A little bit of advice please
I want to change split rings and hooks on my lures. I’ve changed the hooks before but not the rings. I am looking at rings on line, they show different sizes but they all look the same and I have no idea how they gauge the sizes. Any advice appreciated !

I use 6mm ones for most and sometimes 5mm

ive found rings are a minefield , some destroy my hooks in a few sessions through corrosion , go black and all sorts , just bought some daiwa tournament 5 and 6mm these seem ok so far , right p.i.t.a. eating your hooks

I use mainly 5 and 6mm but on larger needles I go to 7mm
The best obes are were the ends of both pieces of the ring are opposite each other
The ones tgat do not meet are usally easier to stretch
