What size swivel do you guys use?
I try to get the biggest swivel, I can. I dont remeber any size numbers.
For trout, I'll use a #14. For the planted catfish, I'll use a #10. For the large fish, I'll use a #3. I've given up on using the ball bearing swivels because I lose the swivels fairly often.
wallmart had 2/0 on sale cheep so 2/0
the biggest cheapest, 1/0 brass swivles most of the time. $1.95 for 25 i think at walmart. sometimes when theres a 75% off ben at gander mountain i pick up the good stuff like saltwater snap swivels and stuff like that because i kno its less likely to fail.
Get good ones. Its a link in the chain ya don't want to fail.
I use Gamakatsu Spro Power Swivels size #2 rated at 230 lbs. You can purchase a pack of 50 swivels through catfish connection for $10.50. That comes out to 21 cents per swivel. Cost a little more than the Wal-mart swivels but well worth it knowing you are using a quality swivel that will perform as designed under a load.
The bigger the better. I use a stainless swivel that I believe Berkley makes they are super strong and have big eyes that are easy to tie to at night.
cheap big ones at walmart
Big cheap ones at walmart, but am considering spro.
I use 1/0-2/0-3/0 swivels. It all depends on which cat I'm fishing for. Like mentioned before this is an important link in the system. Don't go to small.:lol: :big_smile:
I use #3 most of the time.
