I am planning to restock my rigging box and would like to know.
Who makes the best snap swivels? Why they are the best?

Currently I have Hi Catch Rotary Snaps and Sampo ball bearing snaps.

The spros are nice as well. They are tiny. I have used them inshore to connect flouro to braid in order to prevent twists while working plastics for reds and trout. Although, I have not used anything heavy.

For trolling or super heavy applications: Sampo

Ball bearing swivels with a range on snap options. Never had one fail (knock on wood).

Spros are great for line to leader connections on light tackle or when you need a subtle presentation.

Sampo for snap swivel. I have some that are about 20 yrs old still new unused. Oshmans had a close out where they were about 20 cents on the dollar.
$40's got me a grocery sack full of quality snap swivels.
In that time none has ever failed.
I also try to use the SPRO wind on barrel exclusively for short leader connections.
I don't wind them on but like the strength to size, weight and Dia.
haven't found them discounted yet so my current supply is most likely
around $100.
Some times Bottom feeders even go hungry.
