    Honestly, the speed bag itself looks fine to me. Alan's speed on most of his clips is mostly due to skill and technique. It takes practice, lots and lots of practice. Practice several times a week and in a month or two you will be surprised what you can do.

    In regards to the swivel you have, that is my least favorite kind, but I did learn on a similar model for several months. It should suffice for most of the techniques.

    Maybe if you can post a video of your technique Alan or someone else can comment.

      Yes, you definitely have to keep your hands moving quicker.

            It doesn't seem to make a difference on mine, in regards to which side to hit. My bag tends to rotate around and before I know I'm hitting a different side anyways.

            Posting a clip would probably let us give you some better input.

            I will soon have the ability to upload video as well...

                speed bag treatment

                there are various products to treat and protect leather products.

                Years ago, when I carried my speed bag to a club/gym to hit every day, and where many different hands hit it, I did indeed put a little leather conditioner on it. Normally I dried it off after a "hot workout", let it set for a while, then rubbed the product (I used a type of Mink Oil ) on while the bag was inflated. It kept the leather pliant and soft. But those were older, Kangaroo leather bags. (even said so on the bag..). For these later day modern synthetic brands, I don't know what the best product would be, but if your bag gets wet or has hot air blowing on it during ventilation, I would treat it occassionally. Kind of like polishing your shoes.....

                I also learned to keep it inflated, as the inflation/uninflation process tends to crinkle the leather and seemed to increase the cracking rate.

                Living in Texas, where horses rule, Many stores carry Saddle and leather protection products

                For the best bag care, I also suggest you rotate your bags occassionally. (change and hit another one...)

                It's a great question. Bag care is often forgotten.

                  It’s really light... so light that’s difficult to keep it going at a constant speed. It slows down soon and you must hit the bag repetitively, fastly without pause. After a little training, I punch with smaller and faster movements and now the bag ‘flies’ under the drum (thanks Alan for your instructions!!!).

                  The shape is lightly thinner than the yellow bag, but I really like it.

                  Tim, have also you it same feeling with your new 8x5 yellow bag?
                  I had the same issue with the exact same bag. When I first used it, I thought the thing was a useless joke because I was so used to my 11x8 Everlast bag which was so much heavier. After going back to it after a few months, I realize it just takes a different hit altogether, and because of it's light weight it doesn't rebound as hard...
