Bass Pro Shops Crane Swivels
Basic crane swivel, they work. I use them for Carolina rigs and to connect to Norman Speed Clips to eliminate line twist. Never had one break, never lost a fish due to one failing. At my local BPS store there wasn't much of a choice as far as brands that the website has so I just went with BPS brand.

Great for Dropshotting
Instead of learning a new knot, I use a Crane Swivel to join Power Pro 15 lb braid to XPS 6 lb FC leader. I tie the swivel to the braid with a Palomar, tie the leader to the swivel with a Trilene, and tie the hook to the leader with another Palomar. No problems with breakage. Note that the breaking strength of a #12 Crane Swivel is about double that of a #12 Barrel Swivel. Total leader length is about 2/3 the 7' length of the rod, and I do an underhand pitch cast.

Great product and Great price
I am very pleased with this swivel. I chose the #12 and don't let the small size fool you, it'll hold up to a big load. I use it to connect my 10 lb main line braid to 12 lb fluoro leader. It's so light you'll forget that there's a swivel on your line.

Crane Swivels are great!
The Bass Pro Crane swivels are very versatile. I use the size 5 on my Quickfish, to extend the hooks for salmon fishing. I use the size 7 and 5 for side drifting, drop shotting, and live bait fishing. These swivels are strong, dependable, and a bargain. Give em a try!!!
