Make sure to check the gap when changing lures
I used the XL size and was really impressed with how fast I could change lures. They had no ill effects on the action of spinners and crank baits.
The downside is the clip will loosen over time, you need to squeeze them together from time to time. I learned this after casting my favorite spinner and loosing it deep in the lake.
I have gone back to tying lures after this episode. So, if you choose to use these, take a look at the gap of the clip from time to time especially after changing lures from a heavy eyelet to a thin spinner bait wire.

If you use a jig pole or a cork and jig on ultralite don't leave home without fas-snaps (medium)...without fas-snaps your tube jig does not hang hang horizontially (to me naturally)...otherwise your jig hangs at an angle with the head up...plus changing colors is much faster...when I first started using a jig pole (fly rod) in the late 70s, I had to cut a lot of didos with my jig...when I discovered fas-snaps it changed my whole approach, now there was very little movement on my part...mostly just hold the jig steady...

nice product, but buy it somewhere else
i like to use these snaps for ice fishing. it saves my fingers from freezing while trying to tie a knot and makes it easier to change your presentation very quickly. the small size is very small and can barely be seen by the fish. it also does not restrict the jigs action. the worst thing about this product is the price. $11 for i believe 24 snaps? that's waaay too much for me. i went to my local bait shop and got a 6 pack for $0.79. so it's a good product, just buy it somewhere else to save some cash.

Large is the appropriate size for most bass fishing lures. Medium for flies. Can't use with wire baits (spinnerbaits, buzzbaits). Need to squeeze it closed for inline spinners. Every once in a while, a lure will fly off into oblivion so think twice about using with Lucky-Craft, Megabass, etc. Usually not a problem if you watch to make sure the bend doesn't open too much.
