Well I guess I said 6plus plus..... So a "plus" is equal to .125" in this instance.

It was delivered today, slight abnormal shape as it is a tad more bulbus? on one side over the other. That said it reacts like it should but it has a very small and tight loop, with a little Vaseline I worked it on to the arc. The loop will adjust over time.

I have an extra enkay bladder as well as an everlast bladder and I am toying with installing one of those.. Anybody replaced the bladder from the black? It's hitting fine and I really like it but I am curious about the bladder swap.

They often are misshapen. Most of mine have been. They'll punch out fine.

I've never changed out bladders in one. I dont endorse changing out new bladders in a new bag. Some people do it but I've never had the need.

Enkay bladder swap

I swapped mine to an enkay about 6 months after receiving due to the valve leaking. It was definitely an improvement but I think it was my first attempt at replacing and I tore the glue/valve circle out. That lead to the welting coming undone and panels separating. Luckily my mother was able to salvage it for me and it is still holding up. Out of the bags that I have had the longest the leather on this one has held up the best. It is a great bag for sure.

Cazbag, when you got your black for fathers day do you remember the tag having an S or an XS?

XS, the next size bladder was too tall for it as well.

Need a little help

Sorry if I'm getting of the subject a little
Iíve been following your thread and Iím getting a lot out of it so I need some opinions.
Saving the coins for a new bag, looking at Title Yellow, Title Black,Title Ali Authentic, Balazs. All things being fairly equal from what Iíve read (speed, rebound, constancy, which would be the easiest on the hands?

Know you did not list, but, I recently purchased a large size Cleto. I hit barehanded with no issues. The leather is soft and there are no welts. Might be worth a look.

I can't agree more with bag man on the Cleto bags. I started with a 6" and now have all four sizes and they are in my opinion the very best bags for U-bolt swivels. Somebody above (perhaps you) mentioned the Title Ali Authentic bags.. I have all three and I cannot say enough about those. Worth every penny.
