  • Title just announce a new line of "Genuine" leather speed bags

    http://www.titleboxing.com/limited-e...ther-speed-bag

    The previous line of super speed bags was leather, right? Odd they would add the word genuine like that.

      I don't understand what baseball glove micro suede tanned leather is. All the baseball gloves I've ever used were smooth and rather thick cowhide. Micro suede is a term for synthetic leather. Genuine is rather meaningless. WTF are they selling? I won't be the first buying it. Somebody please post a review at some point.

            Looks like they compiled random leather keywords and made a meaningless description. I'm almost tempted to pick it up just to see what it's really made of. It's also a unique looking bag.

              Brilliant marketing I say! Well, good enough to get me to place an order at least.

                I am inclined to assume the "Genuine Leather" name indicates the leather is actual leather as you would presume it is. Most or all other bags are made with bonded leather, otherwise known as split leather, bicast leather, coated leather, etc.

                There is a big difference between natural leather hide and all other mass produced leather products. FU China. Again.

                  I think Title should hire me, because I make this s**t look good.

                    Stevie, did you get your XS? I'd like to hear your and other's thoughts before I post anything about it.

                      Yes I did. It's pretty similar to my title classic xs (which I expected) but it seems to hit just a touch heavier/slower. I have a replacement bladder on the way so hopefully that will make it all good. All my bags currently have stock bladders.

                        I replaced the stock bladder with an orange Title/Enkay bladder. It weighed 6.5 oz with the stock bladder and about 6 oz with the orange bladder. I played with the inflation pressure a bit and found that I needed 5.5-6 psi to give this bag a decent rebound. At 4 psi it was pretty dead. Its a pretty bag, for sure. But its my first small bag, so I'm still getting used to it.

                          It does feel like the leather is a little thicker on the new bag than the classic although I didn't unlace the classic and do a direct comparison. They both have the stock bladders and in terms of hitting them the new one definitely feels a tad heavier and slower than the classic so you might like it better. Definitely doesn't feel like hitting air.

                            If anyone is still interested in these bags they just lowered the price! $24.99 at Title's website. I ordered a 6x9. My current 6x9 is an Everlast banana, so this should give me a nice change. The 6x9 is brown, cream and tan. I think it looks pretty cool.

                              Bastards! I bought the genuine XS at $50 and I'm not very happy with it.

                              ventanakaz, do you know what the Pro Mex Victoria sizes translate to in inches?
