Norman Lures Speed Clips
I could NOT go on the water without these clips!
I am admittedly a bait changer. I take 8 rods when
I fish, and still run through my arsenal of lures!
These speed clips compare to nothing else on the market. They are easy to change (and I'm 78) as long as I first dry my fingers on one hand.
I will throw buzzbaits, traps, soft plastics, spinnerbaits------------BUT, I'm out (to date) about $100 on spinnerbaits that worked their way off of the loop and into the water. Normally, a fish does not throw a bait at the clip, nor do they break or bend it.

Tying lures takes valuable time and adds risk to line failure if not done correctly. Line glue helps but adds even more time to the process. These speed clips are great, easy to use and provide maximum confidence against terminal tackle failure. Fastest change of lures ever. One down side is the potential line twist created by certain lures. I personally order small black ballbearing swivel clips and switch out the clasp with the Norman's speed clip and now have the best of both worlds. No more line twist and very fast lure transition.

A lot of pros don't use them because don't want anything between the fish and line but the lure. They say that it's just something else between them and the fish that can go wrong. I don't have any problems with the speed clip. I throw Strike Series 3 crankbaits in three colors, instead of carring three differant rods, or retieing when the water color changes, I simply pinch the Speed Clip, take one color off and put another on. I use 12lb fluorocarbon line and have landed 12lb Stripers with no problems.

great little tool
I've been using this product since they were first introduced. They last for years before the clip end gets out of round. They work just as well with braid as with mono. Be sure to remove the line clip from your bait before using this. They're a little hard to use when your hands are cold but otherwise they make changing crankbaits a snap and they don't gather moss and scum like some of the others do. Great product...can't go wrong with this one.
