    Some of the pictures we baggers post of our bags (LOL) and setups are really great pictures. I've used many of them for desktop wallpaper. Not just my own. Those Genesport bags are very distinct looking speed bags, Rusty.

    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 have two speed bag guardian angels, bag benefactors as it were, that gave me 3 of the 4 bags in this photo. For size comparison, the Cleto on the right is 6x9. Notice the variance in the leather on the Genesports. All are very soft and supple to the touch, and of apparently identical high quality construction.

    Zaz got it...perfect!! I rolled the dice on it. You never know until you have it in your hands. But, rest assured its brand spanking new. The seller is super cool too. We had some issues with the Australia Post. Apparently they still use some variation of the Pony Express in some regions?

    My estimated delivery time was pretty far out as well. It arrived way early. Here is how long it took to get to me after departing Melbourne. Hope you get yours early as well.

    And I just have the standard Bradley ball. I'm sure some of you noticed the two that were up on ebay over the past few weeks. What you see on the hook is one. I'm hoping someone on the forum grabbed the other? It was $67 total shipped.

    I can only imagine how the Pro Ball must feel, but I will soon find out.

    I did see that Bradley on eBay. I decided to hold out for the Pro. I just wish they made orange.

    It feels amazing to hit. As far as currently produced bags, this is the standard for quality in my collection so far.

    The 4200 from Zaz is my new favorite. The one I found here locally is second. I already have my guard dog trained to protect them.

    Zaz,

    When it rains, it pours. I've been making contacts with folks who deal with estate sales. A coworker hooked me up with this dealer, who apparently often comes across vintage bags. They received this 4200 a couple days ago and I picked it up this morning.

    I'm just starting to get my local pipeline going...taking over the city. Bags never sleep.

    Ok, problem solved. I had an extra Everlast bladder and it fits perfectly. This thing is a joy to hit. Very soft, no gloves required.

    Someone is bound to chime in on repairing those original plastic bladders, think I remember a post where Alan and others referred to patching them many times, if it is repairable. Since the bladder was disintegrated in mine removing the nipple was only trouble and I just yanked it with pliers.
