    Hmm, I want to say it's a Medart, most if not all of their output was for institutional use. Not something that you would see everyday.

      The seller wrote back and said the swivel says "Healthways Champion". I've seen them in old photographs, never seen one for sale before.

          So, the bag goes directly on the eye-bolt, no S-hook in between? Outrageous!

            That does seem outrageous.

              That's a bargain. Not for me, but someone might want one.

                Maybe it works ok with big heavy bags on rusty or otherwise not smooth ball swivels, but its a loser when you crank up the performance.

                    What are the advantages and disadvantages the hook going straight to the ball? Tom did you try this in your testing with the Arc?

                      This is something I tried early on. I just didn't move right. It is short and therefore fast, but too much axial force is transferred to the bag and the rebounds were not accurate.

                        I think I knew the answer before I asked the question on whether you tried it.
