    Thank you for that info guys …I could kick myself because there was a very nice looking 4200 on EBay a couple months ago and I sent an offer but she wanted a little more and I gave up on it , at the time I had no idea how hard they are to come by in that condition, in the one from The US and the one from China …looking back now I would pay double what she was asking at the time because it was in such good condition , because I haven’t been able to find one since. It’s a frustrating collection to get started haha
    I think I mentioned on here do not buy the Made in China 4200 but I'm gonna have to go back on my word and say if you come across a 4200 that's in good shape without any busted seams regardless if it's made in usa or china and depending on how much you want one, Buy it. I paid 60 bucks for my recently made in china 4200 and I have no regrets, Like I mentioned before it just alittle bit slower than my USA 4200 and from testing out the different bladders in the china bag, The Enkay # 4 6x9 bladder works the fastest in the china 4200 bag, Happy Hunting

    Hey Dutchman, I recently bought a made in China 4200, I only bought it because the 4200 series are hard to come by, The last 4200 that I bought from a sporting goods store had the hard welting, and that was along time ago when I bought that bag, All the ones i bought from the same sporting goods store before that bag had the leather welting, I never looked at the bottom of that bag to see where it was made from, I just assumed it was made in the USA because it was everlast, it probably was made in China and looking back now this must have been the time period when everlast went downhill and had everything made in China, I also remember when I did wear that bag out (I only owned one speed bag at a time) and going back to the same sporting goods not finding any everlast speed bags let alone a swivel, Now getting back to the made in China bag. I knew I was taking a chance but to my surprise when I got the bag it turned out the welting was leather, The performance of the USA 4200 and the China 4200 is that the USA bag is faster than the China bag but the China bag isn't a dud and is still fun to bag on, the other things I noticed between the bags is the China bag is heavier than the USA bag and the China bags linings weaving isn't as tightly woven as the USA bag, So if anyone does come across a China 4200 you will be taking a chance at what the welting will be made of. The other thing I wanted to mention was way back when I did buy that last 4200 from the sporting goods store is that I didn't notice that bag being any slower than the previous ones I bought. Just my two cents of observance and me being very picky at my speed bags lol
