      Dutch, shoot Deano an email and have him send it to you. He can send it as a gift and save $$$ on the shipping. If you need his email, I have it, just PM me.

      He's recovering after his second shoulder operation. His wife said he's recovery nicely.

        Well I put a punch ball in it and took a couple of pics of it. Unfortunately for some reason I'm having difficulty posting them. I'll keep plugging away at it

              Hard to give a definitive answer on that. Like I said, it has a dollar store punch ball in it instead of a bladder. I gave it a few taps once I had it inflated, and in the present condition it was not a heavy feeling bag. The ball has already started bleeding down. I'm going to try to get the Jim Bradley double end bladder for it.

                That Jim Bradley bladder from Zaza's link didn't look like a double-end bladder to me.

                  The Bradley double end bag (or as they call them "floor to ceiling balls") are not round. http://jimbradley.com.au/collections...-ceiling-balls

                    Upon further examination, it appears that the Reach bag is about 10 inches at the belly, and a little more than 12 inches long inflated. Might be able to use a Title double end bladder for this. I was seriously thinking about the Cleto Reyes two valve bladder, but for what ever reason I can only find them in six packs starting at $40.

                      Just put a Title double end bladder in the A.J.Reach bag, filled it out pretty good except towards the very top of the neck. Spent a few minutes hitting it, and it's quite the lively bag, not heavy, but then not a featherweight either. Also put a new bladder in the Goldsmith MacGregor bag was well. Nice hitting bag for a long neck, much more so than either of the Everlast 4207's I have.

                        I remember the long drought when you were not in bag acquisition mode. So great to see you enjoying yourself again. Bag on.
