      I can't comment on that swivel for I have never hit it that I remember, but the BBE bag should be a good product. The ones I sampled at several sporting good shows had nice shape, rebound and felt good on the hands.

          HI Andy.

          I gotta tell ya, that's a first for me. I have seen similiar center post down setups, but that one is a thing of beauty. I prefer the stabilizing bars out wider toward the edge of the board, where the for of the punch will land, but until you hit on it, there is no way of telling.

          punch on it a bit and tell us how it works.

              I would say "GOOD" is relative, but the truth is I have not found single vertical pole wall mounts, or center post down units to be as stable as I prefer. The problem is all the contact force of the bag rebound is away from the support pole(s) and the board tend to "give" with either a large bag or full bore punching. That is why I prefer the two pole and two horizontal bars support set ups. The bag makes contact close to the overhead support bars and the whole system absorbs the shock better with less rattling or vibration. For your setup, I would suggest two small sand bags on top, one in the rear and one over the front to help hole the board stable. But that is just a guess on my part. Your particular unit might be more stable than the ones I have hit. Good Luck with it.

                    Practice, practice, practive... give it a week and things should be better.

                    It takes time to adjust to a new setup.

                      Andy302 - Did the new swivel and bag arrive as well, or are you hitting the original bag and swivel? If you are still using the orig. swivel and bag, wait for the new stuff to arrive and see if there is any change.

                      If you are now hitting the new bag and swivel, Tim is right. Just keep on practicing, you'll see the difference.

                      When I started hitting my Title classic 8x5, I was disappointed with it. I went out and bought the Yellow Title 8x5. I really liked the second one. But you know what, after a couple of months, I find myself hitting the red classic more so than the yellow. Go figure.

                      Point is - keep at it and you'll adjust to it.

                      Good luck and keep us posted.

                          what swivel are you using now? I know of one swivel that just wont work. I looks like a fake ball hook swivel and is usually made by TKO. If you have been hitting the bag for a couple days now and theres still no change you most likely have a problem. A link to a website so we can see you current swivel would be great so we can give ya a hand. Also i cant say i have used either a bbe bag or golds gym bag. do they feel okay to u?

                            posted pics of my swivels as you can see there not good i think thats why im not getting the speed there to big and bulky so ive orded the title deluxe pro swivel hopefully that will be much better what do you think? the golds gym bag feels really nice to hit thats a mediom bag and the bbe is a small they both feel good to punch

                              Ya those swivels are very long which makes the rebound are longer and thus cause a slow bag but saying that should still be okay to hit. Is the problem just speed or does the swivel seem to lock up every once in a while?

                                no it doesnt lock up but its real slow lucky to get 5 bounces even when i hit it hard the board solid no vibration ive also got sand bags on top of the board one at the front and one at the back. Is the title deluxe pro a good swivel alot of members here seem to use it?im also thinking my platform might to thin maybe a thicker heavier platform might help
