Trying my hand at making some rigs and using the AFW SurfStrand Bare 1x7 SS trolling wire, what is a good knot to end it at my swivel? Or should I just crimp it?
It 'snelled" good at the hooks, can't figure out what to use at the swivel. Thanks in advance. Stew

That's cool... just didn't seem to "tighten up" real tight. How long you leaving your tag end?

Dosen't have to be too tight-it will hold.

Tie it where your tag end lays flat against your wire, and you can leave 1/4 inch or so without it snagging your line.
Good Luck

The figure eight but I crimp the tag end and have not had a problem. This gets the problem of stabs from the tag end out of the way.
