  • Just got my new Forza swivel!!!

    Just got this bad boy in today! Applied some grape seed oil to lessen friction & ziptied the bag loop - wow this swivel is FAST!!! I have a 12+ yr old Title U-bolt swivel, as well as a modified Everlast plastic base that I swapped in a brass ball into. My intitial impression of this swivel is that it's a very impressive , FAST design and I appreciate the effort to bring a high quality piece of equipment to market!!! Thanks to whoever is behind making this available!!!

            Yes, I learned from this forum that taping off, or in my case zip tying, the leather strap helps keep the bag from rising up on the hook it hangs from. Less movement = more control.

            Regarding the oil:

            I had to remove the Forza from the platform and give it a good cleaning. As it turns out, the grapeseed oil thickened up and gunked up the swivel, significantly slowing it down.

            After cleaning it back to new condition, I reinstalled the Forza and applied WD-40 to the brass ball hook.

            Grapeseed oil does not work well.

              Grape seed oil is a vegetable oil no good on metals
