Slingshot does sell a replacement swivel. All so you can look at one of the other brands that use the same style swivel like Wainman they might be cheaper.

+1 for the Wainman swivel. I replaced the swivels on my Naish Bars (which look similar to the Slingshot ones and are crap) with that one. Does not get stuck even with fine sand.

The Mutiny swivel cannot flag to a frontline like the naish slingshot & liquid force... If you run a fifth line through the centre - then yes, it works awesome...

The new Switch swivel flags to a single frontline as well, and works good too. It's not available as a spare part yet I think.. but shouldn't cost that much...
