Hey Wobbling wings, if you want to try the 3 inch clips send me your address. I screwed up and got a 50 pk, a buddy took a dozen but you can have the rest, email me. kbronzguppy2(@)gmail(dot)com
Yes the 5 inch 120s are the way to go but these are the right price for ya. Good luck, Kevin

I was looking for those clips as well. For those of us so far in the south that we only wear a thin pair of gloves just for concealment, would the 3in be fine?

PM sent www
The 3 inch to me are small and I would rather use the 5s. I have fat fingers and knuckles that don't like to move when they get wet. I got them cheap through catch all tackle, the fives are cheapest through doctari or Memphis net. You need to look around as the shipping at some places will take an inexpensive one and make it expensive.

just be carefull...and try and learn a little before you purchase...because it just isnt as simple as buying a long line clip...there are so many styles...some are better than others!!

take a look:

http://commercialfishingsupplies.com/in ... age=snaps#

generally under $1 each is a good price...once in a while you can get them discounted at .50-.75 cents each....

if you use th clips on small line, you will want the 0 gap clip.....if you have soem large dia line...like .250: dia...then you will certainly want the 6 mm opening clip...and you want swivels!!

good luck
