Is there any difference between swivels? or are they all the same.

I want to use one on a haul system for a giant bag.

Not really. Minor differences. Get whatever is cheapest. DMM has a swivel with hinges but that's not really something you need or even would really benefit from in wall hauling.

Have you ever looked into something like the Rock Exotica Omni Block? Swivel and pulley combined. I use them a ton for tree work and they are wonderfully built and last forever. Just an idea.

Off topic but I have a BD rotor swivel never been used I would sell you for like $30.

Dude those swivel pulleys are the best for light tree rigging (and hauling of anything)! Last forever.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
