Best and Worst snap swivels for beginners

For saltwater use Stainless Steel and rinse them off like you would your lures, rods and reels.

Thanks for your posts lately, WillCFish. Just a quick FYI - you can embed the youtube videos directly into your posts by putting the youtube video number inside youtube tags, as such:

I used to use brass snap swivels exclusively until I straightened a couple of them out on the Potomac, then switched to coast lock snaps connected to a stainless barrel swivel with a stainless split ring. Pulling a parachute rig and catching a 40lb certainly requires a lot heavier terminal tackle than tossing a bobber out in fresh water to catch a 2lb crappie. :fishin:

i have straighted some swivels on big cats & cobia.... i still use the eagle claw cheapies tho....

i have 1000s of every size and brand ... SPRO makes the best inline swivels but other than that i will use the cheapies and loosen my drag a bit

Real scientists should be a visionary; who is not a visionary, who can only refer to themselves as practitioners.
