    Your favorite speed bag?

    Looking to try some new speed bags. I had a everlasting dura hide that ripped in almost 2 weeks, the leather one was a little better and I really liked the kangaroo bag but the batter had a slow leak. Also the pro mex bag was to slow. Any opinions? Looking for a small or fast bag. Just something all around goods.... Thanks

    My fav is a NOS Ringside 9x6 from Ralph (here on the forum):


    It's just the right size, great quality leather (easy on the hands) and fast. I did have to replace the bladder with one of the Title rubber replacements. Love this bag (and size).

    Ralph is a great guy, ships very fast and has great product!

    My other fav is the 'Peanut ball' from Lonsdale....

        I'd have to go with the newest TITLE BLACK® Pro Speed Bag. Great shape, action, rebound and feel on hands.



        I think Skunk likes it also...

          When I want to go "old school" I like hitting the Everlast 4205 from the 1950's from my collection. The other two that I like are a 6x9 Ringside from the 1980's or the Tufwear VSB 112 7x10 from the 1970's.

            At $29.99, the Title Standard Pro Yellow Bag is more than likely the best bang for your buck bag you can buy today.

            I like the feel, and consistency of this bag A LOT more than other bags i've used that cost up to, and more than twice the price of this Title bag.


            If you want to upgrade this bag a few notches in the speed department it will only cost $3.99 for the Title replacement bladder.

            The Title Black Pro Bag seems cool. it seems to have the features a lot of baggers, including myself really like: Fat belly that is low on the bag. the short soft loop. This coming black friday sale, hopefully Title will drop the price by $15 to $20.

              TITLE BLACK® Pro Speed Bag

              I just received the 5x8 TITLE BLACK® Pro Speed Bag and man, this is definitely my new favorite. It use to be my Title gyro balanced 5X8 but it's second place now. and the Cleto's a distant third. I wish i liked the Cleto bags better because they are so well crafted and the tri- color are stunning... but, they don't even come close to this new Title.

                    lonsdale

                    when you talk about Lonsdale peanut bags are you referring to the brown one? is it the same as the Lonsdale multi-colored ones?
                    I think the multi-colored ones were made for America and are no longer in circulation. can anyone confirm or deny anything to do with Lonsdale bags?

                      I dont know about the other colors i got the brown one and i love it !!!
                      Could be that the other colors are different ( leather ??? ) or maybe made from a different factory but i dont know just a guess . here is a thread about the bags

                        lonsdale

                        the ones that I am referring to have horizontal stitching vs vertical. might be nice to not have a seam to hit.

                          I really love my Peanut Ball.... here it is next to another favorite of mine!


                          Mrs. Mitts was kind enough to purchase one for me in the UK and send it over... interesting how the "Peanut Ball" is printed in a different location then the other picture posted. I did get this years ago now. (it's really beat-up these days)
