  • Shorting of a Loop=A faster bag

    Here I shortened the loop on this bag, The loop was much longer, What a difference. Like night and day, The bag feels great now, I have a few more bags to do this to. Shortening this loop makes it feel kinda like the bumble bee bag

        ...My red ringside doesn't need a loop change, I shortened it up as much as possible, I could take a few close up pics for you and post them here if you want ?

          Awesome. I have always been amazed at how much faster a bag is with a short loop....just long enough for the hook to go through.

              Another bag I shortened the loop on, My new Golden Gloves bag, Now that I shortened up the loop on this bag it's just about as fast as the Heritage bag, But it feels a lot more solid. You can see the difference between the two pics

                      How do you shorten the loop?

                      Are you unstitching 1 side and re-stitching it?!?

                        shortening the strap

                        You finally got to me. I saw all of your pics of the shortened straps and finally got motivated. Ordered rivets and chicago screws and attacked my revgear. Took me about ten minutes after a you tube video of how to remove an already installed rivet. It truely does speed up the bag. I didn't think I would notice a difference but I did. You were so right. Now I have about thirty five more bags to modify. Guess I know what I will be doing in my winter downtime.

                          shorten the strap

                          I removed one side rivet and the punched a new hole where I wanted it and re riveted it. On some bags it will also take ripping out the stitching if used. The revgear had both stitching and a rivet. Use a small seam ripper for the stitching and you wont damage the strap. Happy shortening.

                            shortening the strap

                            Thanks Ralph...I have done four of my bags now and see marked improvement in both speed and rebound. No more twisting of the bag on those slightly off center hits. My peanut Lonsdale went from being an ok bag to a great bag. Really looking forward to see what some of my others do after the mod. It will become my winter project. Anyway thanks again for the motivation.

                              Shortening the strap

                              Did both my Lonsdale bags. The big one is now a treat to hit. The small one is super. I ordered a clamp for the chicago screws and a carbide bit to drill through the Kevlar reinforcing on some of the straps. Looking forward to making nice clean holes in the kevlar fabric. I completely redid my Hatton. The tongue was in upside down and the strap was lariat length. The bladder would have gone soon with the rough part of the tongue rubbing on it. The winter project is just getting started..Gues I will have to post some before and afters too.
