I've gone back to metal bait screws. So quick and easy and can't recall one coming off.

That is a good idea but with my eyesight it would take me 5 minutes to get the bloody hookbead back on

I always put foam around it anyway unless dropping it on a fish's nose. Doesn't move at all. Only time I have had the bead move is after playing a fish!

If you can wiggle the swivel over the hook bead
is there no nagging doubt it might come off giving it the big un ?
Is it the soft nature of the beads that enables you todo this ?
Just asking as yet to try it !
Some of the the other beads being more rigid ?

I agree that's a decent idea. quicker, and easier to do when you have the just-landed-a-biggun shakes too.

Each to their own but that seems a bit extreme. Saves 20 seconds max to tie on a bait?!

Not in the dark it doesn't. Takes me less than 20 seconds to change from one bait to a completely different bait without having to faff around looking for lighter, needles, floss, etc. Even in the day time I can reel the rod in, take fresh bait out of pocket, take old swivel & bait off, put new bait back on & back out again without even thinking about it. Even better when stalking & don't want to be moving backwards & forwards to rebait etc. Try it and see before knocking it.

Why would you remove the swivel to replace the bait ?
Donít you tie it on ?


I have multiple baits already mounted on swivels including fake corn etc ready to simply slip over the hookbead should I want to change bait, but not the rig. Saves a lot of time. One of the best tips that I was given by Steve Fantauzzi when he was at Thinking Anglers & before everyone was blobbing baits (used amnesia or fluorocarbon instead of floss)

They will move

Going through the side instead of the holes they don't & can still pass the hook ring swivel over them to change bait without having to take the hook bead off
