When I first got the 7x4 I put 2 solid weeks of extensive use of it before I started to feel comfortable with it.

    I dusted off my 7x4 top contender (haven't used it in about 9 months) and hit for about 30 minutes tonight. The first 20 minutes was pretty depressing. I was ready to take it down and put the 8x5 back up within the first 5 minutes... but don't give up too easy on these smaller bags... once your timing adjusts you'll be hitting it nearly as well as a bigger bag.
    Thanks, Tim. I'll give it another chance, and I'll see how it goes. But even if I adjust my timing, it will still feel like hitting air. Right now, my favorite bag is the everlast pro 8 x 5. It moves fast, I can really feel the impact, and I get a good workout with it.

    It will definitely make less noise than a bigger bag...

    I have a 6x4 everlast bag that I got a while ago that I really like, but it is a great deal bigger than the rival and grant 6x4 bags I have seen from the videos on youtube. I went ahead and asked Grant's customer service about the bag they are selling online that says "small" and they told me that it was a 5x8 bag. So after actually seeing the size of the Rival bag today on youtube and a few pictures here on the forum, I decided to go ahead and get the Rival 6x4 bag. I can't wait to hit one of those tiny bags! I am always up for a good challenge. Also I am hoping a smaller bag will be a little less noise, maybe not but no biggie if so. Hey thanks for all the knowledge and advice everybody has shared with me. It is highly appreciated.

I am gonna put it on a kiddie platform that I am making for my 3-year-old son. Otherwise, I regret wasting the money.
    ...and that's the truth. I Couldn't agree more about trying to find THE smallest bag.

I want to get one, could someone tell me if this is the same Grant 6x4 speedbag in this link because I don't see a dimension on it. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    I would say it is the same one. The Grant bag that Skunk is hitting was purchased from Ringside Boxing. It was a 6x4, and very small and light. In action, it wasn't that much fun to hit. A cool little novelty bag, but for elbow strikes, particularly downwards, it was very difficult to use.

    But you may love it. I just didn't care for it's action.

    Like Tim, I have not seen or had hands on a Rival 6x4.

    I haven't seen them side by side... I can tell you that grant bag is *SMALL*

    I've only seen the rival on video.

    Honestly either is probably as small a bag as you would ever want. I'm not sure if the link is the one that Skunk has... you could e-mail their customer service and ask.
