I've been using some cheap ball bearing fishing swivels for my spinning stuff... they are #2's and rated at 70#'s...

Since I've been building some bigger things, I figired that I should get some REAL ball bearing swivels...

So I ordered up a few from Gomberg...


The 70# is at the bottom, the 300# is on top..

Now THAT'S a swivel!

:shock: Dude, that thing is HUGE!

Hey Al, do you have a pic of the swivel you use for the Barrel?
It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.
