    Everlast "Powerlock" speed bag - anybody tried this?

    I gave up on Everlast speed bags 10 years ago. BUT this new(?) model claims POWERLOCK: "Its unique Powerlock technology makes it easier than ever to adjust the bag's tension, so you can customize the intensity of your workout."

    Any body know how it works? Is it just marketing hype?

    I don't know, they say it's actually made out of leather. The only way I can figure you can adjust it is by varying the air pressure. Not exactly a new idea.....

      I'm betting on Marketing Hype. In my experience the only way to adjust the bag's tension is by either adding or remover air from the bladder, which normally involves a needle inserted. I don't see any special "technology" that allows for increasing or decreasing the bags pressure without using the air valve. AND - if this technology does exist, why does it need a standard air valve at the bottom.

      Hmmm.

        What is with the banana shaped bag, i don't get why so many went with that shape, imo a tear drop bag of the same size will always be faster than the banana shape, Bag Tension ??? Where's the Tension. I'm so confused LoL
