thanks for this information. I did not have a swivle for todays launch but i used a quick link for the chute and it did not tangle, so the smaller link must have helped. I had my chute about 16 inches from the NC. It had a BEAUTIFUL slooow landing. I was supper happy.
Glad you had a good flight. Swivels are not requirements, nor q-links. Your rocket will not explode or fail without them. They're just small things that, in my opinion, help.

Depends on what you are trying to do. Record altitude flights, more weight in the wrong place. Higher descent rates, need bigger chutes.
