They have a manufacturing facility in Amish Country. I think the issue was I wanted to make a retail purchase there and perhaps see the platform before buying it. They replied they can't do retail sales at the warehouse and they don't have a showroom. They are legit, but that doesn't mean they don't source material and parts from overseas or manufacture all the items they sell. The guy who started the biz was a Lehigh University engineer. They used to sell out of a house in Allentown. I still have the yellow boxing training gloves and hand wraps I got there.

So I got on the new bag for 20 minutes today. 5 psi was too hard so I reduced the pressure to 4psi, and seemed to have more control, that's probably as it was swinging slower which is giving me time to place my hand on the bag.

Cheers

So overall do you like the Balaz bags? I have one on my to get list. I'm having a fun time trying different bags. Each one has it's own style to it, and I like different ones for different reasons.

Not sure to be honest. I think that's a combination of being a less than 2 month bagger, and that I have downsized probably too quickly. I just wanted to put it up and have a go (like you do with a new toy). It does seem heavy to hit, but I'll be fine with that. I'll keep you updated.

Cheers

Here's a couple vids from today. As I thought. I was much better today, so will keep using it. I have found you definitely need to hit it some to keep it moving.

1 Mar 17 Front Circle / Straight Punch


21 Mar 17 Rear Circle Punch


21 Mar 17 Front Rear Linking


I can't seem to get the vids to play, so below are the raw url's in case anyone wants to paste them into a browser.

BTW, That balazs bag doesn't seem slow like other members mentioned, I might buy one sometime at a later date, i'll probably get the biggest size they offer ;-)

Thanks, perhaps as I am getting used th the bag my speed is picking up.

I bought a smaller size as I would like to get competent on one of the small ones in time and only bought that second one, the smallest they do as it saved me on shipping to the UK.

...it would be nice to see you hit on both size bags in one video, Just to get a comparison between the two sizes
