The Strength of Titanium

We contracted a metallurgical testing laboratory to test the tensile strength of our swivels. The tensile strength measures the maximum load the swivels can support before the point of failure. The lab results, which are included with the description of each swivel below, indicate our titanium swivels are extremely strong, certainly stronger than jesses could ever be. 

Pineo Titan Swivels

Rose Hawking is proud to provide the falconry community with Pineo-designed titanium swivels. Based on Pineo’s design specifications, these swivels are 100% titanium and arguably the lightest, strongest falconry swivels available anywhere. 


Made in three sizes, the swivels’ characteristics are as follows:

Small

Purpose: Designed for micro-hawks and falcons; the small swivel also works well for larger hawks tethered with leashes that have incorporated the swivel braided into the leash line. 

Weight: 1.8 grams (g) or 0.063 ounces (oz)

Maximum Load: 118 kilograms (kgs) or 260 pounds (lbs)

Medium

Purpose: Designed for medium-sized hawks and falcons, tethered with leashes that include jess extenders. 

Weight: 3.2 g or 0.112 oz

Maximum Load: 167 kgs or 368 lbs

Large

Purpose: Designed for large hawks and falcons. It can be used when directly attaching the swivel to bulkier jesses – i.e., without jess extenders. 

Weight: 3.6 g or 0.0126 oz

Maximum Load: 173 kgs or 379 lbs

Specialized Titanium Swivels

We are excited to offer two new titanium swivels. One is a variant of Doug Pineo’s Titan 8 design and the other is a more unique V-shaped design. 

Slot Swivel

Purpose: Based on the Pineo Titan swivel, the Slot Swivel has a unique design with the leash threaded through a slot on one of the swivel rings, allowing the leash button to sit snuggly within the ring. This is an added safety measure, helping to ensure the leash button does not impinge on the swivel’s movement.

Weight:   3.8 g or 0.134 oz

Maximum Load: 216 kg or 476 lbs

V-Swivel

Purpose: The V-Swivel is perfect for most medium-sized hawks and falcons. It works well attached directly to jesses and with a jess extender. 

Weight:   5 g or 0.176 oz

Maximum Load: 93 kg or 205 lbs
