This weekend, spent a little time going over some gear. While talkin with Martin about our set up for the Apr. fishin trip, we went over some swivel and wind on leader gear.
Martin hasnt fooled too much with it, so I got him started with one 300 lb set up for one of his reels. (300 lb STS custom leader, 300lb Momoi Hi-catch snap lock swivel, thimble and some crimps, etc..)

He wanted some more info, so I pulled up what I had and mailed it to him. Doing so, thought I'd share the links, as i know alot of us are probably doing the same thing to gear up to head back out.

Anyway,, here's some good info and reading.

In my opinion, here's the best swivel/clip you can buy, these things are fantastic and wont break, split or stretch like others I've tried:

Though I do like the Momoi wind on leaders, I also use STS Custom Tackle leaders. They're no nonsense and work great. Built very well and they have probably one of the best prices too for handmade leaders ($9 for single 20-25 ft 300 lb rig's, that's not a bad deal at all for a custom leader)
