    Hi Guys my name is Mark, thank you for having me.

    I’m 12 years old , I have the rank of CGN blackbelt 1st degree, I train several hours a day. I’m really liking the speedbag and amazed by the work you all do. Here’s a short vid i did and I would appreciate any feedback or tips (especially side punches).

    my setup is really fast for boxing and I notice everyone is using old skool ball swivels, I can’t find one and don’t really know what to look for so and help/ suggestions would be appreciated.

    Wow....just wow.

    Welcome Mark, you definitely have the right stuff! Thank you for posting, keep em coming! I’m afraid you are too advanced to take advice from me. I will defer to the sage veterans. You will receive some excellent feedback here.

      Great video Mark!

      From a tip on here, I learned that the plastic Everlast ball swivel is still available directly from Everlast.com. Not listed on the website, I had to call, and ask for part number 4440U, they're 5 bucks each, and $6.95 shipping. I think they'll let you buy a few at a time.

      I'm new, just made the switch a couple weeks ago. Came from LMF swivel like yours. It's my first ball swivel, never tried the Arc or Deville or any other, so it seems just fine to me. I used it as-is awhile. Not nearly as much slower as I'd expected. Hardly at all. Or, I was just busy adjusting and improving my accuracy (it has) so didn't really notice.

      Then I found an old Everlast metal ball swivel on ebay (they're on there a lot), and switched out the plastic to the metal ball, like Alan (Speedbag) details in some thread here that I cannot find now.

      Except on bags with very thick loops - I opted to file the opening a bit, but I guess you could also just really mash it in there.

      Good luck, and nice to have another 408er here

              Hi guys

              Just to be clear, my dad is Bigmark408, he opened this account for me to be legit since I’m 12 years old.

              On Instagram I’m #408mark_tkd I hope this is ok.

              I’ve been reading lots of posts and watching vids of you all , one person here has helped me with lots of information and tip on IG and it’s much appreciated. ♥️

              a big part of my martialarts training was to always give back and honor mt teachers by helping others, locally I have some highly athletic adults I train and also teach TKD at P.A.L. , I teach kids that have heart but not money.

              I’m about working hard for a strong me and helping others that really want to put in the work to better themselves.

              I started out my journey with humble equipment and competed and beat many of the high dollar fighters, my dad always taught me to focus on being strong and competent and NOT the color of a belt, that it’s not the belt but the person who wears it.

              I come here as a “white belt bagger” ready to listen and learn.

                Wow! Very impressive!

                ​​​​​​Do yourself a favor and buy the speed bag bible book and DVD.

                    Impressive video! You are more advanced than a "white belt bagger".
