Thanks BagBoy

I'm using the ArcSwivel (trying to get use to the ball swivel) and I love it.
I'm also using the Title Gyro 8X6 but at 73 I'm finding it's getting a little heavy
on the hands.
Again, Thank you so much for your input, it means a lot to this young guy.

bag

hello
if the title gyro is already heavy on your hands then the cleto and balazs are the wrong choice .
maybe u should try the title yellow or the title atomic (S) they are very light

The Cleto's are very easy on bare hands, the leather is very smooth and the stitching is flush with the leather as opposed to the gyro or the yellow and they are very fast bags. And when they're that fast and responsive they are very easy to keep going. Although, they are a little more of a banana than the rounder titles.

Love it

I love this forum, so many questions so many responses to them.
I have a 7x5 Atomic, use it to sharpen my skills.
Go back to the 8x6 Gyro, much smother.
Love the round however, in all fairness have never hit a banana.
So, what are the positives and negatives of the banana?

I guess it would depend on what brand of banana you have or decide to purchase. The only so-called banana bags I have are (you guessed it) Cleto bags. No regrets, but I do tend to use them on my Ubolt and leave the Bible and ball hook stuff to my Title bags. Although, the mini cleto is a lot of fun on the arc.

This is the last thing I'll add about the Cleto bags, they're higher in potassium than all the others.

Ringside for a brief period of time offered banana style speed bags, before reverting back to pear shaped ones. They occasionally show up on eBay, but not too frequently from my observations. Makes you wonder if sales were less than they anticipated.
