3 way swivels

Land based fishing gear is more than just rods and reels. Discuss the tricks of the trade with your kit.

Most Ebay ones tend to the suspect end of the trade in terms of quality.

Sometimes they are effectively identical to the good ones, but the hardening process might have gone a bit wrong, or not been done at all... I have a bargain set here right now that fracture without warning either from faulty tooling or incorrect heat treatment.

I have some crane type triples available to me through the dealer network, I will get a price on lots of 100 if you wish?

Cheers

Oh, and what size/rating are you after?

Thanks Davros,

The bigger the better, the 1/0-2/0 combination are ok but slightly larger would be even better, please let me know how much if you can get a bulk lot.

Cheers

Just a quick query got me a retail price of 85c each for bulk - I think a day or two and my contacts will find good quality for better than that. Terminal tackle, always go for quality first, as cheap means lost fish and rigs... :x

I will get back later this week,

Cheers.

Haven't logged in for a while and just saw this post and remembered that when I'd previously hunted around for this type of swivel I'd noted this online seller :-

Escapin Tackle (www.escapin.com.au)

Just had a quick look and found some bulk packs in a few sizes,for example ...

I never actually bought any so can't comment on the quality.
Hope this helps someone.
