Yeah, if you don't rinse those things regularly they will bind up on you. Every season 2 out of 3 work well for me but that 3rd one is always binding up, even though I rinse it.

or just learn to do whatever it is that you do to put the twist in your lines the other way!Flight Time wrote:I think any line swivel is of little value anyway because they won't spin with any tension on the lines. The lines will twist before the swivel moves, no matter how nice the swivel. Better to have it on the loop so you can deal directly with the inevitable twists.
