    Anybody use these swivels? I just bought a bunch of them in 100-lb test, was wondering if they are any good?

    I have used snap swivels for situations usually while fishing in current.

    I always used heavy cross lock type swivels and constantly worried about the extra knots involved in the rig.

    These swivels can become necessary to maintain a leader to give bait room to move or to quickly change terminal tackle as conditions dictate.

    I always try to keep my rigging as simple as possible and if I doubt it's strength, I go heavier. This stems from experience losing trophy fish ;)

    I bought a ton of them from gofishin.com I think they are 150 lb test though. They were .29 for a pack of 4 I like them. When I caught the 30 pounder the other week, the swivel held up just fine!

    They are just the barrel part though not with the snap! :)
