Default Quality Barrel Swivels

Who makes good barrel swivels? Just refining my slow death rigs.

Hello: Don't sacrifice money on cheap Chinese junk. Go with the best, Sampo. I've never regretted spending the extra money on sampo. Just my opinion. O - R

I have no idea where they are made, but I've had no problems with the ball bearing swivels sold by Cabelas.

Default Cabelas

I hope Cabelas are good. I just ordered a bunch but the 3 reviews on the website are less than flattering. I've never had an issue with any of their stuff to date.

While I don't know if they are as good as Sampo I think the SPRO swivels are of good quality. Also quite a bit more than the China stuff but well worth it IMO.

I have used SPRO swivels for years in many different situations and would not use anything else. Wasted too much money, lost many fish and tackle in the past using the less expensive swivels.

Hello: Ive also had good luck with spro and some of Cabelas higher quality line of swivels. But I have always had good luck with Sampo. I know some fishermen just can't afford spending the extra money on the sampo swivels and the spro's and Cabelas should work good. Good Luck And have a great season this year. O - R

I agree that cheap is not worth it in this area, use Spro or Sampo's!
