I've collected 30+ flashers over the past 10 years that have broken terminal gear at the bait end of the flasher. I find that over time they all seem to break or weaken by constant connecting and changing gear. I use pretty well only Hot Spots. Anyway, I don't want to toss them out and am looking for ways to replace the terminal gear some how. They all still have a ball bearing swivel and metal loop. Somebody told me to just connect on a duolock snap to the metal loop and you're ok. Just doesn't seem like the perfect solution to me though. Any ideas?
