Tiny, strong and effective swivels. They help eliminate any line twist and let bait float and tumble freely in current. Small so they dont catch the eye of those difficult steelies.

Sault Ste. Marie, MI
About Me:
Avid Fisher
I use these swivels when connecting main line to my leader while I am float fishing for salmon/steelhead or whatever. Anyone who fishes steelhead in clear water knows that the stealthy you are the more fish you will catch. These swivels are the smallest I have found and have never once been the cause of a lost fish for me, and that includes some very large salmon. I will never tie a mono to mono knot again as long as these swivels are around.
Pros: Stealthy, Good For Variety Of Fish, Strong, Easy To Store
Cons: none
Best Uses: float fishing, Jigging, Ice Fishing, Fresh Water

About Me:

These tiny swivels are perfect for the top of spreader rigs and for connecting leaders to mainline. They are very small and black, probably go completely unnoticed by fish. I would use a larger swivel for line-twist prevention, these are best used for line terminations and transitions.
Pros: Dont spook fish, Improves rig management
Cons: none
Best Uses: Terminating spreader rigs, Connecting leaders
