Bag comparison

I picked up a few assorted speed bags in preparation for the Orlando seminar on 5/26. Here's a variety of bags from different vendors for comparison:


From left to right, top row:

Title Classic 8x5 5.2oz
Rival 8x5 5.8oz *** The Title web site calls this an 8x5, but I think it's a "small" 8x5 ***
Everlast 6x4 6.5 oz
Top Contender 7x4 4oz (!)
Ringside 6x4 4oz (!) *** The Ringside web site calls this an 8x5, I think it's 6x4 or 7x4

Bottom row:
Title 11x8 9.2 oz
Title 10x7 8oz
Everlast 9x6 8 oz
Title 8x5 6oz

The two 4 ounce bags are incredibly light. It's like punching nothing, especially after hitting the 8 oz and 9oz bags for any amount of time.

No video yet I need a 6 pin to 4 pin FireWire cable to import video to my new computer.

Here's a shot to compare the 11x8 to the 7x4:

I've been using the Title 9x6 red bag a lot lately. Nice feel for a 9x6. And the seams between the panels are a lot less evident than a few other bags.

Thanks for the comparison Tim. Interesting how all the bags in the top row are basically the same height. The Everlast 6x4 looks to be a nice shape. I picked up a Cleto Reyes XS a few days ago. It measures 7"x4.5". Fantastic bag. I'll post a comparison of the six bags I have tomorrow.

interesting that the everlast 6x4 is heavier than the classic title 8x5. tim, how does that 6x4 compare to the top contender bag? i've been thinking about a new bag and have been eyeing the classic title and that everlast bag.

I haven't had a chance to use the new Everlast extensively. This weekend I'll try to post some video of each bag in action.

The difference between the Classic 8x5 and the Everlast 6x4 is in the materials it's made with I guess.
The classic 8x5 is one of the lightest bags you can get, for it's size.

That's the bag of bags there. I had one of those in my high school days when you had to show up with your own bag at the gym, it was always the drumroll compared to others. I currently own the Ringside 5x8 and I agree with Tim I think it is either 7x4 or smaller. I love how quick and durable it is.

HMP is right. It's a beautiful bag. Buttery soft goatskin leather, impeccable craftsmanship, perfectly balanced. It even sounds different than other bags. Like it pads off the drum instead of slapping it. Weighs 5 3/8 oz. I love that Lonsdale Peanut but this Cleto Reyes is getting tons of drum time now.
