steelheading with Blackbird swivels
by fishmonger -
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.
virtually undetectable to fish

Great swivels for attaching small diameter carbon lines!
Broke on snag...
by Trout Bum -
Had swivel break on a snag.(12lb main line didn't break). Swivel broke at the barrel. Could just have been the a bad one, who knows?
micro swivel review
by Chromechaser -
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.
GREAT; tiny , strong, swivels

Great little swivels for attaching a leader to your main line. So small, and nothing shiny to spook steelhead and trout.
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.

Great swivel for float fishing.
good quality swivel
by Dave -
this is a good quality swivel and I have yet to find an imperfect one.
No more line twist and wasted time.
by Chrome Seeker -
A must for float fishing at the main line to leader and at the tippet as well. Eliminates line twist . Strong like Bull
Small but strong
by Fry Guy -
This is a good strong product. I use them mostly for steelhead and they work perfectly for me! I will typically pull in 4 to 8 pound fish and have yet to loose my swivel.
These are THE swivel for float fishing!

perfect for steelhead
by fishhooker -
only flaw is they are hard to handle being so small but thats the point i guess. small delicate presentations.
small size, great quality
by Mike -
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.

Gets it done
by Lundrunner -
I got these because they seemed to be good quality. Haven't had a bit of problem with them and they do what they're supposed to.
These swivels can handle Steelhead!
by Troutcraze -
I use these swivels at the end of my base leaders and tie the tippet to it. Keeps the twist out and makes tippet changes easier. They are really super strong for their tiny size.
by Grady Traver -
Good swivels, have not had one fail. Low visibility.

Great tiny swivels for clearer water fishing!
