    I was looking back through some of my speed bag pictures and ran across the photo's from the speed bag contest on the USS Tortuga LSD46, from back in 2006. They had a classic 4200 that caught me eye and brought back memories of my old Memphis State Days in the 1970's. When you got a good one, you could not kill it. We beat them literally to death, full ripped seams and all, and still, they held air. These picks brought that all back....

    The Art of the Bag

      I was swapping bladders out again with the USA made 4200 and the China made 4200, Without bladders in the two bags the China bag is heavier, The USA bag worked well with the Enkay bladder or the Title Advanced bladder, I like the Title Advanced bladder in the USA bag, As for the China bag the Title Advanced didn't work to good in it and the Enkay was faster in that bag, I also have to point out that the China bag is slower than the USA bag but it's not a dud, it's just slower so I add an extra puff of air to speed it up.

        I put my spare Jim Bradley bladder in a 4200 and I'd say that it is my favorite. The bag is super fast with all the bladders I've tried (title advanced, enkay, original red) but the Bradley has a great bounce and is a little heavier. That's awesome you dodged the plastic seems Ventanakaz. My guess would be that they still used the leather seems in the early stages of Chinese production.

          Your probably right about the early stages of the Chinese production line as for the Bradley bladders I'm extremely curious about those bladders, are they anything like the Enkay bladders, Shape & size wise and what's the thickness compared to others, are they as thick as the title advanced bladders ???

            Tried to do a search for the Bradley bladders, all I found was the bradley bags are filled with air though the top of the bladder/bag, then from what I've seen of the bladders it looks like they have a round shape.

              The Bradley bladder is thicker and heavier and resembles a double end. The roundness is perfect for the 4200. It's almost closer to the orange Everlast bladders but better has a better bounce

                  I think I'll pass on the Bradley bladders, I've tried deb bladders in speed bags before and because of their round shapes, they don't fill in the neck area of the Speed bags or Striking bags of old, So depending on how stiff or thick the leather is, There is the potential of the Speed/Striking Bag to flex at the top neck of the bag, i'll stick with bladders that have the shape of the bag, Thanks for the pictures

                    No problem. I hear you . It is a tad longer than a deb bladder but it does leave room on the neck of most bags. It fills out the stubby 4200 pretty well though. The 4200 on the left in the previous pictures has the Bradley bladder in it.

                            It was mentioned that the late model Everlast 4200 bags were made in China, not the Jim Bradley bags
