Got to use a small swivel to keep the twists away. The swivel next to the dime is the smallest usually found in stores. The one I use is below it.

Only goes up to 10# or so I think, but for L/UL, appears so far to be the cat's anus.

Any decent tackle shop should carry small swivels, SPRO ball bearing swivels are nice if you aren't prone to hanging up gear and breaking it off.


Donald Trump wasn't elected president in spite of who he is and how he acts, he was elected precisely because of who is and how he acts. Remember that.

The only place I have been able to find a #0 ball bearing swivel is Bass Pro Shops. Others carry down to #1, but a #0 enough smaller to make a difference with light tackle. If line twist is a problem, only a ball bearing swivel will help stop that. The Crane style will not. They may work for a little while, but will not come close to a ball bearing swivel for performance. The new 100% floro Pline is good stuff....

Those swivels are Garcia - the former company, and were mfg. in Germany, not sure who might mfg. a similar product now.

I tried the Pline CX (copolymer and made for low memory/spinning) this a.m. - my first use of a Flouro/copolymer - and it def is a big improvement in sensitivity and getting a light lure down, less stretch, etc and it cast very well.

That said, I heard on another site guys recommending:

Vicious Ultimate

P-line Original

P-line Cx 8# but the guys is wanting to try YoZuri hybrid 6#

If I did not have any mono, not sure I'd buy any now that I have tried the P-line CX this am, I may be a convert wink

FWIW, for ultralight spinning I have tried almost all types of line and keep coming back to tried and true mono. I found that flouro doesn't cast as well and with braid I still use a mono leader, to much hassle for me. The only real downside to mono for me is its memory and needing to change it fairly often.
