Does anyone still use a swivel instead of pully bead if so what swivel do you use ?

Only use trident tackle pulley now, you dont 'need' his other bits but the pulley works really well and adds a tiny bit of resistance that's seen me turn more bites into fish than with a swivel.
Also cheaper than some heavy swivels.

I would not use a swivel for a pulley rig. Found the same as jackjock would cut through with any sort of power cast. Have not tried the trident pulley as yet so cannot comment on it.

I use a swivel most of the time, a stainless/brass size 2, I think they are.
Using Asso classic for rig body in 100lb (1mm) I've never had a problem.

I use Gemini pulley swivels. Never had a problem. Not used any other so can comment on Breakaway or Trident. Give them all ago, cheap enough, and stick with your fave.

Thread 1 inch piece of hollow catapult elastic through eye of swivel for added peace of mind, elastic should be slightly larger diameter than swivel eye so once threaded it expands trapping swivel in place,
