Kennesaw, GA (December 9, 2021) Many anglers like the efficiency of using a snap to affix their chosen lure to their fishing line. It makes swaps quick and easy and can even enhance the lure’s action by allowing it to affect a wider gait. Others, however, shudder at the idea of even the smallest piece of additional hardware. They want their lures to be natural and free-flowing.
Well, they both are.
It’s all about efficiency, performance and confidence. When choosing whether to use a snap, try to figure out how you can best achieve a combination of those three factors, and you’re well on your way to maximizing your fish-catching success.
Fortunately, for anglers who prefer or otherwise need a snap, SPRO offers a complete selection of tools that won’t break the bank, inhibit your lures or fail unnecessarily. They start with the easy-to-operate Duo Locks in sizes from 0 to 06, rated up to an impressive 240 lbs. of strength. Whether you’re fishing in freshwater or saltwater, using a jig, a crankbait or a topwater, this tool will allow rocket-fast bait swaps while allowing you to remain confident in the integrity of your offerings.
If you need to reduce line twists but still make quick lure changes, the SPRO Power Swivel with Hyper Snap and SPRO Taru Swivel Interlock Snap keeps your line at full strength and your lures behaving properly. The former is offered in sizes 04, 06 and 08, and the latter comes in sizes 12, 10, 7, 5 and 3, all at an inexpensive cost per piece.
All of those traditional joining devices are rock solid and guaranteed to perform, but SPRO never stops innovating in lures and terminal tackle alike. That extends to snap technology as well. We’re very proud of our split snap with its figure-eight design and black nickel finish. They’re corrosion-resistant so that you can use them in fresh and saltwater alike, and they’re easy to operate with a single hand. They come in sizes 1, 2 and 3, rated up to 45 lbs. Similarly, the SPRO Prime Snap also maximizes performance and strength at the same time. It features 90-degree wire ends and a precise egg shape that maintain structural integrity, whether you’re using the smallest size that tests out at 10 pounds or the largest that will withstand an amazing 175 pounds of pressure.
We may never convince the true doubters to utilize snaps or snap swivels to change our lures, hooks and leaders. However, for those who understand that they can improve rather than reduce lure action – without sacrificing any strength – SPRO offers the specialized tools to keep you connected and help you catch more fish.
