Cutting closed eye hooks...why?

I see articles on guys cutting closed eyed trebles to attach on a plug. I never understood that. Use a strong split ring like wolverine triple or the really HD doubles. The weight of the split ring is not going to change the action of your plug....If your plug is that sensitive to that small weight change you should abandon that and fish something else.

I feel more uncomfortable about fishing with a cut hook eye than I do about a triple split ring opening.
