Changing lures

Post by Papatom »

Changing lures to find the color of the day can be frustrating especially with some of snaps on the market today. Some are very hard for me to open and i have to use needle nose plyers to open or shut!!!
I was wondering if any one has found a "easy" or "quick change" type snap that works good for them. Any recommendations out there?????
THANKS

I use "Fastach" type instead of snaps.
Much simpler and easy on the fingers.

I almost always use vmc duo-locks, but this past weekend I ran into a few that I had to pull my needle nose pliers out to open and close. I thought I was losing it, and I know my vision isn't what it used to be, but then I thought maybe it was just a bad run. Your message now has me rethinking it!

No Bill, 11 years sober for me, so any difficulties I had wasn't related to rum, bad or not!!
