Forza Swivel Ball Hook doesn't line up with my other's

Just a quick question. I have a few platforms and I have a few swivels. Just got the Forza Ball Hook and it does not line up with my other swivels and don't really want to drill new holes. Has anyone else found that to be the case?

I've had about 5 different types/brands of swivels - including Forza - and they always line up

That depends on where your "few swivels" are from. I can't get much information on that First Rate boxing gear, however maybe their swivel holes are not set apart on the standard size?

A "SWIVEL" for $150.00 !!?? seriously??!

Same here. Never had a problem but....

A long time ago I think there was a Ringside swivel that had the holes a bit closer, on a smaller base, but it disappeared from their catalogue years ago.

(PS: I picked up a couple of Forza's just because.....)

I didnít check on my first rate platform. Itís my rogue platform that I changed out a month ago with the Everlast ball hook. It fit fine in the previous holes. But this forza is smaller? Iíll post pics tomorrow. I own 4 swivels. 3 of them have the same hole pattern. The odd one out is the forza. So Iím a bit confused.

Different companies make things differently. I hear ya though, I wish they all agreed on one base size

So here are some pics of 4 of the 5 swivels I own. It's like the old Sesame Street or Electric Company one of these is not like the other. 4 of my Swivels are exactly the same hole pattern (I don't have the First Rate pictured but it is) The Forza is the only one different. I know everyone has said they have always lined up with the Forza but not mine. I am new to this so maybe I just bought the wrong swivels before the Forza. But here are the pics so you can see.

you will just have to repair the old swivel base screw holes. Get a 3/16 wood dowel. Trim a piece of dowel to fit 3/4 inch depth of the screw hole. Then top it off with wood putty. You can then sand the dried wood putty to smooth and dab some wood stain on the 4 repairs. This is the easiest and cheapest way I know of. Put your Forza up and soon you wont even notice the repairs
