    That vid was not for your swivel, it is too new. But believe me, every vid looks exactly the same, unless the print fails and I have to junk the base.

    I posted the vid of the Whip because I think it is interesting how the plastic starts out transparent and during the printing process it builds up to a very complex look with different highlights and features.

    This is just the first step in making an Arc swivel. There is more.
    Awhile ago you posted that any new color options wouldn't be any time soon. And of course who really cares about the color if the swivel performs like it should. Which of course it does.
    But just for kicks, what other color(s) were you considering? Black? Silver, like a stainless steel look?


    Just curious, you don't have to answer.

    That's pretty cool all you need is the guy from the "how it's made" show to do a little narration. I gave the arch as a gift idea to the fam for me for xmas but I dont know if I can hold out that long.

    Depending on when that was filmed, that may be the exact white Arc I have.

    And I wasn't trying to knock the atomic so much either as I am hoping the bladder may need repositioned. The loop probably wont interfere as it breaks in. It is fast and a good challenge none the less.

    I would like to give your fuel arch a whirl as it looks you put alot of research and effort in that design!

    Also, I didn't mean to knock that bag. I thought it was really nice, very soft leather, looked well made. I would consider it a very thoughtful gift.

    I bet the small loop on Title Perilous is a good thing on some swivels. Like one with a narrow u-bolt like the mexican style swivels.

    New title per bag

    That's disappointing to hear that about that newer title bag I'm pretty sure I got it coming at me as a b-day gift. I recently got the x-small atomic and it is a bit lopsided as well as the loop is sewn off center making the rebound a little too unpredictable. I guess it will improve my game with other bags...

    Regarding the ARC;

    The thickest meatiest loops on any bags I have are the Ringside heritage loops. Thicker and wider than the cletos. I used a little petroleum jelly and the heritage bags now slip on somewhat nicely. Happy boy

    To be fair, all of us at SB9 had lots of beer by the time we scrutinized this bag.

    tiny, tiny loop

    Does the narrow loop slide down to one corner of the tri-hook? That may cause it to bounce funny.
    Personally, I did not notice that on the Platinum Perilous. I didn't particular care for the shape of the bag, but I didn't notice it sliding on the swivel. But then again, I didn't hit it long and Hard. would be great to get G-Town (Louis) and Matt's viewpoint on that. I think they got after it on the ARC.
