Thx

I have the everlast yellow & black double end bag.
It came with an elastic bottom cord and a nylon rope (Non-stretchy) top cord. I adjusted the length of the top cord so that when I hit the bag its as if I were punching someone exactly my height in the face.
I'm not sure about the rebound if you have 2 elastic cords, Hang it up and see what happens.

Go to YouTube, type in double end bag and check out the video by Grim X from Worldboxingforums.com. Very informative video about setup, height, tension and technique

For me, I'll put the bag at different heights since I have the upper cord that easily adjust differently. I'll also hit it straight, downward, upward, sideways, etc.

Who says that it just has to be hit straight? Does a real fight just require straight punches? Plus, I like the weird returns it gives when it is not hit straight.
