Every crank that leaves my shop runs a 1.5 oval @  4.8mm from center line to line and KVD short shank trebles. Running #6 on the 1.5 SR and like bodied baits, then #4 on 2.5 etc. and #2 on larger baits. Each hook is attached with an HD Stainless Steel 5mm split ring.

Good baits and if you email him he will answer all your questions. Really good guy. I asked him tons of questions when I started painting crank baits.
I use #6 on the 1.5 and #4 on the 2.5.
