IMHO.. friends don't let friends use split rings and snap swivels.

Here's what I use:

Welded ring ball bearing swivel with a stainless steel McRosco clip. These will not break. I have 100% confidence that they will hold up under any circumstances encountered with a delta dino!

The SPRO 100 pound bearing snap swivels are plenty strong for any fish in our system.

I agree with Suisun Luke, the spros are the only ones I use for sturgeon, a bit pricey but there real strong.

hey pike life, i think the only one i can see is that it makes it eaisier to change or quicker to change your leader if it were to break. I myself dont use, but i also make my own leaders instead of buying them at 2 or 3 dollars a pop, pluss i can make at whatever length i think i may need. Personally i dont care for the snap, i think it is one more thing to break! i know just get a bettter one,... more money :P

One advantage of a snap is that you can have an extra hook and leader to bait before you reel your line in to change the bait. *Once you reel it in, it's fast to just swap out the hook with the new baited hook and cast out again so you loose less wet time. If you use the correct snap for what you're fishing for, generally your line is going to fail before the snaps.
