I am looking for some extremely strong swivels link clips for boat fishing for large fish. I am currently looking at the Crane and Berkley ranges in size 1 and 1/0, but also considering those used by commercial longliners and ball bearing swivels. They need to be high strength as they will be used for pirk fishing in Norway and tope and Conger fishing in the UK. If anybody has any ideas pr recommendations please post.

Cheers, i just don't want to use anything that could spring open with a good fish on. The Berkley black snap swizels seem ok, so do the Sampo crane snap swivels i will probably go with them then.

It doesn't sound as if you don't need to spend the money on ball bearing swivels, they're mainly to prevent line twist when trolling. You could take a look at these Mcmahon snaps, very strong and they can't spring open;

paired up with a 1/0 or 2/0 heavy duty Crane swivel;

They'll land any conger that swims......
