Everlast? Who knows lol. I only ever had one, a guy who owned Boxing.com at the time (boxinginsider.com owner) had his own boxing merchandise store and sent me a 70 lb. heavy bag. I never got it filled or hung up though, and eventually lost it. So I have no idea lol.

You really need to go out and hit a few before you buy one. I personally like the water bags. Its basically a heavy bag with a soft shell with water in it. It feels more like a body to me. Alot of people don't like them though.

I liked the Everlast 80lb. bag I had in high school, until it cracked the basement 2X6 I had it hanging from; my folks were kind of pissed. A good, cheap bag (I learned this in the Army) is to use a standard G.I. duffle and stuff it full of clothes--one should be around five or ten bucks at a surplus store. The size and shape are perfect and it's thick canvas, and you can really compress the contents to get good weight. Run a small chain through the top center lock hoop and use nylon rope through shoulder straps to control swinging--cheap and effective.

I have an everlast set i just bought. The one i had before was also an 80lbs everlast and it was great. Depends how much movement you want from it. If you want it to swing around some get a 60lbs, happy medium is 80lb, and if you want it to laugh at you get a 100lb one. You can also get the stand like i have and buy a chain to connect the bottom also, so it doesn't move very far when you hit it. Speed bags are a little more tricky, you should go to the store and ask someone that knows something so you can buy one that fits what you prefer. I got a leather everlast one i fill 4-5lbs and that works great for me.
