I got one of these "things" for Christmas - my question is whether the front tie on ring is supposed to spin (it does on the one i received) - seems to me that it should not - just wanted to see if anyone knew before i took it back

Thanks for any help!

Be careful bouncing bigger fish out of the water. The wire will pull out of the head fairly easy.

Or just fail during reeling in a fish over a pound in size.

Great in theory, but junk in reality.

I fish the strike king with the heavier wire and never had a problem and I have boat flipped 5lb+ bass. I used to fish the yum but I always was having to bend the wire back out them they broke.

Can promise, you will not pull out the arms on mine and will hold up a lot better than most that are being mentioned here. More than likely at a lot better price also. Build 3 different types of them to to suit your fishing needs.

Those look pretty slick and you put the split ring on them for storage as well.
