      Shows a bit of use, but there is a lot more left in it, that's for sure

        Looks like a good ball hook swivel. I suppose it is made of stainless steel?

          No just good quality machine grade tool steel, the socket is a steel casting.

            Any chance the socket is zinc? I have some everlast sockets with a similar look and they are zinc.

              Looks like a zinc die casting to me.

                Could be zinc, or aluminum, I've had experiences with small foundries that poured both. I haven't had an Everlast socket in about twenty plus years. My current set up uses a Ringside swivel that is a hybrid U bar that also accepts an old school Everlast ball & hook

                  It's a no jump swivel, but the price sure has jumped!

                      What does "no-jump" mean? and please don't say it doesn't jump.

                        The ball jumping up from a mishit? At least they don't claim gyro-balanced.

                          I made my Arc swivels with <2.0mm headroom so the ball would not "jump" or "float" no matter how poorly you hit. Many ball swivels I have seen have a relatively large headroom.

                            In the pic above, I would estimate there is at least 5.0mm of headroom, maybe more.
