    yeah the loose end - makes a stubby end that prevent the knot from sliding thought too easily...

    Exactly the burned end swells up a bit and therefore cannot be pulled back through the knot.

    If I use a swivel, its usually for trolling. I have found that they mess up the action of the lures I'm usually trolling. I usually use crank baits and swim baits so now, if I do use one, I put it at least 3 feet about the lure.

    I havent used them much, with the exeption of crankbaits im going to be sparing when using them unless im trolling or spot casting and need to change it up constantly if im in a hurry to get some fish !!
