These Covert Tungsten ‘Ronnie Sleeves’ are a streamlined sleeve, designed for use with size 12 QC or XT swivels that are used with the popular Ronnie Rig (Spinner) and German Rig.
The internal features mean that the sleeve sits neatly over the top half of the swivel, keeping everything flush and tidy, without inhibiting the essential rotational movement of the hook.
They are available in 2 options related to their weight. The standard sleeve that is ‘unweighted’ and the ‘heavy’ version offers the angler the benefit of being a tidy counter balance for use with high buoyancy hook baits.
The ‘standard’ Ronnie Sleeve is perfect for use with the hugely popular and effective Ronnie, with pop-ups that need minimal balancing i.e. shop bought 12mm hook baits that largely ‘balance’ under the weight of the hook. Being unweighted, this version is also ideally suited for sleeving the swivel on ‘German’ style rigs with balanced bottom baits, e.g. wafters, snowman balanced tigers, etc.
The ‘heavy version is made specifically for use with custom and high buoyancy hook baits, like cork balled pop-ups. These sleeves are also fantastic as a counterweight for Hinged Stiff Rigs and naked Chods if you prefer to have the hook link rigid on eth swivel, as opposed to incorporating a looped hinge.
The sleeves are simple to use. Just slide securely down onto the swivel, securing the hook link in place and balancing the hook bait with no need for shrink tube. This makes changing hooks quick and simple.
These ‘Ronnie Sleeves’ are manufactured with a tungsten polymer compound.
