So, I had my first experience this morning pigtail swivels.. WOW.. I hated them.. It took me much longer to get them on and off.. I am sure I will get better with them over time... I know most people really like them but, any of you guys ever just not like them and go back to using old school snap swivels?
Yeah, I plan on walking down to boat here soon and get some much needed practice in.. My dad had put them on and I didn't even know they were on there until I went to put out my spread.. Probably not the best time to learn something new..
I grab the line, double it over twist the wrist and the line is on/off.......
So you make a loop in slide them on?
Yes - you make a loop in the line, and then just feed the loop around wire of the pig-tail - think of like you were playing one of those electric buzzer games where you have to guide the loop down the corkscrew on the base - just in this case you can touch the sides
