      Yes, this pic has been discussed in the past here, there's thread concerning this subject somewhere around here. As far as the size of the bag, that used to be the norm......

        Well that's just rude, JC. She's not that big.




        In all seriousness, though. The bags of yesteryear make even our largest bags today seem small by comparison.

                I've seen post from women who could take her on in room decor alone not to mention awesome punch drumming. One interesting lady though.

                  I wonder if the Powermill swivel could handle it?

                    'Must have speedbag in apartment, no matter what!'

                    An extraordinary image.

                    I also can't get over the decor! I mean, youre going to have a tough time doing any piano practice and that scaffolding is likely to leave some nasty marks on that posh looking carpet!

                      The ultimate slip bag. Just try and take a shot to the kisser from that mutant. Go on I dare ya! Better yet anyone that can fistroll on that melon is not someone I would be foolish enough to challenge in bout of fisticuffs. Hey let's see Skunk go off on it! Or some Scissors spinning elbows or Deano wreckin' it. Alan, you got a good punch drumming rhythm for this? Judging from the decor I'm guessing ragtime.
