I have made over 50 swivel designs in the past 9 months. This pic is not of all of them, but gives you an idea of the evolution. I didn't try to sort them, its just random evolved DNA.



I used the one in the foreground with the s-hook as my heavy bag mount for about 3 months. And of course as my speed bags for a couple months before, and a couple months after. So if you think plastic can't be strong and durable, think again.

And since we don't have transparent aluminum yet, yes I am still working with polymers.

LoL. Pretty much I'm way past my ball hook learning curve now and swivels are in my dreams.

Man, those l00k so cool.

Looks like an invasion of 1950's UFO's has landed.

One thing I would say to improve your setup would be in the ball and S-hook assembly, it's to bad I don't have the time for myself to make some assemblies, But when I do i'll post on this forum, The S-hook is hard to make and takes time to get all the bends right and the spacing too.

I agree about the eye-bolt/s-hook. I'm still working on that part. The one in the pic is from Everlast. I have some prototypes with hooks I've made myself, but I'm not very good at metal bending.

But I'm very happy with the ball. I have lots of reasons, and have done lots of testing. For now I am sticking with that part.

It starts with the drawing board. And sometimes it goes back to the drawing board...

And if everything goes right, it ends in execution...

I have been doing some engineering stress testing on the Mk.II model ('f' series)...
