Also available with a barrel swivel.
Ball-bearing vs barrel swivels, why choose a ball-bearing?
A small but vital part of your terminal-tackle. Both swivels cover most all your fishing needs. Barrel swivels are popular due to their wide range of sizes and affordability. Their biggest disadvantages are the increased inability to turn with a heavy load and a shorter lifespan due to the metal on metal friction.
Conversely, a good quality ball-bearing swivel will keep rotating and keep your line twist-free even under a heavy load. They do cost more, but for certain types of fishing, like offshore trolling, you can’t afford to not use them.
