The way i look at it is your swivel is next to your big weight, so why not go big and reduce the risk loosing a fish bc of a weak swivel.

The reason for the bigger swivels is the thickness of the metal loop. The bigger the better because when you tie larger leader on smaller swivels it will cut from being bent too tight around the loop.

I also like the bigger ones so they don't get slammed down into the sinker hole.

Makes sense. Thanks guys for all the help its been very much appreciated. I believe since the regulars that usually go with tear guys and grouper fish in the last three years I've seen catch one grouper...... I'm going to chicken rig it some and then switch to grouper fishing cuz I don't want to get skunked and come home with nothing to grill! But I do want to try n catch a grouper or maybe fish the mid depth range and see if I can find an aj
