Which guides can handle winding on offshore swivels and small spro's? Which will not?
I agree, I no longer use spro either.I really didn't have trouble with the swivel itself except breaking some spro swivels in half, then I switched over to a traditional ringed swivel and had no more trouble. Good luck, Jerry.
You can tie knots just as strong. Main line to leader is not hard. Making double line is not that hard either.Rings are always an option, but you do run the risk of cracking one of those fragile ceramic rings. That's one big reason to NOT use swivels for wind-ons. You can make a wind-on w/o using swivels.
