Bass Pro Shops Crane Swivel with Fast-Lock Snap
Crane Swivel with Fast-Lock Snap
I have been using this type of snap swivel in the smallest size possible for some time. This one has a snap that is faster and easier than some of the previous ones to open and hook closed again. It has been reliable since it has never come open when it should not have.
I use it for a quick change of lures so that I do not have to tie on every one of them. The swivel helps to greatly reduce line twist caused by an in-line spinner or by the normal operation of any spinning type of reel. The ball bearing type is much better at reducing line twist but is heavier and affects the action of the lure that it is connected to. This crane swivel is much lighter than the ball bearing swivel so the smallest sized one has little to no effect on lure action.
This smallest Fast-Lock Snap Swivel is small enough to fit through the line guides of my medium light fishing rods. It is strong enough to handle the larger fish that are caught with my medium heavy fishing rods. I use it with both spinning and baitcasting rods and reels on every type of lure or bait that I fish with. That includes spinners, plugs, jigs and swim baits.

fast lock is more reliable than interlock, get you a size 7 and you are set.

These are quality snaps that can really take a beating. They keep the line from twisting and are easy to attach to the lure. At this price, you can't go wrong.

SO CONVENIENT WHEN I SWITCH LURES UP.
I LIKE THESE BETTER THAN THE INTERLOCK SNAPS. THEY ARE SIMPLE AND STRONG.
