LOVE these! After finding these, I never have to tie on another individual fly again!
Fly changes are proably TOO easy as I can do it on a whim and my drying patch fills up fast.
The smallest size offered is really, really small. I prefer the medium size which still fits most of my smaller hook sizes. If you fish a lot tiny hook sizes (like the 20's) then you need the smallest size...but I don't so the medium size is just fine.
I have zero problems with these across cold and warm water fishing. They are VERY strong. While bluegill fishing using the fas-snaps I actually had what turned out to be a 5lb largemouth bass attack a bluegill spider. The little fas-snap never gave any indication of problems - and I have used the same one to land dozens and dozens of fish in a given day.
I realize this sort of thing angers the purists...but I'll try to remember to turn my back for the 2 seconds it takes me to change my flies out. lol.

Small FasSnaps great for jigs
I have a hard time tying Palomar knots to connect the parts of my casting and spinning rigs together. I used to use these long ago on Fly Line, now they are on my spinning rigs too.
I already had the largest chrome FasSnaps that I use to connect slip bobber rigs to the line on my spinning rigs.
I got the small black FasSnaps to connect the line in the slip bobber to my panfish jigs and hooks.
What an easy way to change hooks and jigs !
The FasSnap holds the eye of the hook, but easily comes off if I want to change to a larger or smaller hook.
These make changing from a slip bobber to a spoon easy, and also make changing terminal tackle easier. They come in chrome or black.

They work great with flies
I have used these for both lures and flies. They seem to work great for flies and the small size snap will not sink most dry flies. I was using a #16 fly and it did not sink. It sure is faster and easier than retying every time I wanted to change my fly. They also work for most lures but some are tricky to get onto these snaps. I also had a fatigue problem when using these with lures. I had two break at the bend when installing the lure on the snap and I had one break while fighting a fish. None of these snaps was very old and I am assuming that the lures spread the snap farther open than hook eyes and this wears them out faster. I may have been using a size that was too small for the lures I was using but I don't recommend these for use with lures. Despite the problems I had with these while using lures I rated these four stars because I still use these for fly fishing and highly recommend them for that. I have not had any problems with these snaps when using them for fly fishing.

Hard to Find
I began fly fishing recently after many years. I used these snaps back in the day and liked them very much. They are certainly a much more convenient way to change flies, but I couldn't find them at all the usual places. Finally found them at Bass Pro Shops and am glad I did.

I dont have the actual measurements but the "L" is barely large enough for med sized cranks. Not sure (never seen them) but I'd bet the "XL" would be better for big bass baits. Normans give the size but cost more.
I would not do it for trout and trout flies. I would use for bass or saltwater species not too sensitive to additional hardware. Depending on what time of year, especially later in the summer when the flies are getting smaller this is a non starter for trout. Thats why I use flouro leader, 7x tippets, etc depending on how big the fish are where I am fishing. Trout with any pressure are too smart for this.
