About Game Snaps
Sudden opportunities often arise to catch a fish on a lure other than the one attached. Unfortunately, it may take too long to retie and the opportunity can be lost. That’s why Patrick Sébile felt the need for SEBILE Game Snaps. He desired to be able to change lures quickly, yet he was not happy with the snaps on the market. Fishing everywhere for every kind of species under all fishing conditions, Patrick determined that a range of snaps were needed to perfectly cover all situations:
- Light Game Snaps: Egg-shaped. For light line fishing, very small to small lures with subtle action that may be stifled by too heavy a snap. Fish lifted by hand or net.
- Medium Game Snaps: This is the model that will meet most situations and fishing needs. Egg-shaped medium wire with safety locking clasp. For small to big lures. For light to strong lines and leaders.
- Power Game Snaps: Reserved for the strongest fish. For medium to extra large lures, strong to extra heavy lines, perfect for all big game fish in fresh and saltwater. Elongated shape, heavy interlocking wire.
Patrick Sébile’s experience has proven to him that a snap’s strength or resistance needs to be about three times stronger than the line test because the pressure put on a snap during an extended fight will slowly but surely cause permanent deformation of the snap. However, when you simply need to handline a leader to stop a fish or boat it, a short, quick, high tension like that is much easier for a snap to resist. So it is important you choose the right snap based on the use you plan to make of it and the fish you are after. With the right match between line/leader and snap, according to the chart shown, you will be able to fight any fish and have short to extremely long fights while being able to feel cool, confident and connected all the time.
To use a snap, in most cases, you don’t need to also use the nose split ring that comes with a lure. The snap itself will provide full freedom of movement to the lure.
Routinely check your line and snap after landing several fish or a big one, and don’t hesitate to replace a snap when the shape appears to have deformed from fighting fish or if a fish bit down on it. Also, bending it back too much to open it may result in deformation of the snap, leading to wrong closing position or loss of strength. Follow these simple guidelines to enjoy fishing with super strong SEBILE Game Snaps.
