Don't I know it! Also impossibly long to do Bible style, unless you are 7' tall or built like an orangutan. But if you use them boxing style, wow you feel the burn in your arms, triceps especially, after just a few minutes.

We talked about my big Everlast ymca bag at the gathering. I had forgotten the actual size and proper name. It is the 4205 Leatherneck Y.M.C.A and is 13"x10". In the 1994 catalog pages I've seen posted on the forum, that bag was Everlast's most expensive speedbag at the time, costing $80.00. For its size, it is a surprisingly light bag and very well made.

If any bag deserves to be put back into production it is the Everlast 4205.
