We also sell barrel swivels, ball bearing swivels, 3-way swivels and snap swivels. Barrel swivels are the most common, but if you’re looking to put a lot of pressure on your rig, ball bearing swivels are the way to go. Ball bearing swivels can turn easier and much quieter even under heavy loads. A 3-way swivel allows you to connect your lines, hooks and sinkers at different points and different positions. A snap swivel adds the ability to quickly connect and disconnect different rigs to your main line.
If you’re looking for sinkers Anaconda offers a wide selection ranging from bean sinkers, ball sinkers, barrel sinkers, snapper sinkers, split shot sinkers to star sinkers. You can change the type of sinker you’re using depending on the type of bottom you’re fishing, the current of the water and the type of lure you’ll be using.
Float selection is typically based on the prevailing water and weather conditions, as well as the weight of your rig and bait. Wider floats and bobbers will be more stable and are able to carry heavier bait. Thinner floats are easier to move around and better for detecting when light biting fish are taking your bait. Here at Anaconda, we offer floats in different shapes and sizes ranging from ball floats, cigar floats to pencil floats.
