One of our core objectives as a Company is to focus entirely on top of the line products that the professionals use so that you can be certain of the quality of product you are purchasing. These swivels fit the bill perfectly.
Testimonial from our Pro Staff lead Capt. Chris Donato out of Kona, Hawaii:
"Conventional Snap swivels to me have always been a bit scary, although failures are unlikely there is always the possibility of it. Before the Opi swivels I used to floss my conventional swivels so they could not open by accident or if landed on by a jumping fish or any other kind of mishap. This flossing will keep them from opening but requires you get a bait knife or good set of cutters to snip the floss each time you want to open the swivel, time consuming and a pain in the ass, basically defeating the purpose of the snap swivel.
However with the OPI swivel I was able to use a snap without having to worry about flossing them, which saved me time and boosted confidence in my tackle. What you will notice immediately is that they are a tighter hold and the snap arm actually wraps around creating a nearly perfect hold that could not be opened unless excessive force was applied in a pinching motion.
When they go together they create an almost clicking sound when in place, and you can feel confident it’s being held tight. It is also flush and compact, meaning you won’t get gloves or your clothes caught on the swivel arm end. This also lessens the bubble trail impact compared to a conventional bulky snap if in fact they do hit the water.
I’ve been using these exclusively for a while and I would say 90% of the top boats in Kona use them because of how reliable they are, and I have yet to hear of any failures at all with this design. As of today they are the best snap on the market."
