    Tuck, the reason for a swivel on each side of the bubble is so the bubble stays in place on the rig and not have it ride up your mainline. You can make a bubble rig with no swivels at all, but to do it right would require two beads.

    To make a swivelless bubble rig tie an overhand or figure eight knot in the leader about 12" from the mainline end, slip on a bead then the bubble then another bead. To finish it off use the knot John described that I provided the drawing of. Tie this knot to where you only have a couple of inches of slide on the bubble between the two beads (I know that I mentioned tying the first knot 12" down, but it is easier to tie a knot with a bit of excess than just enough and a few inches of wasted leader material won't break the bank). The beads are needed for two reasons, it prevents the knots from getting jammed into the bubbles tube and it makes a clacking noise that helps draw strikes.

    The swivel above the float acts as a stop to keep it from riding up your line during a cast.

    I've used the albright on single strand many times but does it really work on seven strand?

    I use a short strip of 60# mono joined to 40 pound floro. The uni to uni knot serves the same purpose, which is keeping the bubble from sliding down too far during the retrieve/jerking process. That gives the bubble about 10 inches to work, clear glass beads on both sides for more "clatter" and less wear on the knot.

    As everyone else said...sorry....I wrote the post thinking I was at the end of the thread and then, "poof," next page.
