Snaps & Swivels

One of the awkward habits of swivels is the lack of a common measurement. Yes, it may say, size 9, but what does that mean? What would really be helpful is knowing what the tensile strength is before the snap pops open or breaks, as the line is only as strong as all the components along it. On rare occasions, I have seen weights, such as 30lb or 40lb, but it is the exception. Also, the stronger ones are relatively heavy, in that they will affect the presentation of the lure - that is, drag the nose down, rather than let it sit in a balanced, neutral way.
