  • What's your favorite swivel?

    I am just interested to see what people are using for a swivel. For me the Arc is the best one I own. I'd say I can go a little faster with the Deluxe Pro but I can't do any of the more advanced combo's. My wife loves here Arc as well.

    I currently own:

    Arc Swivel Gamma (wife's) and Whip (mine)

    Title Deluxe Pro Swivel

    Title Pro

    My experience

    Being a rookie on the block I can only offer my experience.
    First, what style bagging are you doing?
    In my world there are two, Boxing style or Bible style. I did boxing style for 20 plus years. Then I discovered Bible style and have been doing that for about 3 years.
    I have purchased 3 or 4 swivels and made 3 and this is what I’ve found.
    If you’re a boxing style bagger you may want to look at something that has a top BALL BEARING swivel oppose to a BALL swivel because they seem to help contain the forward movement in a straighter direction.
    If you’re a Bible style bagger the ball is the best, 360 degree of movement and the real plus side is that 99 percent of the time the bag didn’t do what you wanted it to do, it was because of YOU. You couldn’t ask for a better training aid.
    I’ll speak only to the ball
    The Arc swivel
    Good design, quality and speed.

      I'm curious about this statement. Does control of the bag play any part? Because I think the Deluxe Pro is as long or longer than the Arc, making it no faster, inherently. Also, let me know which bag(s) we are talking about.

        I'm not a fence sitter but I don't think I can give offer a definitive answer. But I'll say this..

        For a U-bolt, IMO nothing beats a Cleto 5" on a Title Lightning fast. Orrr.. Forza now has their take on the faster U-bolt called the Hypersonic! I have both and they're awesome.

        For the real good stuff! I have three Ball hooks set up at all times.

        The Forza - It's a great all round swivel and it's also very quiet. Just bag and board.

        The Arc - IMO the Arc makes you a better bagger because it forces you to be accurate with your hits. It's very fassst and it's unforgiving. Love it! I should mention that the arc, like the Forza is a quiet swivel.

        Old Everlast Metal BH - Just a great swivel and it's cool as hell.

        Not much of an answer but it's all I got

            Not a bible style bagger. For me the fastest is an old Everlast chain link.

              Good quote

              It’s a bit sad that the Rock, Archie and Ali never had the opportunity to know each other. They would have been the fierce of enemies and the best of friends.

                The only u-bolt for me is the title lighting fast. Phenomenal swivel if you enjoy straight up boxing style. My second platform (coming soon) will have the Everlast chain link. The two best IMO.

                  For me its ball/hook all the way. I had a U-bolt on the old earthquake speed and heavy bag combo for years and gave it away once I crossed into bible bagging. My top pick would have to be the Arc, currently the Astro version. If your accuracy is on, I would be hard pressed to believe there is any swivel faster, atleast that has graced my garage. Next would have to be Butch's SS take on the Evil swivel. As Bagboy said, it is a super cool heavy duty piece. Then the runners up would be a toss up between the Swiveltech/Forza and the Deville. I got my Bible bagging start on those 2 and they will always have place in my personal hall of fame.

                    You might think I have a lot of Arc swivels, but I don't. Somehow, I ended up only with one red Fuel and one black Astro. I'm gonna have to make the other colors as keepers for myself before I forget how, lol

                    This is my favorite swivel, for sentimental reasons. A 1970's Tuf-Wear, worn out of round with countless hours over the decades of being like Rocky.

                      That's the first time I've ever seen (even in a picture) a tuff wear swivel. Looks like a very HEFTy piece.

                            Now that I installed the new fuel yesterday I can take that back. I think the defective one skewed my sense of speed because I don't know how long it was messed up for. I wanted to buy the counter but doesn't seem they are available anymore, I'd be interested to test them out.

                            They are about the same length if not it is really close. I think the fact that the deluxe stays in one direction may make it seem faster as I throw the faster/less accurate punches it continues in that same direction.

                            The bag I would compare with would have been my medium 7x10 Cleto Reyes. I just bought an xs one too. I only used it for a few minutes when I put the new swivel on.

                              This is my favorite swivel right now



                              It is a one of a kind, nobody else even dreamed of having a swivel this color!
