I don't use them when useing lures.....only swivel i use is between the mainline and my leader...i just think it holds back the natural swimming of the lure when it's hooked to the eye....and interferes with it....just my 2cents...

I like the quick change aspect and some lures have a better action. I only use Duolock SZ4 or Breakaway Fast Links F11,on a 3ft shock line of 50lb with a 250lb barrel. I check them frequently to see if they have opened or sprung allowing the line/knot or lure to slide out, which was happen to me with fish on just a knot on the end.

Are we talking about breakaway snaps or just the regular ones? Bucktails go strait to line with this guy.

Only use duolok snaps, mainly because I'm constantly changing lures & colors....Some times to match size of bait......Last time i used swivels was with freshwater spinners, as they twist line...Jim

Just a snap... duo lock or cross lock.... swivel only on lures that spin... the less hardware the better.

I have been surf fishing non seriuosly on and off for about 30 years.

My brother has a friend that told me about these fast snaps and they are much better than the standard snaps for fishing plugs. I have read about alot of people recommending them and now see them in all of the tackle shops.

My question is how do you uses these properly. To mee the name just doesn't make sense as it has taken me upwards of 20 minutes to change plugs. Can any one direct me to a video that shows the proper way of using these things.

Last night I got so frustrated that I ended up cutting the snap off and tieing my plug to the leader.

Thanks in Advance!

What size are you using?
I realized the other day that I have already landed five 10 to 15 pounders and two 30s on the same snap. I decided to change the terminal tackle so as not to push the issue.
