Look at the breaking strains quoted for swivels. At the end of the leader or at the top of your rig, you need swivel that same as, or preferably 50% stronger than, the rig body. For hook snoods, you can use swivels as small as 40 lbs breaking strain for light traces, or stronger as required.

Thanks for this thread... Just one question of my own if I may ?

What does the breaking strain of the swivel have in relation to the breaking strain of the snood (and or) main line ?

I.E... For shockleader and lead weight the standard is to multiply the weight of of the lead by 10 to equal the weight of the shockleader breaking strain required

Cheers

As far as I am aware, the breaking strain of a swivel is the strain that would be required to break it in a straight-line pull. Other factors such as corrosion or mechanical damage can also affect a swivel. So make sure it is stronger than the line attached to it.

My best advice for tying rigs is to buy some then copy them, they give you the right length for snoods and main trace body to avoid tangles.
I just got a hold of some Moonfleet rigs. All I can say is they are awesome. I wish these rigs where out when I first starting tying rigs. amazing piece of kit
