  • ... the need for speed!

    I read this blog article on the Jim Bradley website today, and it mentions this forum. They have an interesting view on USA speed baggers...



    A lot slower!!! Are we going to sit for this? Let's see some blazing speed vids! Just your fastest punching style, front-fist roll, pulling rope, whatever.

    That has to be a misprint or mistake of some sort. They can't be serious! seriously, they can't!!! When I read that little tidbit this Canadian almost spit his coffee all over his/my keyboard.

      There used to be some videos of speed ball competitions "Down Under", yes they are really into speed, much more so than control.

        This is an example of Aussie style, from the Jim Bradley website.

          The way he hits the bag must be hard on the shoulders...

                Nope. John took down all references to the PPM contests and videos...... ....I assume because he did not want to continue to promote another vaporized product that would not longer be available. That happens a lot in the speed bag world. Just try to get a Jumpcannon Ballhook (also called (powermill, evil swivel)) or Deville swivel...or a Speed Demon.

                (actually I may have the worlds largest collection of that last one since I'm pretty sure I bought all of Title Boxing's last units when I smelled the rat of it's imminent demise ....)

                  Very interesting. Does the iPhone app for the Speed Demon still work on modern iOS?

                  But when I said "speed demon vids" I was really asking people to post really fast punching to show the Aussies that the forum guys are at least as fast as they are.

                      I have no idea. I don't have an I-phone and never used the phone app

                      Ah, got it. To me the term "Speed Demon" always links to "THE" Speed Demon digital counter.

                        So, nothing? Nobody here can punch fast? Well I guess the Aussies are right, and we really are A LOT SLOWER than them.
