    looking forward to some video's.
    Video to come soon, any tips on how to improve would be awesome. I just ordered a Rival 10x7 bag. So when that comes in all put up my first video

    Yeah Tim is right, I bought it pre-cut like that at lowes for $16. It works great, I'm thinking about building the exact same setup in my garage for the summer

    I don't know how he did it, but Lowes sells pine rounds that look very similar. They cost about $10 USD if memory serves.

    how did u cut such a perfect circle like that? i made mine like a "U" shape because i didnt know how to cut a perfect circle like that and im thinking about making another board for my sister who recently started boxing so i finially got her to try my setup and shes fallen in love but its way to high for her and she stuck standing on a foot stool and she said she wants her own then i can show her things as we both work. sorry little off topic but im just very pumped that shes finally hitting because ive been telling her for over a year to try it and she just wouldnt.

    They are 20 inch shelving brackets from lowes, cost $8 a piece. And the 24 x 1 inch table top, also from lowes, cost $16. I built this custom one because the pre-made stands would be too big for my bedroom. So this is just the right size and height.

    Well andy302, since you ask me, from the little experience i have with speedbags and speedbag setups i can tell you the following:

    The problem that is causing you a slow rebound could be in the setup you use, in the way you hit the bag, or in the swivel. I would suggest you try to make the setup as solid as possible, make your technique as focused as you can (will improve over time) and try different swivels and speedbags in your training.

    5 total thats what i mean its realy slow ive got sand bags on top of the board theres hardly any vibration that why i think its the swivel ive orded the title deluxe pro swivel so hopefully that will be a lot better

    Is that five rebounds total, or off the back side of the board? Is the bag inflated adequately? It should be firm, but not rock hard. Generally speaking unless there was some really poor machining done on the swivel that style should give you fairly rapid rebounds.
