How on Earth could the two be associated? No, I haven't experienced that.. yet? Has it happened to you and can you pin it to bagging on the Arc? Is your bag room carpeted? Curious

What two are you referring to? Lubrication and electro-static discharge? If so, the former is flammable and the latter is an ignition source.

[/QUOTE] "static electricity" Sounds like getting a little jolt like when you walk around on carpet with socks, shake your friends hand and he gets a tiny electric shock. Or like some clothes right out of the dryer.. If I read your post wrong, my apologies. MR. grouchy pants

Both my arc swivels on two different platforms operate as they should and get hours of weekly use with no issues whatsoever. Although when the first one came I lubricated the ball just as a little experiment. The next day I cleaned it up like new.

What sort of jackass would lube a piece of equipment that was advertised from the get go that no lube is needed?!?! I for one certainly have no need to chance such a foolish action as I don't think there is any way to make it faster!

From my point of view, I wrote "no lubrication required" for several reasons. One is it worked just fine without lubrication, as it was designed to. Another is I had not done any chemical compatibility testing with lubricants. Yet another is that I knew my tolerances were so tight, any significant build up of crud due to lubrication could gum up the works.

And yet another is the common misconception that spinning the bag and watching how long it spins is any indication of how good or smooth your swivel is. Wrong.

Sure, you can tell a bad swivel right off the bat by spinning the bag. If it doesn't spin, you got a rusty corroded swivel. But for a good swivel, you want to see how it performs under load, meaning under actual use. Just spinning the bag puts no additional downward/outward force on the ball against the swivel base. When you punch it hard, there are significantly more forces generated and more load and friction is felt by the ball against the swivel base.

What I do is pull down on the bag with 10 or 20 pounds of force and move it around. It should feel smooth, the action should be without any jerks or snags. You basically see in slow motion how the bag will react under load, under real punching.

Esd

Havenít had the problems, however, easy fix.
Thin rubber mat on the floor (best fix, help your feet at the same time) or Copper wire from bolt holding swivel to any metal framing holding the holding the platform.
Mat breaks the grounding.
Wire delivers the charge to a different area.

An experimental jackass with a new toy. Thankfully the jackass in question knew there would not be any negative effects after a simple cleanup.

Sorry I was being sarcastic and the jackass statement was referring to me. I used a flammable lubricant and have had static issues to boot. Rusty has been absolutely phenomenal with these troubles that I helped create. I can not say enough about the customer service with the Arc on an issue that was really my fault!

The good news is I have the smaller tri-hook for the Title Perilous and similar narrow hook bags ready to ship!



Any previous purchasers of the Arc Swivel are welcome to PM me if they want to get a narrow K5P Tri-Hook. As seen in the pic above, it fits the Title Platinum Perilous perfectly. But, it also fits an bag with a very narrow loop! Pictured above is the largest, heaviest bag in my collection, the Rawlings "Reaper" 29P. It has a narrow loop and fits perfectly on the K5P.

The bad new is regular Arc Swivel production is being held up by my supply chain. My source for eye bolts is backordered, so stay tuned on that front.
