:) I have used them both ends, no reason why not. I suppose it's worth the extra expense. :)

All have there own way of doing it me it's swivel top and Gemini genie rig clip at the bottom depending on what rig I'm making.

Hi Chas, You would still need a clip for the lead, if you made it with two swivels. The other advantage say for a flapper rig, is it could be universal and reversed with a snood above the lead or reversed below the lead. Normally clip on bottom swivel on top and for safety 100-150lb B.S.

I find for multi hook rigs or for rigs with a gripper they twist without a swivel at both ends and I now use a BIG swivel at the top or two smaller ones if I'm out of big uns.

For rough stuff I tend to do away with all swivels but you're using one hook and most of the time the weights gone or a fish is on so twisted rigs aren't such an issue

Gemini Genie Link Clip on the top and the same on the bottom to take the lead. My swivel goes on the leader , dead easy to unclip the rig when double patting .

Thanks for responded guys. I have rig on top and clip on bottom but I like the idea of the devil on the end of the leader and clips on both ends of rig.
