Best Heavy Bags

Hi,

Newbie here.

I was wondering what you guys think is the best bag that money can buy.

I'm looking to get a 100 pounder.

I like the Century polyester bags because they're quiet and I live in a quiet neighborhood. But I haven't seen them in use that much and I was wondering if there was a reason for that.

Thanks in advance and good times,

Greg

Post some links to what you are looking at specifically and you'll get good feedback.

personally, I'd only hit water and "soft fill" bags, easier on the hands. And I'd recommend you get something from ringside.com or titleboxing.com, forget the models at the chain stores (Sports authority, etc.) They're junk and not worth much.

I'm looking at these 2...

or this everlast 70 pounder, since I'll be hanging them from a stand.

Thanks, I'll check out those websites.

I have a Title medicine ball that I'm very happy with. I'll look into their heavy bags too.

I don't think I'm going to buy a polyester bag afterall, I just saw one at the sporting goods store I work at and it was easily ripped apart.

Good times,

Just to let you know i
bought a Century 100 lb bag and after about a month one of the straps that connect the chains to the bag tore completely off...returned it and bought a Ringside and have been pounding it for about 3 years now with no problemos........Take Tims advice....Title or Ringside!!!

If you were on a tight budget would you buy an Everlast?

Or just save your money to get a better bag.

Also any chance someone knows a place in the San Francisco bay area that carries Title or Ring side bags?

Thanks for the feedback.

I'll wait until I can get a deal on a Title or a Ringside.

Are there any drawbacks to the "body snatcher" teardrop shaped bags?

http://www.ringside.com/DETAIL.ASPX?ID=24792

Or these other specialty bags?

http://store.titleboxing.com/title-g...dummy-bag.html

http://store.titleboxing.com/title-b...-heavybag.html

I know they're usually not as heavy but I like that you can include upper cut like shots with them.

Good times,

G

Powair Waterbag

You can adjust the weight to your liking, no hard spots, like hitting an actual person and quiet as a mouse.

i made my own 72" heavy bag for about $100 or so.

i used a bunch of old blankets for padding, and the core is 4" pvc pipe filled with sand and end caps glued on so the sand will never settle.

just used my wifes sewing machine to sew it.



the only bummer is after i finished it, ringside had a summer special and sold a leather 72" bag for about the same amount. >=-(

Good looking bag. Too bad after all that work and $$ you put into it the sale happened.......but this is classic Murphy's Law. You'll enjoy yours more anyway cuz there are no shipping and next day charges and whatever else gets tacked on
