I use the round Decoys Larry with no problems. Wife took an 85cm Jew today using one. I do agree that Bream could be an issue when using them. We have been using the largest size in them for Flathead and our Jew.

maybe the snaps get wedged on just the right angle between 2 rocks and the rocks squeeze the snaps, acting like fingers prying them open.

On rare occasions i've had my trebles crushed into a pretzel by bream - so they definitely have the crushing power to open up a snap
mine were the 000 model

That Photo has got me fired up - I've been a bit slack on the Jewies this year.

Yeah I used to use the #0 decoy round snap without incident

Yeah you've got a right to be upset when a 4lb leader opens up a 12lb snap.

I mainly use decoy round snaps and have had one open up but I'd only just changed lures and don't know if i closed it properly.
Run the mustad fastachs for cod lures
and OGM ocean snaps for pelagics and jewies (note I don't chase the pelagics often)

Hadnt heard of the OMGs - are they as easy to slip on as the diagram suggests

Very easy to clip on when the tow point is exposed but can be tricky if it's somewhere hard to get. Great for stickbaits and most shallow running bibbed lures.

Thank you for your generous offer - but if the truth be known - I'm pretty lazy and I dont actually love testing gear - I view it as a necessary fishing chore - so I only tend to test individual bits and bobs I have a specific interest in.
