Arc Swivel video and review

Yesterday I hit on BRDelacruz's stainless steel swivel, and today I hit on the Arc Fuel ball hook swivel. I must hand it to our two members, they have created two high quality swivels at a time when only really one is being offered by the big manufacturers. There are some other ball hooks out there, but they are mostly cheap ones. And Everlast doesn't even list their plastic ball hook on their website, you have to call up to order it, and it needs some mods to it like gluing in the eyelet piece.

Thanks to both members for your products, and I recommend to buy both! In my opinion you can never have enough back ups since you never know when they will stop being made.

Thank you, jaja for the excellent in-depth review. The only clarification I would like to make is, if you buy my Arc swivel, you are not supporting me, you are supporting the Arctic Spirit Rescue (#ArcticSpiritRescue). 100% of the sale goes to the dogs, I don't see a dime. In fact, it costs me quite a bit of time and money to make them, so please don't order to many.

The swivel, bags and your skill in bagging are all great!
I wish I can hit as good as you.
Very nice review Jamieson! Thanks again!🍻

Thumbs up

Great video! I have the white one.. Going to get the red as a backup. Can't go wrong with the ARC swivel. BTW I cut a thin piece of duct tape about an inch and half long and wrapped it around the eyelet and that completely silenced the knocking so all I hear is bag and board when hitting a smaller bag.


How long have you had the doorframe mount up there? Do you find that it's any louder in regards to house vibrations than your main platform?

Sorry, my bad. Not sure if you got it but I also sent you a pm a few weeks ago about how much I liked your swivel. It replaced my forza on one of my main platforms. I don't know that I could expand on jaja's review.. I would encourage others to get their mitts on one or two of your swivels.

A brand new baby Arc Jazz is taking form on the 3D printer right now. Cute little feller.

Oh, I forgot to mention tribology in response to your review.



Even though I am an engineer, this word was new to me when I learned it recently at the ripe age of 51.

I was pretty excited to learn not only the world, but about the field of study that really cuts to the heart of speed bag swivel design. I think understanding the basics of tribology can help you make that "next level" swivel.
