I have a couple oval shaped split rings that I need to replace. Is there a standard size for a 5 or 6XD? Does this fit most crankbaits as well? I looked at some on TW and some companies have two sizes, and some have as many as four? Thanks for the help.

Take one with you and stop by Barlows and they can match the size.

Tom,

After putting my dial calipers on one of my 6XD's, those Barlows ones may be to big. The oval split ring on my 6XD is is smaller than 0.32, which is size 5 on the Barlows chart.

I also sent Strike King an e-mail asking them what size they use. If anyone else has input, please chime in. Normally I lose crankbaits before they hardware starts to rust... grin

I can confirm this statement. My plug knocker gets a workout when SoCal Tom is in the boat! Although I'm pretty sure I beat him in lost crankbaits this weekend, but he still holds the overall record.

If it helps, the one I measured on the 6XD was 0.275 outside diameter on the longest side.

So no one knows the size of the oval split rings? Evidently Strike King does not know either because I e-mailed them and got no answer...

I use 60lb #5. They are a little bigger than the stock SK ovals, but it honestly doesn't matter. They are close enough to work as intended.

I've been using Owner Oval 4's on mine. I can't remember exactly but I think it was a tactical bassin video that said they were 4s or 5s

TW has Owners from sizes 1-4. Bigger is better! Thanks for the replies.
