IMO, the 80's era Everlast 4201 is not a very good bag. I found one, new old stock 84 Olympics version. Not very bouncy, and is banana shaped. http://www.speedbagforum.com/forums/...highlight=4201

Come to think of it, this bag might improve if I put in a plastic bladder instead of the orange latex.

Today I finally spent a good amount of time hitting on my Heritage 9X6 and I really do like this bag. It is fast, it looks really good, the bounce is incredible(To me it seems like the same bounce as the regular Ringside bags). As others have said, if this bag was more tear shaped and less banana, it would be almost a perfect bag in my opinion.

Hey Amazon has the Heritages at a good price for those interested.

6x9 is $81.19 and 5x8 is $51.93

Even if Ringside had a 50% off sale with the shipping it would be more than if you have Amazon Prime with it's free shipping.

It is a good bag. I have it, and I feel like why waste my time hitting other bags when I could be hitting the heritage? It really is that good.

Hey Riqal, the Heritage 5x8 is now even lower at $43 and change.

For the quality of this bag this price is a steal.

That is an insane price! Whatever it is amazon is smoking, I want some. But you know, it makes perfect sense. Prices should be set according to the size of the bag. Bigger bag=more leather, and so you should expect to pay a little more for a larger bag. But in this case the 5’ heritage is $43 vs $99 for the 6’. Wow! Just wow!
