when i run dipsy's out east in Geneva i ALWAYS run the ring and a snubber.

The advantages to running with the ring are better separation in the spreads and alot less line needed to reach the desired depths.

Since the area i fish is loaded with tackle busting steelhead i run 30lb seagaur flourocarbon leaders, 8ft long

the rings are famous for coming off. Personally, I try to glue all mine on. With the rings on, they will somewhat match the dive curves listed on website or precision trolling book. without them, you're kinda on your own. an alternate is to use the walker divers which are same diameter but no rings. I use 20lb trilene xt for walleye leaders. for steelies, I switch to 30lb trilene xt or "big game" mono with snubbers.
