  • Forum Rules Forza swivels

    Sadness...looks like Forza Sports has sold the last of the Forza swivels. My hook finally wore thru and I went to order another from Forza and they no longer have it in their product line. Amazon also showed currently unavailable and don't know if or when it will be available. I am hoping that they order another run from the manufacturer but the fact that it is not even mentioned in their product line leads me to assume not. I guess we will start looking for other well made ball hooks.

    This is an outrage! They may not be showing it in their product line while they are out of stock..? I hope. I have two, but three is such a comfy sounding number, dangit. Yet everybody keeps pumping out U-hooks like they're going outta style.

    I'm very tempted to use colorful language.

      If ya had kept a dab of grease on the hook and eye bolt where they met, you would still have it

        Wow, well I'm glad I at least got myself one copy!

        One of our forum members here said it best: if you find something you like, consider buying two!!!

          Forza swivels

          Actually I bought three and really only use one as my primary. I have a second on a little used platform and one in reserve. The good news is that the wear is only on the hook so I can fabricate a new one with a better stainless. There is no wear on the eye bolt what so ever. Have ordered some Hillman s hooks to repair. Hopefully Forza will reorder. I sent an email to them asking if they were just on back order or if they were phased out. I will post when I hear from them.

            ^^^^^Can always call, doesn't hurt to ask^^^^^

            Never mind, looks like you've already emailed them. Anxious to hear what they have to say, if anything.

              I emailed them and they told me 2-3 weeks and they should have more available. So I am pretty sure they are not going away

                  Thanks for the update.

                  That's good news. I hope they are the exact same product with no corner cutting on the new batch (not that they would, but these things happen) and hopefully they make a lot of them as there is obviously a demand for these ball hooks. Will definitely pick up another one or two as backups.

                    The swivels are available again on eBay. I picked up a few.

                              Baggin heavy for a few hours last night working on side hitting etc when all the sudden, the hook and bag flew across the room! Lol scared the hell outta me, I didn't see it unthreading until it was too late. Never heard of this happening with the Forza swivel. Took the plastic cap off the bottom of my other forza and tried with all the physical strength I could muster to unscrew that one, but it wouldn't budge.
