The new AFW Ball Bearing Snap Swivels.

American Fishing Wire says the launch of its own brand of swivels is in direct response to demands from its customers.

The new AFW solid brass Ball Bearing Swivels and Snap Swivels are ‘an exciting addition’ to the company’s product selection, says AFW Sales Director Steven Miller, who adds: “We’ve had a high demand from our customers to offer our own AFW brand Ball Bearing Swivels and Snap Swivels. Our products are known for high quality and anglers wanted these components to meet our high quality standards.”

AFW is famed for its large selection of wire line and leader products. All its wire, strand and cable are manufactured in the United States.

The new Ball Bearing Swivels and Snap Swivels are engineered to survive the fiercest one-on-one battles, says AFW. They feature a patented bullet shape, which provides fluid rotation and decreased water resistance. A unique gun metal black finish minimises reflection and cloaks the tackle.

The swivels have a solid brass body, stainless steel bearings and welded rings for maximum security and to endure the harshest offshore environments. The tournament snaps are tempered and made of solid brass. They are designed to stay closed and keep connected to the fish.

Professional tournament angler Chris Blanton has been among the first to use AFW Ball Bearing Swivels and Snap Swivels. He said: “For every heavy duty application these are all I use. They are especially good for all my big game gear for marlin.

“AFW offers me the assurance I want and need when tournament fishing.”

The swivels are available in sizes 2-10 with pound strengths from 65lbs to 660lbs respectively. For more details and international sales opportunities contact Marketing Coordinator Yvette Rodriguez direct or use the contact details below.
