    The Jim Bradley folks are really cool. They offered to send a couple free bladders with a bag to offset some of the shipping cost. I work in air cargo and have a few contacts who who travel to Australia and New Zealand, so I inquired about in store sales. While that is not an option, their factory is about 10 min from the Melbourne airport. I could have my order picked up there. Decisions, decisions.

      This is my current fav bag. Maybe its because I just got it on eBay for $7.50. Maybe because its the new kid. Or maybe its because of the super-soft moccasin leather, inverted seams, beautiful camel color leather, original soft leather lace, great balance and kick-ass bounce! Other than that, I know nothing of this bag or the Genesport brand. Dutchman, please comment. It is a 8"x5" bag, which I assume is rare for that vintage.

        Oh, what we have apparently lost from the Great White North. From my limited observations (I've only seen three Genesport bags) they are well made of high quality leather. While they seemed to have specialized in larger bags (their output seems to have been aimed at martial artists and believe it or not hockey players) this size is about the smallest of what was offered. The inventory of the firm was liquidated at a martial arts supply shop in Montreal back in December 2017

            I am not surprised. George Carlin said hockey is just a modified form of boxing.

              Went to a game this past Tuesday night. There were a few unscheduled boxing matches that broke out. A lot of "bang" for the buck.

                  What is the official size of the Atomic pictured? The stats on your current fav look and sound very appealing. Seeing it on the drum looks like it would be a joy to give a go!

                    That is the S Atomic Pro (6" x 8"). Notice it is a fatboy, not a tallboy. It is extremely lightweight. I don't really like it because of the light weight, slows down a lot on a 2nd rebound, and the synthetic panels grab too much on my lacquered and epoxied drums. I can't imagine what the 4"x6" is like.

                      Does changing the original latex bladder for the Title orange change the speed and rebound of your heritage bags?

                        Zaz I had the same concern. Those bags are great right the way they come. That said; the orange bladders had no discernable negative effects whatsoever.

                            I have the same bag and i don't like it either. I should have spent 10$ more to buy a Title Perilous instead.

                              Zaz Apologies - I just double checked and I have (of all things) a stock title quick tech bladder in the large one and an orange (Enkay) in the little fella. But still that big one moves like it did originally, but hold air extremely well. Either way you will be fine in the case that you've ordered yourself a few oranges.

                              Had to clarify
