    First Post, long-time bagger...

    I'm Bob from Central FL and have been hitting a speed bag on and off since I was 10 (about 40 years ).

    Found this forum searching for a smaller bag to replace my "mid-size" Everlast, which sprung a leak. Just got back into it, too, and was starting to get my wind back. I'll probably attempt to fix it since it is in very good condition.

    The bag and board are at my shop, where I can make all the noise I want, any time of the day or night! I have it bolted to a pallet rack and it is pretty sturdy. Have a "master link" type swivel that seems to work pretty good.

    I also have an 80lb heavy I need to hang... I have a stand for both but it just takes up too much room.

    I'd love the bring both bags to the house so my 13yo dot and 11yo son can learn but the wife is anti-exercise. (long story)

    PS: here is a pic that I had--I'll have to get one of better quality. The hanging arm is from the aforementioned heavy bag stand, through bolted to the pallet rack. Fan is conveniently close for cooling...
