bobbin....generally because there liter, imo can fish slack lines better with them, also they look better and there is nothing to bend on them (eg, metal bar)

i fish swinger when im fishing longer out with backleads(tight lines), or if im margin fishing or close in bobins as they show more movement and can see more. Just depends on what type of situation.

Nash slapheads for bobbins and fox euro swingers or mk2

ahhh, those were the days[;)] had solar monkey climbers and knitting needles as couldn't afford the proper ones. greatest innovation of the late 70's and better than the old washing up bottle lids we used before them[:T]
