Swivel compatibility??? (Short Answer is NO!)

Which brands of swivels are interchangeable? The Everlast 4440 and 4444 models have 2 inch spacing on the holes on the base of the swivel.

Specifically I'm wondering what model I could replace my Everlast 4440 with when the time comes. The metal 4440 is no longer produced (it's plastic now), so that probably won't be an option.

My first 4440 only lasted about 3 weeks. My 2nd one could go at any moment!?!

I suppose I could just drill a new set of holes in the drum and get whatever is available...

Swivel compatibility

Swivel compatibility is a black hole in the speed bag universe. It doesn't exit. There is no compatibility between brands. If it is a two piece swivel, with a board base and a bag attachment, than the holes for the board base probably won't match between brands, and the threads on the bag attachment either won't fit or the whole piece is the wrong size.

That is why I always purchase swivels in groups by the same company, (until recently, always the Everlast 2-piece ballhook #4440) they were always interchangeable with each other. Forget about trying to mix and match brands. it just won't happen.

Much as I hate to say it: This swivel appears to be the model for the next wave of speed bag swivels. When modified correctly, It beats the alternatives.

Swivel Compatibility? Thread Match

Hi Folks,

Iíve got a question on swivel compatibility:

Would an everlast base (plastic) house a Boxing Gearís Swivel (#WAtkins-Swivel02)?

And would a Boxing Gearís Swivel (#WAtkins-Swivel02) base house an everlast swivel?

You see Iíve ordered 2 of the Boxing Gearís Ball Swivel (above) and my friend (training partner) has 2 everlast swivels with plastic bases. So, Iím wondering if his bag attachment will fit my base?

Thanks.

I thought the everlast plastic were "one piece" ? therefore , no it wouldn't. I could be wrong though as I haven't seen a plastic one up close. The metal swivels are two piece - a base and the swivel that screws into it ? I

There's not many of them out there, but there are Everlast swivels with plastic bases and metal inserts, just like the all metal ball and hook swivels except the base is plastic. I think that's what he's referring to.
