    i was under the impression that for like swivels and stuff that the bigger the size the bigger the item was but i was just at a hardware store and it had size 10 and 12 swivels and the 10's were biggern the 12's, is that the same way with hooks and sinkers too??

    yes a size 4 hook is bigger then a size 6 and with sinkers its just in ounces so 4 ounces is bigger than 3
    now with hooks when you get into ought sizes it goes up like 6/0 is bigger than 4/0
