So far so good, but looking at your setup can you advise me why you feel the metal s-hook needs replacing? Also, can you point me to where to get upgraded metal hook parts??? Thanks
I was just getting annoyed with the noise of both the swivel, and the miss hits. Putting the string on, allowed me better feedback of miss hits after I got those miss hits sorted out I went back to the caribeener. I switch between 3 bags, and the string allows me to switch between the bags quickly.

Swivel

I did the same thing with my plastic everlast. I put a Watkins ball and hook in it and it actually hits alright. But I only got it for a couple days because the Deville is a much much better choice

Funny I have the same Watkins ball and hook with Everlast plastic base hybrid sitting on a shelf. I have never hit on it because just like you I love the Deville too much.

I'll admit it, I'm sooo jealous of you guys with the Deville's. I have the two forza's and I really like them but it would be nice to compare a forza to a Deville. Or maybe have one of each on two different platforms.

From what I can tell they ran out of Deville's back in 2013 ish?

I got my DeVille March of 2017 on Speedbagshack.com. But they have not had it back in stock since or I would buy a backup since it seems like this is the end of the line.

I have a Deville base with no ball or hook in it, But I can't remember where the ball & hook went, i'm at dialysis, Mom's getting a treatment but when I go home I could take a pic of what I have and post it here.

Well whatever you have for a ball & hook is obviously working. But I am curious as to how you lost the original..? I'm one of those guys who has nails, screws, staples, you name it in jars and sometimes I find the strangest things while looking in some of them. hope you post a pic of that

Thumbs up

I have this horrible $7. TKO ball hook that I bought back when I started. The ball & hook mechanism is as one piece and it's horribly designed. The hook is very narrow and none of my cleto's, the title, or even the TKO bag I have fit comfortably in it. And, this thing is VERY clanky and loud. It's virtually unusable.
I was enjoying a can of Guinness one evening and decided to cut the empty can open to extract the "floating widget", it's a little round plastic hollow ball. I've cut it in half and drilled a pilot hole as you see below. Next step is to hunt down the other parts. A visit to Lowes should do the trick. This will be a major improvement with the action and the noise. I think

..just a reminder, you have to enjoy a pint to get to the ball
