Drop shot swivel problem

Recommended Posts

Having poured hundreds of drop shot sinkers this winter, I would get an occasional swivel that would not spin. My last order of swivels, (Do It brand from Barlow's) put the failure rate up to 15%. Really made for a long pour session and wasted $$.  They just would not spin. I've used less expensive swivels from Ebay but they seemed slightly smaller. Anyone else noticed an increase in "bad" swivels?

Yes, that is why I quit making them. Rather buy them then be frustrated with the non spinners, all the grip swivels I bought were about the same.

I originally got my swivels from Do-It molds. Never had an issue with them. Now if your package says Do-It Molds on it, call them up (Do-It Molds) and tell them the problem. They are very good at customer service and they will help you re-solve your problem.

Bill,

PM me your info (email and/or order number) and we'll get you taken care of. Our drop shot swivels are sourced from Do-it, so you shouldn't be seeing a failure rate that high.

Just a shout out to Barlow's Tackle. No fault of theirs but they sent me drop shot swivels to replace my bad ones, unsolicited.  Real customer service. Thanks Matt!
