What Brand of Chain Swivel for Manson Supreme?

Finally getting my ground tackle squirt away. I have a chain/rode coming in from Defender and I have a 44lb Manson Supreme I've been using with the old rode. The old rode had a standard shackle that gets stuck on the bow roller when I weigh anchor, so I wanted to replace it with a swivel to hopefully smooth out the operation. Of course the swivel I bought doesn't have a deep enough throat to clear the end of the shank (due to the extra material of the rock slot) and it binds.

Are there any recommended brands out there? Thanks!

I use a Mantus swivel with a 105# Mantus anchor on all chain. Great setup and the swivel clears the bow roller easily.

Good luck, Bill

I also use a Mantus swivel, on an 85# Mantus anchor and all chain rode. Works great.
