Default Rival New Generation Speed Bag

I know many of you don't use the speed bag, but I enjoy it and find it good for arm/shoulder workouts and a fun way to burn some calories.

I've been using a big, slow Everlast 13x9 gyro bag for a long time. Last week I upgraded to the Rival in the smallest (5x8 ) size:

Thought I might have trouble with the smaller, faster size, but I didn't. Went right to work on it and its a lot of fun.

Its a nice bag. Leather and seams are well done and doesn't leak air (Everlast leaked) and rebounds perfectly.

I'll post some video of me using it when I get a chance.

Thought I'd post this in case anyone out there is looking to pick up a nice speed bag at a good price.

Its my first piece of Rival gear and everything I've read about them seems to be true. Good quality equipment.

$40.00

Click the link to go to the title site. They have other bags of course, but I went with that one.

So far, I love it.

Quick clip I recorded today, messing around with single rebound speed bagging.

Its a lot harder than it looks. Anyone here able to do it any better than me?

Its back up now. The end of the video (some heavybag work) is messed up, not sure why.

I took it down and uploaded it a couple times hoping to fix it, but its not working.

Anyway, the speedbag stuff is in the beginning and works fine.

Check it out at the link above or here:

their speedbags are unreal but the swivels arent the best. the pin that holds it all together kept coming loose, as a result the bolt on top came loose and couldnt be tightened. i took mine into the shop yesterday, drilled it out and put a cotter pin into it to keep it in place, also had to spot weld the bolt on top so it wouldnt come loose again. had to do a few other things too, wasnt painted or logo'ed like they said it was. luckily i have access to a shop to fix it all, most people would end up having to buy a new one. works fine now tho
