Hi there to all, I've been reading about crank baits and lures, my main doubts where about lip size lengt, width, and the angle, those are allready covered, but I read someting about hunting lures, and this term (free sliding chain swivel) is not clear to me, to say more I'm not familiar with it, so my question is:
How does a free sliding chain swivel works, and how it is used on the lure?
Better yet , how can I use a slide chain sliding swivel, and how does it go on the lure to make it work?.
hope you can help me out.

Alman, I cannot find any reference to a 'free sliding chain swivel'. Where did you read it? Can you post a link.

yup thats it!! the j plugs, some link took me to their web page and I read it there.
If you use a rubber band does it work? is that the only way to make ir run difrent?(the lure that is).
I imagined some other mecanical thing or a rig of some kind, that changes the position of the linkage and maked a kind of ransom colocation, thus making the lure movement "hunt"
Thanks to all for your reply

It works on most lures preferrably shallow runners, but you have to testrun while rigging .Ít´s often used on Bomber 15A to get an erratic action while trolling for brown trouts &salmons

yes hazmail i´ve tried the tazzie & at times its a good lure for browns etc

My guess is that the elastic flexes varying amounts during retrieval and this moves the effective eye position up and down accordingly, thus changing the action etc. Is this correct?

This setup is used when trolling & the rubberband should be as tight as it can be to hold line at place in up to 2 knots in speed .It changes the action dramatically & when fish strikes it releases from the rubberband & lets you fight the fish with less drag than with the tow eye placed high

Woooo that thing realy moves!!!, I've never tried it, mabe I get my hands on one of those:) or.... make someting similar lol.
In the video its troled at fast speed, does it move the same in spinning or casting reel speeds?.
thanks for the info.

Alman-They have been making these for about 50 years. They have a good casting weight and you do not need a quick retrieve speed, troll at about 4-5 Km/h or faster (you can tell by the rod tip). Because they are all lead and plastic and heavy (and inexpensive) the fish tend to be able head shake and throw them, there is a rig which minimises this, I will try and post it tonight (I'm supposed to be working now). pete

it can be setup in 2 ways .1 for a slow steady roll set the narrow wing upfront 2 for a wider more erratic roll set the wide part infront

The video on their website of that lure's action looks like how I would imagine a baitfish high on crack looks when it swims.
