Spey Swivel?

Recommended Posts

I'm just in the process of putting together my first Spey setup and have seen some "Spey swivels" online that attach between the head and running line to help prevent twist.  Does anyone actually use these? and are they actually necessary?  I've got an Airflo Skagit Compact head and Airflo Super Dri running line if that makes a difference.  Thanks for any insight.

I’ve never had any twist to the point where I’d be annoyed enough to wonder if there was a fix for it or if I was just doing something wrong....

Thanks guys.  I wasn't too crazy about running a swivel through my guides so I'll give it a pass if it's not necessary.

A swivel is not needed , your line will be fine.  Enjoy the two handed casting. 

 

Safe travels .

I tried the Rio swivels and I would not recommend them. They do stop the twisting, but I had one break and I almost lost my shooting head and tip.
