    The one thing that's robbing you of speed is that combo heavy bag & speed bag stand, You need to install a speed bag platform on your wall, All the shaking and excessive movement, and vibration those stands have robs you of all your energy, also some bags are just slow.

      Agree with "ventanakaz" also makes control harder. Also just an observation the wing nuts should be on the back side of the drum.

        My very first bag was the TKO in the picture on virtually the same stand/platform. Not a conducive combination for a joyful speed-bagging experience.

          That is if you can mount a platform on the wall. Yes this type of stand by it's design has a lot of vibration when it is used. There are ways of further stabilizing it, it's described elsewhere on these boards.It would be a good idea to install the bolts so that the wing nuts are on top. Believe it or not, the definite possibility of a miss hit could result in you hitting those, and as my high school gym teacher would say "that don't feel purrty".

            What would be a decent bag/size?

              As the other guys pointed out, The wing nuts, But more importantly are the heads of the bolts you have exposed on your Drum, Those bolts are gonna tear up your bag quickly and might throw the bag off canter when the belly of the bag hits them, You need to have them counter sunk into the drum so their not exposed, Mine are counter sunk and I also covered the holes with tape, You can probably use ratcheting straps to help with all the excessive movement and throw one or two karate canvas squared bags on top for vibration, I have two on top of mine, But I also put the sand inside plastic bags so the sand doesn't leak though of the canvas, I found that sand worked better than weights for vibration, Also the karate canvas bags have the metal eyelits around the perimeter of the square to hang the bags for punching or kicking, You can use them to zip tie them to your platform so they stay put and don't fall off, Try this before buying a bag.

                Didn't notice those hex heads, definitely do what ventanakaz recommends, or replace them with at least carriage head bolts. Otherwise the hex heads will shred the bag in short order.

                    You can put a sandbag on your drum to reduce vibration

                      I recommend a 6X9 My personal choice is a Cleto Reyes a Title Perlious is a forum favorite if your really on a budget an Everlast is a little light but hits good as long you don't get unlucky and get a defect

                        Hey ennis,

                        That set up is challenging for sure. I agree with all suggestions so far... the board changes, bolts etc. However I would bet if you have the most rock solid, sturdiest board in the world you are still going to "struggle" to have enjoy a great workout with that swivel.

                        Wide open u-bolt swivels like that are shaky, may rattle like crazy and are a kind of a nuisance for "Bible Style Bagging"....or hitting from all around the bag, Most especially with Side Punches. Here is a link some issues with U-bolts. https://speedbagcentral.com/speed-ba...#U-bar-swivels

                        My suggest is get a decent Ballhook Swivel. there are "a few" to choose from and to get one the fastest I suggest "Thrasher" https://www.thethrasherhouse.com/shop
                        Several of the other ball-hook models are out of production at the moment with no date of return.

                        As for a decent bag at a reasonable price, all of these (link) are good, https://www.titleboxing.com/punching...per-speed-bags
                        with my personal favorite the 8x5 yellow and 9x6 red. ( I have not used the 4x7..nor would I with that shape)

                        another bag I highly recommend is https://balazsboxing.com/en/speed-ba..._8_extra_small
                        This 8x5 is very fast, but it does feel "heavier" on the hands than some other brands.

                        below is a picture of an older model floor stand I use to have and this shows the how I used "luggage straps" to add more stability.

                        This video link shows it in action. I shot this in may 1996. Even with the luggage straps pulled as tight possible you can see the board shaking like crazy. So luggage straps will only "help"... but not "solve" a stability problem.

                          I bought s smaller bag but i cant get the speed up. How precise does the swivel have to be. My clevis pin is loose and sloppy.

                            The Swivel is extremely important, You can try a Ball-hook swivel but you'll probably have trouble at first until you get used to the swivel, most everybody on here use a ball-hook swivel, BTW those exposed bolts are going to tear up you bag faster than usual, You have to do as much as you can to stabilize your setup.

                              Here is a cheap but decent swivel on ebay, which will speed things up some. The hook will eventually strip out of the plastic ball, but you can super glue it back in.
