Speed Bag Equipment
Here are my questions. I was wondering if I should go with something different or what you think is the best adjustable platform you can buy regardless of price. Also, you said in your dvd to drill holes to attach the swivel and on this platform it doesn’t lo mulberry purse ok like that will be possible so what is your recommendation.
Now as far as the swivel you recommended the everlast ballhook which is now plastic. I can’t seem to find the two piece metal one anywhere. Do you know where I can find it or another swivel that mulberry purse has the same quality and function.
My last question is about speed bags. What are the highest quality fastest speed bags I can buy that meets your criteria as far as shape, etc. So basically with price not being an issue which speed bags would you recommend based on your personal preference in 8x mulberry purse 5, 9×6, 10×7, and 11×8?
Oh and one last thing. I wanted to purchase your 4 video training tapes on dvd which I can’t find. I appreciate the compliment. It is not that hard once you understand how the speed bag works. You can do it! For a little more Now to answer some of your questions.
(Question 1) I was wondering if I should go with something different or what you think is the best adjustable platform you can buy regardless of price.
: That looks to be a very nice unit. I have not personally used the V model wall units like this, but I imagine they are fine. You do not say what you need it for, meaning if it will be used mostly by one or two people, or will it be used in a high traffic multi user club. I honestly believe the shown price ($799.00) for an adustable wall unit is a little high. There are many fine adjustable wall units for a lot less money. I have included a few links for you. I like the variable adjustment ability, meaning there are no pre set drilled holes in the vertical adjustment poles.)Any of these listed will be fine for you.
(Question 2) you said in your dvd to drill holes to attach the swivel and on this platform it doesn’t look like that will be possible so what is your recommendation.
: That is true, I like to bolt the swivel to the board. the small screws that come with most swivels just seem to work loose, particularly after a lot of punching. But some wall units (like the V mount style of your link) and many freestanding frames do not allow for the swivel holes to drilled all the way through because of the metal framing in the center, over the wood that attaches to the board. If that is the case, then just use the screws and hope for the best. I can’t seem to find the two piece metal one anywhere. Do you know where I can find it or another swivel that has t mulberry purse he same quality and function.
: I share you lament, and curse the day that they began messing with a perfectly good swivel. The old model 4440 ballhook was a great swivel for many many years. I noticed in the mid 1990’s this swivel was being “worked on”, and modified. different shank size, different hook design, etc. In my opinion, Each adaption made it worse. Now it has been scraped for a plastic ball hook. I don’t know why this happened, But I suspect it is about money, such as reducing production cost and boosting profits. I don’t think it was not about increasing quality. I do not know any sources for the old two piece ball hook. All of my contacts are out of it also. I like the swivel action but the bag tends to float off the bar, or slide down it. That is why I recommend the tape.
Question 4) My next question is about speed bags. What are the highest quality fastest speed bags I can buy that meets your criteria as far as shape, etc
