Spro Ball Bearing Barrel Swivels

8 posts in this topic

I know some of us are still fishing this year but I am also gearing up for next year. I am going to get the stuff for Carolina rigging and someone told me Spro had the best barrel swivels. Yeah they probably do but for $7.29 for 3 they better be. My question is are they really worth that or is there something else that is the best bang for my buck?

I agree w/Bass Whacker, had the same problem. Had several open up and straighten out on me. Spendier is not always better, especially in this case.

I actually like the Cabelas brand ball-bearing swivels quite a bit. If you get the swivel/snap combos they come with the duo-lock snap which I also think is the best option when it comes to snaps.

I use Cabela's, Spro (cheap at Fleet Farm) and Sampo swivels and snap swivels. I don't sue snap swivels for C-rigging because they tend to catch too much grass so I just go with small swivel.

I just stick with Berkley and Sampo. Never had a problem and they've been doing it the longest.

I use the cheaper Spro barrel swivels. I've used the Berkley barrel ones and they straigthen out on me. I would only use a ball bearing swivel when there's no rocks or timber, being the swivel is the most expensive part getting lost.

I use the spros - they went up that much? I think I use the 80lb test. I like that when using a fluke. The weight of the swivel gets it down then I have a floro leader (12-14")
