terminating leaders

ok guys here is a question ...

what do you end your leaders with when using heavy lines - pe8 (so about 100lb - 150lb nylon leaders) its more aimed at the jigging/popper rigs as i dont want something too bulky at the start of poppers etc . ... i was thinking of a solid ring with a hawiian snap but was worried the line would cut on the oval shapped ring .. then looked at a large crane swivel or b/b swivel and it looks to bulky.. any answers out there ??
