    Default Alternative Swivels

    I am looking for an alternative swivel to the cheap crane swivel. Soon I'll be needing to cast up some underspin jigs (roadrunner type). I see some fellows appear to be using a roller swivel. What brand and size to fit a Do IT mold that requires the #12 crane. Thanks

    Here are the ones I use. I use #10 in my pony head molds for 1/8 and up and #12 for 1/16 and 1/32

    Roller swivels, terminal tackle replacement for ball bearing swivels

    They spin more freely. Almost as good as a ball bearing swivel. Cranes are more prone by design to lock up.
