Yes, I agree, it is definitely smoother and easier to control on the basic boxing punches. I preferred the U-bolt for my first 6 months or so. I thought there wasn't anything better than a U-bolt. But, I kept reading about the benefits of the S-hook for the fancier punching and took the plunge. It took me a little while to adjust, but once I learned how to control it, I fell in love with it.

The drawback of using the u-bolt for what I do, is that it tends to rattle a lot and I had a hard time controlling my elbow punches. (Well, my Everlast U-bolt was noisy.) Which brand do you have? How long have you been using the speed bag?

Here is a video of me punch-drumming at 6 months in, on a U-bolt. This was pre-SpeedB.A.G. 2010, so it's pretty rough:

U-bolts are definitely quiet, but consistently hitting side punches is somewhat tricky on many u-bolt models, which is why a lot of "bible style" punchers prefer ball hooks.

Here's some Deville swivel, I like it a lot. I used the zip tie that came with it to attach the bag which makes for a wicked fast short rebound, especially with a small 8x5 bag (that's a Pro-Mex)

That Grant is a nice swivel. Nicer than the old Everlast u-bolt I had. If you are from a boxing background, then it looks like the U-bolt definitely serves your purpose. I love watching Pacquiao on the speed bag. He is one focused individual.

Thanks for posting this video, Tim. I knew you'd put it to the speed test. Sorry about not including an S-hook when I sent it. Raul hadn't made any yet, and I was just too anxious to get it to you. I'll drop one in the mail tomorrow for you. It shouldn't be too difficult with the proper pliers or vice grips, or whatever...

Hey tj. If you're interested, PayPal works for me. You can Private Message me with your address and I can give you my PayPal account name. Thanks for your interest.

Oh yeah, about the purple. We're going to experiment with a few colors... not sure about purple. But, like Gozzee suggests, you could probably paint it, but you would need to make sure that it is the kind of paint that will adhere to neoprene-type material.

Thanks, Kevin! I guess I'm a full-fledged speed bag addict. I'm making my own gear!

Thanks so much, Ryan. And I agree about two heads being better than one! Thanks for the offer to help with any problems. It's appreciated. I've never done anything like this and it's a little nerve-wracking...

I'm excited that so many members are willing to take the plunge and try it out. Hopefully, they'll be a success. There's always room for something new in the speed bagger's world.
