One of the lessor known makers of the post WWII era, they offered kits much like Everlast, with a rebound ring, striking bag, mitts, and jump rope. They had a promotional deal with Rocky Marciano, which lasted until his death in a small plane accident in 1969. The company was still in business in the mid 1970's but faded from view during that period of time. I've only seen a few of the Roberts bags. They were typical of the bags furnished with the starter kits during that era, they weren't bad , but they weren't real good either. I'm haven't seen anything of theirs that could be considered a "professional" bag,doesn't mean that they didn't exist. As I recall the deal with Marciano was made after he retired, so there wasn't a real need to make a pro bag.
