Cleto

Are cleto reyes bags worth the money or should I just go balazs?

ID:	4624i have just bought this in small (6x9). I previously had a large Lonsdale. I may be biased but there seems to be a huge difference in user enjoyment. The Cleto bag is much lighter and faster. Ultimately, I think it is a personal choice on how you spend your money and what you want. All you can do us read reviews of people who have used the bag for their experience of it. Good luck whatever you choose.

That depends, on how hard your gonna be on the bag, do you want a bag that will take a beating and not blow out any seams, than I would say yes, I have had three bags, one I gave to zaza. All those bags took what I had, they are not the fastest bags but because their tough you can add an extra puff or two of air to speed them up, here's one thing that I noticed, because of the stiff loop some people have trouble with the bag and how it reacts on the swivel, because it's not a flexible loop like other bags it won't grip the loop and more or less acts like a pivot, I notice this when I got my first cleto but in a short time you will adapt to the characteristics of the bag and won't notice it, some people take longer than other people to adapt and don't like the bag but give yourself time to adapt your skill and timing to the bag...ralph

I love that little bag you gave me Ralph... thanks again. If it lives through you & me... it's tough (I believe we both hit pretty hard & fast). The loops are thick and tough to get on some swivels, but it slides right on the Deville like a charm!

Speaking of which... after MANY hours of hitting, I'm actually starting to wear out one of my deville's.
