Twisted dropper rig I use for kgw, it doesn't tangle easily and pretty deadly with a KL hook. Only problem are Puffers and lj's chewing on the line destroys the whole lot so I tie up 6-7 rigs as spares for each trip.
Why put snap at the sinker??
Why not just put a loop there and loop on your sinker
I have found that if you just put a loop, the line can wear through from rubbing the sinker eyelet.(especially common with cheap made sinkers, tha have burrs).
but i guess it depends on how strong your line is.

i personally use a mix depending on the sinker weight.

The snap's there so I can remove the hook and secure the rig to a rod guide when not in use.

This is an interesting video on method to get droppers to sit out and not tangle without need of three way swivels

Yet to try might give it a go tomorrow.
