I honestly don't like that shape and would rather have a bag that's perfectly rounded and sphere-like just like what I've seen in most images and photos. I'm also a little bit frustrated because the air pump I have has a broken needle from an Everlast air pump and I'll have to get a replacement, plus and a better speed bag. So I'm doing some research to find out what's the best brand out there to get a speed bag. I'm considering getting a black medium 9x6 bag to match well with the heavy bag and the stand I have. Hopefully the speedbag is even and in a round shape as well as long lasting by the time I get paid. And finally where can I go to where I can other wise get a free replacement for the needle?
Hey Crazyharp, I hate to tell ya but "the best brand
" is completely a matter of opinion. Every company has had some great bags, and they've had some stinkers. It just depends on the one YOU have. You might do better to pick the shape you like, which is more reliable per brand, and then the size you want, and go with that. I could easily say "Everlast is best". No, "Title is best". wrong again, "Ringside bags are the best..." And I would be honest each time because I have had awesome bags from all these companies. Don't forget Top Contender, Rival, Reyes, Century and various others. It's just a matter of opinion.
If you want a "round shaped bag" then pick a manufacturer that shows that shape. I don't know who to suggest for that. The going models are "Tear drop" and "bannana" mostly. I think Tim has a small round bag by everlast. Actually several have it. It is a multi-colored bag that is in several pictures around the site. Looks like a "basketball bag".
Air needles are very cheap. You should be able to get one (or a set of three usually) for very little money.
