It's actually very similar to my old school Everlast 4205

I don't remember the hooded top on the 4205. Must be a memory lapse on my part.

It maybe shows up better on the USMC bag because the hood is double stitched, versus single stitching on the 4205 I hold in my hand. As for the USMC bag, I like the color, the entire bag looks badass.

I got it. I believe that I have a bladder that will fit it. In the next week or so I should finally have my garage straightened out and I will try and send a photo of my set up. I also managed to retrieve an old Everlast Platform similar to the set up that Zaza has from my place in Georgia. I bought it in the early 70's and the drum wasn't wood but 3 inch thick particle board the cast iron forming the back bone was painted bright orange as were the levers and everything but the pipes on the side. Anyway I'm trying to restore it and hang it along with some other equipment. The older you get the bigger chore moving cross country seems to become. My garage presently looks like a minefield that has self destructed. Northern Michigan is drop dead gorgeous though.

Good job! I was watching it as well. Really thought it would go for more. Have to let us know how it hits.

I don't think that I have ever hit a speed bag as big as this one looks to be. It will be interesting. You folks are so far past me in the punch drumming department that it's like the pee wee league compared to the All Star Game. A fella has to start somewhere though and boxing equipment is a joy an escape and an adventure.

Yes it do. Must be the name.
