    I have this horrible $7. TKO ball hook that I bought back when I started. The ball & hook mechanism is as one piece and it's horribly designed. The hook is very narrow and none of my cleto's, the title, or even the TKO bag I have fit comfortably in it. And, this thing is VERY clanky and loud. It's virtually unusable.
    I was enjoying a can of Guinness one evening and decided to cut the empty can open to extract the "floating widget", it's a little round plastic hollow ball. I've cut it in half and drilled a pilot hole as you see below. Next step is to hunt down the other parts. A visit to Lowes should do the trick. This will be a major improvement with the action and the noise. I think

    ..just a reminder, you have to enjoy a pint to get to the ball

    Well whatever you have for a ball & hook is obviously working. But I am curious as to how you lost the original..? I'm one of those guys who has nails, screws, staples, you name it in jars and sometimes I find the strangest things while looking in some of them. hope you post a pic of that

    From what I can tell they ran out of Deville's back in 2013 ish?
    I got my DeVille March of 2017 on Speedbagshack.com. But they have not had it back in stock since or I would buy a backup since it seems like this is the end of the line.

    So far so good, but looking at your setup can you advise me why you feel the metal s-hook needs replacing? Also, can you point me to where to get upgraded metal hook parts??? Thanks
    I was just getting annoyed with the noise of both the swivel, and the miss hits. Putting the string on, allowed me better feedback of miss hits after I got those miss hits sorted out I went back to the caribeener. I switch between 3 bags, and the string allows me to switch between the bags quickly.

    Cheers

I have never had much rhythm before but putting the bag and music together helped me get a little rhythm and helped my timing. Everything else we try helps too. You are doing great for a beginner. Elbows up.

    You can get brass or steel bearings threaded.... Do not know if they ship international? Give them a shot
