When I was boxing back in the day the term popping a speed bag didn't mean making the bladder pop. It refered to at the end of a round when the bell rang you trapped the bag against the platform making a popping sound.

....and that is much more respectful to the bag then breaking it. We did some trapping back yonder also.

I've had a few bags blow out on me while punching, but it was never done on purpose. Usually they were bubbled or the air valve blew out. Back in the 70's, The two piece plastic bladders were pretty bad about separating on the seam.
