    Awesome MsD! That's alot of good info on those bags.
    thank you.
    I didn't expect you to take photos, and bust out the kitchen scale. hehe
    But, it is nice to see the bags side by side like that, and to know the actual weight of each bag. It gives me a feel for what to look out for with the FS 5x8.

    Keep us updated!
    Boy, is my face red. I meant to say OUNCES. Thanks Jim. Yikes! A 7-lb bag! Hmmm... maybe it would speed up the process of toning my arms!

    I'll keep you posted on the new S-biner swivel...

    It's spring-loaded at both ends, so it's easy to attach to the I-bolt in the metal ball of the swivel, and any bag will fit – even the fat Cleto loop. It seems to be well-manufactured, but time will tell if it can hold up to speed bagging. The other nice thing about it? It only costs $1.99. I hope it holds up.

    Are they very close to being the same size, or if not, which one is larger?
    Is the title bouncier, or is it the FS?
    And finally, which one is heavier?
    To answer your questions about the bags...
    Yes, the yellow Title and the Fighting Sports bags are very close in size. See photos.

    BodyFirstFitness Speed Ball and Title Bag

    I have a digital kitchen scale, so I weighed all of them. This isn't very scientific, because I didn't bother to check the air pressure in each. Does air weigh much? Is it pertinent to the weight of the bag?

    The Fighting Sports weighed: 6.7 ozs.
    The yellow Title weighed: 7 ozs.
    And my BFF bag weighed: 7.6 ozs.

    To me, the white Fighting Sports has no "bounce" to it. I liken it to the surface of a softball – hard.

    The Title has almost a spongy feel to it, in my opinion. It gives to the touch.

    And the BFF ball is, well, like a ball. It's bulbier than the other two, so it appears more round. And it has great rebounding qualities.

    But, yes, you give up speed. Well, unless you're Deano or Alan Kahn. I'll upload a video tonight featuring Alan at SB II. He's hitting on a Jim Bradley speed ball, very similar to my BFF speed ball.

    I'd like to mention something about the new "S-hook" I'm using with my swivel in this video.

    Thanks Larry! It just takes practice. And, for me, encouragement. (That's why I love this board... everyone is so positive and constructive in their criticism...)

    I just noticed that this video marks the 101st video posting on You Tube – most of my videos are of my progress since I started in Aug. 2009.

    And I am still obsessed with this hobby of mine!

    Thanks, fingers! I still have a long way to go in the upper arm dept. – don't look too closely! – I still tend to favor my left arm, and my right shows it! As I mentioned, this bag makes me really work my arms and is really helping me to improve my stamina with repetitive linking. I find it very challenging to see how many times I can do it without goofing up.

    Why, thanks so much, Vegas! My punches aren't perfect, but, I feel that I do a pretty good job of keeping my elbows up, which is such a big part of speed bagging.

  • Sugar Ray & MsDeville – "Someday" (Sugar Ray, the band!)

    Well, I guess You Tube isn't blocking this video (yet) that I posted last night.

    I'm punching on the small white Fighting Sports speed bag. I'm still trying to decide if I like punching on this bag. For me, it just doesn't have a good rebound. And I'm spoiled by my Aussie BFF bag being so responsive – it simply has a good 'bounce' to it. And my yellow Title bag is the same.

    Anyway, I think you'll notice that I'll start to lag behind and then I have to struggle to catch up to the beat. It's because the bag is so dead. For me, anyway. But, I will continue to workout on it. Because it really works me.
