connecting copper to mono or braid.

Lately I worry a lot about loosing a fish along with 450 feet of copper because of poor choice in connecting the backing to the copper.

I wonder what you all use and what you think about ball bearing swivels with a haywire twist covered with electric heat shrink cover.

Thank you,Cornelis.

Swivel / Haywire twist connections last a lot longer. Not really that hard to tie. My vote is for the haywire and swivel connection. Make sure you go with the Spro heavy duty swivels.

Use a small Spro swivel between the copper and the backing and then another between the copper and leader.

Where can you get these and what does the haywire twist look like?

Go to the Atommik site. He has them there.
