Free standing punch bags
Anyone have any experience with these?
Am looking to get myself one, have found a couple of differing ones that vary in price from $200 (left) to $599 (right) which is quite significant, I know you get what you pay for, but not sure I can see the vast difference except the one on the right is NZ Made I think as opposed to the imported one on the left?
Both similar height and specs, obviously look a little different.
One on left is from Qualmax Direct Importers in Dunedin, anyone know of them or use them, they claim thier one is normal RP of $499.00.
Snap! I just asked the wife to get me one for my birthday. There's another type I know of which is basically the shape of a human torso. Sorry I'm not adding any useful info you requested. But If you can find a local Dojo usually they'll have free standing bags.
I guess I just like having a face to punch...
No idea about the the price of this one specifically but I have seen similar for around $500.
yeah I saw them too, think it was similarly priced to the one on the right, which I am guessing can be used in kick boxing as well, whereas the one on th eleft is most likely a boxing one only???

I guess so. I mean if your going to picture a "punching" bag and have a dude kicking the shit out of it then surely thats the bugger you'd want as your going to get a wider range of activity and surely i'll be durable.
can you get to test them at a gym close by or something? do they topple over?
you fill the base with about 200lb of water...so shouldnt fall over
you'd probably (well, me anyway) break your wrists before knocking it over then eh.
I used to love boxing for fitness work pre season, got into it big time one season. HARD work!
yeah is a good high intensity work out, also good to pound on after you watch your team play pathetically too (see Northland v Counties in 2009 NPC)
Hours of fun to be had watching your unco/never been in a fight/talks himself up/pissed mate make a complete dick of himself trying to impress the ladies at a bbq with his girl punches.
ah the hilarity..
I thought this was a thread about Foster...
I had one while back, don't use water it inevitably leaks. Use sand. Or gravel. Or even better, concrete mix, then wet the bastard.
