I don't think that is normal. If anything, this swivel improved my rebounds. Sure, post a vid. And maybe a close up photo of the installed swivel.

Yeah I ran back to back tests on my new Swiveltek and the swivel that came with my Everlast adjustable platform. The Swiveltek is somewhat slower. But I don't think that is a bad thing. It actually made me slow down and try to make my moves more crisp. I am trying to be too fast for my skill level.

Note: I lost the black disk that keeps the eye hook from hitting the sides. The owner of the Speed Shack is getting me a new one for free! Talk about great customer service! I somehow lost the disk in my trip to the hardware store and back. I needed new hardware since I drilled new holes for the Swiveltek all the way through to the top. Anyone on the fence about the Swiveltek, the customer service alone makes this a great product. Speed Shack thanks again!

For any one wanting to lube this swivel Superlube makes a great synthetic grease that is rated Excellent compatability wise for the Delrin bushing in it. I was getting some bad swings from the ball not moving smoothly and after a light amount of Superlube grease it is back to being smooth, fast and straight.

It will do exactly what your rubber band will do - it will prevent the eye hook from hitting the side of the swivel housing. It's made out of a special polyurethane rubber so it will last a very long time, and you won't need to have a rubber band on your swivel!

Not that it wasn't a good looking rubber band or anything...

By the way, I love that rubber cap! Great way to keep a bag on.

Happy bagging,

John
John, I am not happy with how my Swiveltek LTX is wearing. After only 4 months the plating on the ball is pitting and peeling and the ball stops swiveling long before the bag stops its pendulum swing. It is installed in a humidity controlled basement. I have used no oils or lubricants on it. Is it warrantied? Can I get a replacement?

-Rusty

I agree. So I replaced the SwivelTek with this homemade version. ( Not my idea btw) It is smoother, way faster and quiet. The cost of the parts is about $25. Very slick Swivel. I mounted this swivel with 1/4 x 1 inch lag screws. Very tight and secure fit

I would like to recant my complaints about the Swiveltek and premature wear. I removed the swivel and took a closer look under a magnifying lamp. Turns out what appeared to my eye as pitting and peeling was simply a bit of tarnishing combined with black deposits which I believe are from the delrin seat. I used a Dremel and polished the ball good as new.

Sorry about that, my bad. The LTX continues to rock!
