First thanks for the quick response
Just 1 or 2
Just an old retired guy [73] on s/s who discovered the ART OF THE BAG
and who also likes to puttering in his work shop.
Made a few swivels trying to find something just right for me
and that hook look quiet and smooth.

I am considering making a special version of the Tri-Hook that makes a snug fit to the narrow loop on the Title Platinum Perilous bag. If any Arc swivel users out there are using the Perilous bag and would be interested in this custom Tri-Hook, let me know here. I'd probably just charge shipping and material cost for Arc owners.

Here is a pic of my 1st prototype for the Tri-Hook K5P (P for Perilous)

Call me interested! My time with the Arc is limited as just received it. The Perilous is lil slower to get on the hook because it's short as well (the loop). The leather lace flap is creased and sticks up on mine but working it in . Man the light bags love this swivel. Just insane speed!

That is good feedback, thanks. Most of my bags are heavy, old school style speed bags. And they really love the Arc Swivel too.

Thanks

Tom, sorry I did get back to you sooner, received package late the 24th I was
busy cooking for Christmas. Hope you had a great one.
Installed it last night, once I got it through the eye bolt (5min) it all went together real easy and slapped it around a bit, I say slapped it because I not allowed to do any punching for another week or two had a detached retina and still have a gas bubble in there but this sure looks and feels real good.
Thank you again
I'll keep you posted

Since you have a detached retina and are making your own swivels, please please please take extra precautions against the bag coming loose and bouncing back at your head. Maybe stand on the side of the platform. Or, maybe hang a towel or carpet scrap from the platform that will act as a backstop and keep the bag from ricocheting back at you. How about some safety goggles or a hockey mask?

If you don't change bags much, maybe glue the clasp on the tri-hook so the clasp can't come off.

We have a situation brewing. One of our Arc users, who shall remain nameless, alerted me to a problem he was having with damage occuring to the Arc swivel. OMG! I know, right? I was having trouble believing it as well. Until I saw some pictures...





More details to follow, but until then, let me restate that NO LUBRICATION is needed on the Arc swivel. Just like in life, if you try it, it may work out or it won't work out. Your guess is as good as mine on this one. If anyone has Arc + lubrication info to share, please do.

If anyone using an Arc has experienced any electro-static discharge (static electricity) when touching the Arc or the mounting screws during or after a bagging session, please let me know.
