That doesn't mean that there will be delays. Just learning how the process works because it's the first sales we've had with the new system.

Cheers!
I liked The Watkins (Boxing Gear in old days), as far as form and function. I only fell of the swivel when it wasn't available and I got wind of all the backorders. But when a company steps up. owns the errors and tries to make good by putting out a great product with excellent customer services, ....than they deserve another shot. The Speed Bag World always needs a good ball hook swivel that is easy to get.

My initial review of it about 10 years Ago....

...if you start making these up again, you should make the eyebolt and S-hook shorter, More like the old Everlast, Of course also have the wide opening on the S-hook to accommodate for the wider loops of todays speed bags.

It's definitely something we'll look into.

UPDATE!

Found out from the manager that we have extra ball and swivels available for separate purchase. I know a few of you have been asking for them. I only have 10 available at this point.

Are these eye bolts and hooks made differently than the eye bolt and hook of the recently sold swivels? Are these made as to the eye bolt and hook Ventanakaz described?

The extra ball and hook are to the same spec as the ones that come with the speed bag swivel. Unfortunately, we're not able to make the changes suggested right away. They'll need to be revised on the next batch.

Hi all! It looks like I only have 1 precision ball swivel left. May the odds be ever in your favor! We are in contact with the manufacturer to have more made with your feedback to make it as close to your recommendations as possible! This may take some time, so please bear with us.

In addition, we do have the ball-bearing bicycle-style all steel swivel available for purchase. It's a STEAL (pun intended) of a price for this type of construction.

ALL STEEL BICYCLE-STYLE SPEED BAG SWIVEL

I am offering Free Shipping to anyone who is a member of the SpeedBagForums.com. Regular price of this swivel is $29.99, I'm listing it for $19.99.

In order to receive the free shipping discount, please PM me for the code.

Finally, I want to thank YOU for trusting us for your orders, questions, comments, and recommendations. Since we established ourselves on the forums, we have been able to send out numerous Speed bag Swivels, and hopefully those that have received our products are happy with them.

All the best,

Andrew

Does this bike chain swivel lower unscrew and then screw onto your ball hook upper/base?.

Recommendations for a new swivel. The ball hook swivel needs a short s/hook. Your current design needs to be shorter over all. Keep the shook width the same so you make sure as many bags as possible fit since there is such a large variation in bag loop widths. It would be a big plus if you could have the lower base screw off and be able to screw on that bike chain lower. That way you could have two different types of swivels and not have to remove the screws to the board to switch between. Sometimes I like to hit on ulinks and bike chains for speed doing boxing style triplet. If you make this swivel sign me up for three off the bat.
