I have 25 of the presidentials and use them for guiding trout. That is a great price!

I feel better after reading this. I own less gear than a fishing guide. A little less gear so I feel a little better.

If you are getting too much twist on your spinning rigs it is likely your casting.  You are snapping it too hard and causing your bait to spin too much in the air.  Step down one line size and/or have someone punch you in the arm so you can't cast so hard.  All that extra casting effort is doing more harm than good.

When you have a good length of line out (more than 10-15 ft.) a swievel, regardless of how expensive it is, really doesn't help that much.  The twist spreads up the line and simply doesn't have enough torque to spin a swievel.   By the time it has twisted enough to spin a swievel you're already screwed.

The only time I've ever seen a swievel do it's job is on limb lines and trot lines, or maybe when trolling.  And of course....on a Spinnerbait.
