Nice looking bag.
Thanks. I finally got a decent workout in on it today (been really busy with work), I really like it

At this point I'd wholeheartedly recommend Title speed bags.

These are currently on sale for $19.99 - that's about as cheap as speed bags get...

Now Iíve also a little 5x8 speed bag: just the Title Red Classic.

Itís really light... so light thatís 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 Ďfliesí 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?

Yes, it is a very light bag. takes a while to get use to the lightness. It is very easy on the hands, and you don't have to pound it to get it to go fast.
Paolo, you are now learning to hit "faster", not "harder". It is difficult to explain, but you will know when you suddenly feel yourself doing it.

This is your video that was posted on rossboxing.com?

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...
