Default Snap swivel vs Coastlock snaps

Anyone have an opinion on this one and where one is better than the other? I don't know if the Coastlocks are known as something else so I attached an image.

My thoughts are many guys will tie lures, plugs, and soft baits straight to the leader bc it will allow the natural movement of the plug do its job. I have also switched to the snap swivel for my soft baits and saw a drastic drop in production with them. Was I just striking out or does it matter.

Thanks

Default Re: Snap swivel vs Coastlock snaps

They both tend to open up but i do use the costlocks if i need to change a lot of lures untill i find what works but no snap swivels,ever! One thing i do is close up a bit the wire that locks it in so it's harder to open up on me but not using them is the safest way to go! Don't think it affects the action on most plugs and def not on plastics.

I like to use Breakaway style clips. No snaps to open and Tactical anglers has one out now that is non slip and extremely durable.

Yup, Breakaway here too

Recent convert from modified Duolocks (do a search using my name for that thread) and I'm now a huge believer in the Breakaways.

You are wise my son

Out of 1 Yeti surveyed they all agreed. Breakaway clips catch the cows and even the smaller 40 inchers

Breakaway it is. I read that you can not use these on Buck-tails, just tie them direct with a loop, if you dont have the time to tie direct anyone have another suggestion?

this is a link to a thread about tying braid and the snap question came into it. https://www.stripers247.com/phpBB2/sh...ock#post127466

With certain plugs(some poppers) I have installed a snap ring to attach the clip to. Not sure about bucktails through
