Not sure. 360 and a Ronnie are put together differently and interpretation can be contentious. However both have the hook mounted to a swivel that is free to turn 360 degrees in either direction. I would definitely OK my Ronnie rig with the owner/bailiff before fishing if the rules are that specific. Long drive home if you get chucked off for something that simple.

It should be fine, they aren't the same by a long way

I'm going to a lake in France which has a ban on 360 rigs.
When people/rules refer to a 360 rig, is it specifically the setup described by OP?

E.g. Does a ronnie rig also count as a 360 rig or would that still be allowed on this lake?


Edit: The rules are poorly translated. The specific wording is "No hooks on 360 degree swivel".

Phil, you have to trust what Mark says. It's my experience too. The first time I used it was on a French water and I had the hook tangled in the net after a couple of captures with no problems. I'd heard about putting shrink tube over the eye but didn't think it was worth it until I learned the hard way.

It was / is a very rare occurrence in the first place the shrink tube cover is a bit like an insurance policy. Just in case.

I'm not sure I can believe that. If the eye was that open then your hook link would be coming out the eye too

It stops the opening on the hook eye catching on the net fabric.

So what stops the eye still going in the netting. Surly, even with tubing over the eye, it still drops into the netting

Easier to put together, less bits to buy and stronger than the Ronnie. Unhook the fish in the net in the edge before lifting it out and itís not a dangerous rig.

It was not so much the rig itself,it was more to do with once the fish was netted.The eye of the hook would go through the net and could cause damage to the fishes mouth.That is why they show it now with shrinktube over the eye to prevent this from happening

It has been known to catch on the landing net and rip the fishes mouth the addition of a small piece of silicone or shrink tubing can prevent this. I think the spinner rig has for most people taken over from the 360 however that doesn't mean it's a better rig.

I've heard a lot of negative things about the 360 rig (where the hook is passed through the swivel) as apparently it is a dangerous rig to use as it can cause a lot of damage to the fish.

But what makes it so dangerous?

And if it really is that dangerous, then why do companies such as fox promote and endorse the rig?
