How To Make A Homemade Double End & Some Bag Work - Feedback Appreciated

I just wanted to contribute something to this forum since it helped me with my speed bag techniques.

First off you will need the following
-surgical tubing
-rope or string
-duct tape
-sock / tennis ball

all i did was smash paper as tightly as possible and stuffed it in a sock, you could also use a tennis ball. The paper comes quite hard and it is a lot harder to hit than a tennis ball. Paper is also cheaper if your on a budget like me. Then I tied the piece of rope to the sock and used the rope to attach the sock to the surgical tubing. After thats secured and tight i wrapped with duct tape. Then all you do is attach to a ceiling and weights on the bottom. Simple and free. Also requires more skill than a regular double end bag. Let me know if you need help. Also this video of me is 1 week after I made the double end bag. Also i normally turn the corners more usually after hitting a left hook or right upper cut but there is a lot of junk on the ground in the area im practicing in.

this double end bag is good for practicing slipping, blocking, turning the corner, head movement, and accuracy.
