a little trick i do, once i have made up the pirk, i put a few 1/2 hitch knots on the split ring failing that and if short of time i lock split ring with super glue
never had a ring openning since

Thanks for the info I bought 6 various boxes of gear and will now change rings! The tips on glue etc were helpful too! The carbon fibre boat rod they sold is great but I'm not sure about the quiver tip to go with it!!!!!!
