Coatesville, PA November 2, 2011 – New solid brass Ball Bearing Swivels and Snap Swivels from American Fishing Wire are engineered to survive the fiercest one-on-one battles. The patented bullet shape provides fluid rotation and decreased water resistance. The unique gun metal black finish minimizes reflections and cloaks the tackle. Swivels have a solid brass body, stainless steel bearings, and welded rings for maximum security and to endure the unforgiving offshore environment. The tournament snaps are tempered and made of solid brass, designed to stay closed and keep connected to the fish. These battle-tested ball bearing swivels in your tackle box are a necessity for a trip to the canyon or out of sight of the shoreline.
