(EDIT) if your on Instagram I could probably to a short video of me hitting the bags, Let me know ?
    Sure that would be great , thanks man…my Instagram name is thall4500

    Thats great info , thanks for that. Do both of those come with latex bladders ? It looks like they do but Its hard to find any information about that brand, and forget about finding any videos on youtube , I'm surprised they arent more popular because they look like really nice bags.

    I have both, have some pictures and threads on here about them as for the Gil bag that might be a hit or miss I had a blue/black Gil bag that I sold to a member on here, it hits kinda like the everlast 4200 but with more weight behind it, Probably do to the double lining on the inside and the leather, I bought another Gil bag with the Mexican flag colors that I wanted, Now that bag had a longer loop and a smaller belly, Felt like a dud compared to the blue/black bag i had, So I tried different bladders with that bag and my 4 inch round patch of leather on the inside, What I finally ended up with was using a Title large Advanced bladder and revamping the loop, (made it very short) it hits alot better than how it originally came, but I'm not sure if it hits like the blue/black bag i had, on another point the Gil bags take along time to break in, Now onto the Necalli bag, Out of the box the bag is very light with soft leather, The only draw back is that I don't like lightweight bags (my personal taste) and the bag has a more banana shape than the Gil bag so if you compared the same materials, Leather and lining and loop, A teardrop bag will be faster than a banana bag of the same materials, That being said I do like the Necalli bag better than the Cleto Reyes, in Conclusion what I did with the Necalli bag was to change the bladder to a Enkay # 4 bladder and added my 4 inch round patch of leather to the inside bottom of the bag and also shortened the loop, I have pictures of the bag on here with original length loop and with the modified loop.

    Gil & Necalli bags

    I’m looking to try out one of the Gil or Necalli speed bags , any thoughts about either of those ? They look really nice but I can’t tell if they would hit very well or if they would be heavy. Curious to hear what people think about those two brands.
