For shore rigs I use 5mm beads when boat fishinhg I use 8mm beads. I use snap swivels for my weight onle.
I use ordinary swivels for my hook lengths

I tend to use big uns, not sure of the size but safety first. Ordinary swivels to suit the beads in use and snap swivels the same size as the large stop beads.
