    i wounder what year they started to go downhill. i remember them having good speed bags years ago then they made bags with plastic seams. the bags from them i remember getting was the 4200 6x9 now their bag is shaped like those banana longer type bags. they should go back to that nice tear drop shape...ralph

        damn!!! they recreated that N.M.CO. platform from about 100 years ago. 320 lbs, 36 inch drum!

        lol, the plasticon bag. I had that bag back then.
        other than that -looks like some great quality bags back then, it doesnt seem like there was a lot of options with bag size though.

          Everlast bought Narragansett in 1968. Wonder if that isn't Narragansett's 1960s platform design. Wish Narragansett was still around, but could they survive today? Most of this stuff was union made in the USA, and in recent memory. How do you compete in a world of $6 wholesale bags made in China? So what if they're crap, the average person doesn't see the punch coming. Puts it all up for sale on Craigslist when it doesn't work out too well.

          We forget what we had not all that long ago.

                "Made in America" is pretty much gone.


                Nowadays we're pretty much punching China and Pakistan.


                footnote: In 1994 I was writing The Speed Bag Bible, took most of the pictures for the book and was punching 3-5 hours a day, almost everyday. And doing it on American Made Everlast bags. I miss 1994

                  ah, the good ole' days before profit overtook the desire for quality, and your brand name on T-shirts and workout gear was more important than impact gear.

                  lately I've had a few requests via Speedbagcentral.com for information about locating and buying "the biggest speed bags made", such as the

                  4208 (13x8)
                  4205 (13x10)
                  4207 (14x9)
                  4212 (14x9)

                  Lord knows these would reek havoc on a flimsy 24 inch presswood economy board.
