What are you going to do with your other swivels that you don't use?

We have been tweaking them here and there for the past several weeks, and have changed some of the materials. Our biggest hurdle was figuring out how to make the S-hook. Raul has figured out a pretty consistent way of making them now.

So, I think we have finally achieved our goal: to produce a swivel that is smooth, fast, and relatively quiet. And it's… a little different.

I've posted a few videos on the forum showing examples of how it performs on my metal platform, the concrete platform, and also the vertical platform. Personally, I'm totally pleased with it. Especially since I changed out the carabiner with the s-hooks that Raul is fabricating.

So, we are now moving forward with this and have sent out a few prototypes to some of our premiere speed baggers here on the forum. I was thrilled to get positive feedback from each of them. Thanks Alan, Tim, Skunk, and novaspeedbagger and I invite all of you to give your impression of the swivel.

So, I'm posting at this time to see if there is enough interest in this swivel to continue making them. Right now, we have 20 swivels left in this first batch to offer at a special price. I wish I could give them away, but, there is a lot of time, labor and material invested. I know Jumpcannon can relate to this. His custom swivels are a classic design and worth every penny.

Anyway, if anyone is interested in one, please PM me and I'll get back to you.

Here are the links showing the swivel:
