jig so no issue on paying a bit extra. As for the sizing, 100g jigs i use size #3...... 200g size #4........ and 300g plus i use #5 ball bearing!

Size 4 & 5 mainly , we don't want any failures when fishing PE8 & a full drag.

Someone asked me how we do the  hook swivel ring set up so I got a close up of a jig all set ready to go , this way you tie the line onto your swivel then you can change the jig or the hook as long as you have some good split ring pliers on hand , just about all my fishing is done with a swivel and ring on a leader then just whack on anything you want bottom rig , jig , trolling lure anything,  much better and stronger than a snap swivel.

Personally don't like using clips myself, just one more thing that can go wrong. But that's just me.

Only time I use clips is when trolling for billfish and want to be able to chance lure/leader setups or prerigged gars etc.
