    Is it repairable?

    Balaz Speed Bag, bought one for its claims of balance and not needing repairs. It lasted a few years and honestly satisfied , but it’s lost some air in my last session and now can be heard leaking. I can hit it and maintain some speed, but it’s not the same. Can I fix it or should I buy a different bag? Which bag brand should I look into?

    Balasz has some awesome bags and I love the shape of them. Ronispeedbag is one of the best bags in the game now and are very easy on the hands and the craftsmanship is second to none. Definitely check him out !!!

      I can’t help but feel like this was a plug for a product. So I’m guessing that the answer to the question is no, that it is not repairable and secondly, Ronispeedbag is a speed bag worth looking into.

        I''m not familiar with this particular Balaz bag, although I seem to recall hearing about it. I take it that there is no inflation valve, and no way of accessing the interior of the bag? What kind of material is it made of? I see that they no longer offer this bag, I'd say it was not a success, time to move on.

          For what it is worth. I have never owned a Balasz but everything I have read has been positive. 1. Pull the balder and check for leaks easily replaceable. 2. Absolutely agree with 'Mickey Dix" , this is only the opinion of someone who has used a small variety of bags two of them being" Ronispeedbag" beautifully constant on the rebound, so soft on the hands and absolutely the best at Quality Craftsmanship.

            I thought you were asking about a brand of bag to look into. They are a few guys that repair worn out speedbags but it seems pretty difficult depending on the problem . I hate changing bladders I couldn’t imagine repairing one. I am not plugging any company I am just explaining my experience.

              As I recall, this bag was supposed to be permanently inflated, with no way of inflating it or changing the bladder. There was no laces or zipper to access the interior of the bag. Yes, Balaz has a very good reputation , first rate I would say. This just was a interesting concept that just didn't work out.

                Education, Education, Education. Love this site, you learn so much from the best of the best. I had no idea that the bag was sealed.
                Great Catch
