Using beetlespin or betts spin is it worthwhile including a small swivel before the lure, or does the weighted SP act as a keel, and stop the risk of line twist?

Whilst i haven't used them personally (bought some but not game to try them at $3.50 each!!) I have seen them used extensively on the Wild River Bass DVD (Top DVD of central coast 50cm+ wild river bass caught from coleman journey canoes). The guys there primarily use bettlespins and medium sized plastics (a tube shaped one with a number of stringy bits behind) in appleseed colour. They do not mention the use of a swivel anywhere nor is it used and the underwater footage doesn't show any twisting.

Sorry but thats the best i can do not haveing used them yet. Will give them a go on Sunday as i am going for an EP bash and could let you know.

No swivel required, Dodge.

A very easy lure to use just tie it on your leader.

I agree with mac-fish, just tie straight onto your leader.
