RedHead Brass Decoy Swivels
I have used this product on all my decoys for the past 15 years, and they have never let me down. I have read other reviews concerning the displeasure with the shininess of the brass, but I can tell you that they turn dark and loose all shine after some use. The great thing about the swivels is that they can be easily transferred with the line and weight to other decoys. For example I have a dozen long lines for deep water situations that I keep handy and use when needed.I simply unsnap the short lines and change them to the long lines. I am glad to see that Bass Pro is the only company I could fine that still carries this quality product.

I would pass
Well I thought this would be a very effective idea. I thought I could carry a few extra tied lines in case I had an issue or a lost weight. But these are a problem.
1) You will have to drill all your decoys holes out to fit them right
2) They are bright shiny brass finish and with most decoys these will stand out big time on a clear day. They should be black
3) They do not pull back somewhat flush against decoy so they protrude and interfere with winding up line.

Heavy Duty Decoy Swivel Snaps
I bought 1 package 6+ years ago and they still look new and haven't failed yet. I just purchased 5 more packages to add to my other decoys. For a while I couldn't find them and BPS brought them back!!!
They work great when attached directly to the decoy by a small lead. Once on you can quickly add any length decoy line to your spread. I run Texas rigs, from 30" lines to 12+ foot lines for deeper water conditions. The snap swivels save me the time of having to cut and re-crimp the lines.
I love them and I hope you will too!!!

I started using this product around 10 years ago for diver strings and I'm still using the same clips. I 've used Avery clips and the don't hold up.I have used these to make my own jerk rigs and they work great. I hunt open water on Lake Erie for divers or marsh back waters down south in flooded timber and they work either way.I would recommend these to anybody.
