  • My Creation, a ball hook swivel story

    This is (almost) the best ball hook swivel I have ever used.

    I don't know how I missed the swivel in your other post. I was too mesmorized by the bags. Is that the Everlast ball and hook in a new plastic type base?

      Only the steel eye bolt/s-hook is from Everlast.

        Also, it is a different swivel from any previous posts. Different material and lots of other changes. This is just the latest.

            I'm using two different thermoplastics that work well together tribologically. One is proprietary copolyester (proprietary to my supplier).

              Weird science, get it?



              Was no one else alive in the 80's? A couple of computer nerds created kelly lebrock. I created a speed bag swivel. Ironic? Or, just sad?

              p.s. Catch tune, though.

                Hey if the swivels you created are hotsy-totsy, why not throw a few together for the member baggers that are desperately hunting for a ball and hook? You could become a hero to a few here on the board.... ( of course, expenses to be met)

                    That looks great. Can't wait to see its evolution.

                      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.
