      I've been toying with buying a Big Blue for some time now..
      Just when I think I'm out, they puuuull me back in!

      Appears to be a very long loop on that bag, but still might have to bite the bullet.

        Not a big fan of Big Blue. Even with a bladder transplant it is kind of a dud. But it is work to keep it going so there's that.

          I think it was ventanakaz who used a zip tie to shorten the loop, somewhere around here is a photo of what he did

            You in a rather direct way (answered my questions) talked me out of picking one up before especially when mentioning that even with a bladder swap it still doesn't want to dance. And there's the loop issue as well.

            Perhaps I should learn to differentiate between wanting a Blue speed bag and wanting a Title Big Blue speed bag.

              The issue has become that this is now the only what we call an extra large striking bag on the market now, since Genesport has gone out of business, other than some custom made bags. It's principle drawback is that it was designed to be used on a 24 inch platform. It is short and squat, and doesn't respond like the old school bags. Large striking bags that required a minimum 30" platform were made by most of the major suppliers up through the late 1960's into the 1970's. By the 1980's Spalding, McGregor and Wilson were no longer making them, and Sears had switched from leather bags to pleather, and then vinyl. Hutchinson Bros. Leather Co. AKA Hutch had also ceased production as well(their smallest bags were closer to what Everlast and Tufwear were selling as medium size). Of the more recent products, I've found the TufWear S109 (10x14) to give you the best workout. These were made up through the 1980's. It also appears to be relatively rare now. Like most of the old line made in Nebraska it takes a lot to keep it moving (this was true regardless of the size of the bag, they were all made with very heavy leather). The line was briefly resurrected by Title, but it appears that the name is being used by a firm in Great Britain now.

                  That's not what they say behind your back.
