    Punching at the Genesis Orlando Sportsplex

    The Orlando Sportsplex (Genesis Gyms) has two XMark speed bag platforms. The Ringside bag is mine (might do a full review soon) and it's on an Hunter "Pro" Swivel. I know that's blasphemy - but it's actually NOT THAT BAD. Mostly back/forth hitting here, but I'll put up some other clips later that show "all around the bag" punching.

      One of the benefits of that style of swivel - it's lightning fast back and forth (it's EASY).

        So, are you saying that the having a straight-line swivel is more conducive to speed and a ball is more conductive to control?

          Yes- it's easier to go fast on a back/forth type swivel. There's a bit of liberty with where exactly you connect on the bag - and it won't go flying off to the side. The ball on the other hand you must be very precise.

          For this reason, I don't plan on asking the gym to upgrade or change their swivels. there's really nobody else that hits bible style (I've showed some people, but most lose interest after a few minutes).

            Exactly! That's what makes "Bible Style" So "BEAUTIFUL".
