Everlast 4208

Im looking at an older 4208 in o.k. condition. It comes with the older plastic swivel. No idea of what year. He's asking $50 for both. Does anybody think it's worth that?

If that includes postage, not too bad. If it doesn't way too much. The 4208 is a long neck, and it's a decent beginners bag, as it's slow(I've found them slower than the 4207) and it's about as long as you can use on a 24" diameter platform

Thanks Dutchman. I did not realize it was such a big bag.

Big and slow. Good if your looking to works hooks, jabs, etc. . . . Not so good for "fancy" bagging.

So I picked it up for $30 with the swivel. This thing is a monster. Too early to hit it. Everybody is sleeping. should be a keeper for me since I'm not too advanced with the bags.

Unfortunately, I'm not computer literate enough to do that. I'm still trying to figure out how to order The Speed Bag Bible.

Was it red, or dark (brown or black)? The former is the style made from the late 1970's until the cessation of domestic production. The dark colored ones are from the late 1950's through the early 1970's.
