Default swivels

I found some really cool Black chromed ball bearing swivels 80lb test at Gander mountian , they cost maybe 50 cents each . they also have some mini key ring type things that are good for the shroud lines , good luck opening them .

On a related note , I had a saftey pin type swivel fail , the rocket came down in a tree with a tangled chute . My payload bay was attached with a saftey pin swivel which failed . Lucky for me it dropped my camera to the ground . also with enough tree wiggling the rocket dropped due to another saftey pin failure The dam chute is still in the tree. I immedatly scrapped all my saftey pin swivles except in the cases of stock platic parachutes
If it was easy , everyone would be doing it
