  • Shortening Loop

    First attempt at shortening a loop. Turned out well, I maybe could have shorted it a bit more.

    I figured I'd add this question to this thread. My old Everlast bags, the 4213 for example, have an extremely narrow loop. I find that my swivels( mostly newer) seem to be designed to accommodate today's wider loops. Anyone know any tricks to make these more stable
    I'm considering replacing with wider loops.

      I just did one of my Contenders. Makes a big difference!

        How have you shortened the loop? I have never seen that before.

          Hi Mickey, I did some searching on the forum.

          https://speedbagforum.com/forums/for...p-a-faster-bag

          hopefully that link works, I studied it to learn. You get a stitch remover, some Chicago screws. Remove the old loop and drill or punch new holes in the bag and/or loop.

          hope this helps

            If you can track down my 'Practice Clips' thread, you should find a clip of me hitting it with the original loop.

            here is a link to how it reacts after shortening loop.

                Did the baby Aries today, you can see the difference between the two factory loops and the modified loop.
