Bass Pro Shops Ball Bearing Swivel with Split Ring
I had read some bad reviews on this product before I purchased them. Personally I have had no problems with them at all. They said they wouldn't spin. Mine spin fine, regardless of the direction I rig them. Makes me wonder if someone wasn't a little heavy handed with their rigging

Buy Sampo instead.
I'm usually happy with Bass Pro brand products, but this one stinks. Only 1 out of 5 in the pack swiveled fairly well, and the other 4 hardly swiveled at all...in fact, a couple of them didn't swivel at all. Sorry to say I threw those away. Completely useless, so I hope I just got a pack of lemons.

I picked up two (5) packs of these swivels for some spinnerbaits I was building, and only TWO of the 10 swivels spin freely.
They were a little less than half the price of Sampo swivels, which makes sense since less than half of them actually work.
Complete and utter garbage.

I go through some serious terminal tackle catfishing here in iowa and these barrel swivels hold up well. I use 50lb braided powerpro and have got in some bad snags but I'd have to cut my line before these break. good product.
Also- make sure you use a polymer knot! I hate hearing stories of losing monster fish because someone was too lazy to tie a good knot!
