One of the main principles of the spinner rig, as the name suggests, is that the hook is free to spin round and take a hold in the mouth of the carp. The more freely that it spins, the better the chances of getting a hookhold, and this is exactly what the PTFE Spinner Ring Swivel achieves. This size 11 swivel is designed specifically for us with this rig and can be used with various hook link materials as the ring does away with the need for a connecting loop, and just like our standard version, the hook can easily be added or removed from the ‘crook’ at the other end, which is then covered with a Kicker to keep everything securely in place. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) has one of the lowest friction coefficients of any solid material, which makes it perfect for coating swivels as it reduces any friction between the barrel and the eye. They are sold in packs of eight.
