Lol!!....Try it it works!!!!.......No glue to make a mess, also makes it easier to re use a bladder if a bag splits!!!

My pump bleeds air if you are not actively pumping, so finger's method is difficult for me. I have done it that way for small bags.

I'm from Liverpool. I ordered my Title bag from Title USA website. Mines made in India. Bought about a month ago.

My apologies. I've got Ampro sparring gloves and they're made in India. My speedbag is made in China 👍🏻

Thanks. Yes, they're all probably made in China now. Was the one you got regular shaped? Did it move okay?

One of the "phases" I think many of us go through is expecting these small bags to be bouncy and straight. The leather is relatively thick, and even if you put in a nice orange EverLast bladder, they feel a little unresponsive and weird. The yellow (small) bags are not typically graceful, and it takes a little time to appreciate them for what they are. One of my favorite small bags is the Title Black Speed Bag ($79.99). It has a very thin skin, and with a bouncy bladder, is very responsive. You're going to have to learn to love those yellow bags for exactly what they are - and you can have a lot of fun with them.

Which probably isn't surprising as they were both lop-sided to varying degrees (see pictures of the 2nd one). I noticed that they were made in China, obviously because it's cheaper to have them made there. [I had the same issue with two Everlast 9" x 6" bags also which were also lop-sided and again made in China].Have I just been unlucky? So does anyone know of an 8" x 5" bag that's more or less guaranteed to be of good quality and so probably not made in China? Thanks for any help.
