        I had one of those too, it was nearly in perfect condition, I sold it. It was to small for me, and I had my fill of small and lightweight bags, Usually if I know i'm not gonna spend time on hitting a bag or if it doesn't suit my purpose I sell it.

          So I have to correct myself, I had that same bag but an older version which had the better softer piping (welting) I was thinking about the 4204. I considered the 4200s a 6x9 the 4204s 5x8 and the 4202s 7x10s if I wrong then some of you old timers can correct me, although i'm running up onto 55 my body feels like an old timer but my mind feels like a kid, must be the work i've been doing for 34 years...Ralph

            It looks brand new!
            I might have to PM you to help me get the Everlast 4210 I found at work back in action and looking good, and a new bladder in it.

              To give some scale, here it is next to my 4213 which I know you know well. To my eye, they are equal size. I had trouble getting them to stand up next to each other so you could see that. I'll weight them both, but I want to swap out the leaky Everlast brand bladder in the 4213 first.

                I finally got more bladders in stock and swapped out the leaky everlast brand bladder in the 4213 with the identical bladder in the 4202, an Enkay Super 5. The 4202 weighs 9 7/8 oz. The 4213 weighs 9 1/8 oz.

                Now that I am comparing apples to apples, I can say the 4213 is much better. And I am surprised, given their similar shape, size, and weight. The 4202 hits much heavier and is jumpy. Jumpy as in not balanced despite the slick gyro balanced logo.

                Also the leather on this particular 4202 is thicker with more grain than my older 4200 kidskin. I highly doubt the 4202 is kidskin. Maybe it is a late period bag still technically made in USA, but with inferior, and possibly imported, leather stock.

                  Probably not imported leather, more than likely domestic, as that was about the time that the Feds forced the leather tanners to switch process due to ground and air pollution concerns, not to mention that the chemicals that were used in the tanning process are just nasty to begin with. They did , however produced a superior product.

                    Those are great looking bags, any idea what era they are from?

                      Yes you do have skills restoring bags and lacing em back up.
                      I put an Everlast snapin bladder in the 4210 I just cleaned up. It's too bouncy. I like the Title bladders better. I think I went from liking easy to hit bags to now I like a heavier bag.

                        BTW There isn't much difference between the Everlast bladders and the Title bladders (Performance wise,That's what I felt) the reason I like the title bladders better is because the nipple seemed to hold air better than the Everlast, yes the Everlast is easier to install but they don't hold air as good as the title, and I like the shape of the title better than the everlast.

                          The Everlast bladder I got from Forza was just a little larger and a little lighter/thinner than the Enkay Super 5 when uninflated. And mine suffered from the slow leak as well, from day 1. It became so annoying I had to replace it. I could not tell any diff in performance between the 2.
