Swivel: Frequently asked questions

What types of Swivel are there and what determines a good product?

There are two types of swivels, the first is a fixed swivel and the second is a rotating one. The difference between them lies in how they rotate; with a fixed swivel you can only turn it to either side while on a rotating one you can spin it 360 degrees around its axis.

The most important factor is the quality of material used. A good swivel should be made from a strong metal that will not break easily and has been properly heat treated to make it as hard as possible without making it brittle. Other factors include its size, weight, shape and finish (polish). In general terms, you get what you pay for.

Who should use a Swivel?

Anyone who has a hard time getting in and out of their vehicle. The Swivel makes it easier to get into the car, especially for seniors or people with disabilities. It also helps drivers avoid hitting other cars when they are backing up.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Swivel?

The most important factor is your budget. Go for the best Swivel that you can afford. At the same time, consider the material and assembly quality of a Swivel as they also have an impact on its performance. Other factors that might influence your decision are whether or not you need additional features such as multiple pockets and compartments for storing items like pens, phones, keys etc..

Make sure you check the delivery estimates of a Swivel before buying it. Also, make sure there are no hidden charges in the fine print and that your Swivel is eligible for returns (if necessary) when comparing to other brands or models.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Swivel?


A swivel allows the user to move freely without having to worry about tangling or twisting. It also helps prevent damage from occurring when a cord is pulled on too hard, as it will simply rotate instead of pulling taut and potentially causing breakage.


The main disadvantage of a swivel is that it can be difficult to keep the line from twisting. This means you have to spend more time untwisting your line before casting, and sometimes even while fishing. Another problem with this type of reel is that they are not as smooth or effortless when reeling in fish compared to other types of reels such as baitcasters.
