    Just an update on my progress, for anyone who cares. Its been 6 weeks now. A few mess-ups, and still some form issues, but not bad.

    aad, very nice, enjoyed watching the rhythm. Looks like you have quality speed bags. Even at a distance the leather looks good. Also noticed that your loop is long, do you prefer that way?

      Lookin' good. Lots of linking, done picture perfect, some F-Roll, lots of double punches, and even some single elbow strikes. Pretty good repertoire for only 6 weeks!

        Thanks guys, I like the feel of linking, also helps me set the bag straight if itr starts to veer. Man, speed bags are like baseball cards, i just keep wanting to collect more. att, the swivel has a little piece of leather replacing the metal hook, so it looks longer than the swivel itself actually is. Here's what I did: http://www.speedbagforum.com/forums/...ead.php?t=2310

            Great job. Especially the linking.Your setup looks good. You in a one car garage? If so, do you share a wall with your neighbor or is your garage on your own property? I ask because you don't have your back to the door. I had to set mine up with my back to the door. I live in a condo and the garage shares walls on both sides and I was being th "good neighbor" when I installed my platform. Yours looks solid enough that if you did share a wall, the vibration wouldn't be felt on the other side. I'm thinking of swtching to one of the side walls because I hate having my back to the door even though it's closed.

              Looking very good for just 6 weeks under the board. Keep bagging, you'll be amazed at how fast you progress.

                Lookin Good AA, What your doing looks really good! Solid technique.
                Nice platform, looks solid as a rock. What kind of bag were you hitting?
                Looks like you've got a killer collection of them. Which ones do you like best?
                Keep up the good work!

                  My setup is in a detached garage, so the neighbors aren't really an issue. I have two Balazs I-box platforms with a bag of sand on top, and they are pretty solid. I actually made a couple platforms myself that I will post pictures of tonight.

                  I'm hitting a Lonsdale Small (lonsdaleusa.com) in the video. I love that bag; it seems to be a good balance between speed and weight.

                  I like the Everlast 6x4, and I just got a Pro-Mex 9x6 from Title that I really like. Those two and the Lonsdale are my favorites.

                  Side Note: They have the Everlast 6x4 in stock at BoxingDepot.com, I think solid black is the only color though.

                      Here's a sequence of photos of the process of building one of my platforms. It is all heavy gauge steel, welded. I drilled holes using my Balazs template, so it is compatible with the Balazs drums. www.thedukedoctrine.com/balazstemp.pdf

                      After a coat of paint, and some unistrut for height adjustment, it is ready for the drum. I have some pics of this completed platform, and another one I made, I will post those when I get home.


                      I should also add that my family owns a commercial window framing company (www.dukeglass.com) , and one of the guys "needed something to do." You'll see him sanding the edges in one of the pics.

                          Here's some pics of the platforms I made. The white drum I made with a sheet of plexiglass, with some plywood sandwiched between. That thing is rock solid. Also one pic of the setup in my garage.

                            Damn, that's some nice work, aad03. If you ever want to sell (or make another) one of those beauties, I'd sure be interested in buying one.
