 Very Nice
Pros: Small and strong, Improves rig management, Good For Variety Of Fish
Cons: I wear glasses when tying them on.
Comments: I wanted some very small, unobtrusive swivels and these are Perfect! Plenty strong for everything freshwater and small enough, you hardly know they are in the line, except the line isn't twisting like it did.

 These are the ones to get
Pros: Stealthy, Small and strong
Best Uses: Connecting leaders, Steelhead Float Fishing
Comments: 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.

 steelheading with Blackbird swivels
Pros: Small and strong
Comments: I use a furled leader and tie the Blackbird swivel on the tapered end. I save a lot of leader and tippet material doing this.

 the right connection
Pros: Easy To Handle, Good For Variety Of Fish, Strong, Easy To Store

 Great swivels
Pros: Easy To Store, Easy To Handle, Good For Variety Of Fish, Strong
Best Uses: Shore Casting, Fresh Water, Trolling
Comments: steelhead can be picky and are very crazy fighters when hooked. With these swivels helps make ur presentation less noticeable to fish w/o sacrificing the strength bc they are so tiny

 small size, great quality
Pros: Strong
Best Uses: Ice Fishing, Fresh Water
Comments: These swivels are my top choice for river fishing steelhead and salmon, very small but very strong. I have never had one fail, up to 30 lb salmon on 12 lb test line. They are also good for all around trout fishing, or anywhere that you need a low profile swivel.

Breakage Problem
Pros: Easy To Store
Cons: Poor Construction
Comments: Have had problems with breakage. Primarily with snags, but did have one come apart when playing fish. Very small size and hard to handle with cold fingers or with dusk approaching. Too bad they do not market the one size larger.

 micro swivel review
Pros: Stealthy, Good For Variety Of Fish, Strong, Easy To Store
Best Uses: float fishing, Jigging, Ice Fishing, Fresh Water
Comments: 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.

 Excellent little swivels!
Pros: Dont spook fish, Improves rig management
Best Uses: Terminating spreader rigs, Connecting leaders
Comments: 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.
