    Title Gyro Balanced 8x5

    Here is the Title gyro balanced 8x5. I bought this bag hoping it would be like my old everlast gyro balanced 4204 (it also was an 8x5). This bag is not like it. It is heavier on the hands, and a bit of a slow moving bag (although that could be the swivels fault -the plastic ballhook is not the fastes swivel). Anyway, this bag is built well, like my tuf-wear. But I don't know what in the hell is so gyro-balanced about it. My 4200 is also gyro-balanced and it is completely different (in a better way). My first impression is not too thrilled, but I will give the bag some time, and maybe a different swivel will help. By the way, this 8x5 bag is smaller than the everlast 8x5 bag.

    Okay, so I pumped a little more air in the bag and gave it a good beating, and it was moving a little faster. The rebounds are good and the leather is soft. This is actually a good bag, and it is even smaller than the everlast 6x4.
    I was disappointed at first because I was expecting a smaller version of my 4200. I still think this bag is a tuf-wear in disguise.

      I hit the everlast gyro balanced 4200 with the red plastic beaded seam (like this one) for many years and I found that I had to slightly overinflate it to get the panels out enough to flatten the red beaded seam. Otherwise the seam was always up on a slight ridge that screwed up the recoil and rebound angles. Once the seams got beaten down around the board/fist contact point it seemed to get a bit better, but a new bag always took a bit of breaking in. That also helped punch out some "warping" of the bag when first inflated, and that happened a lot.
