Can you post a pic?

That jives with my experience with water bags... there is a good deal of resistance, but alot of the shock to the joints goes away.

OK here are some pics. I hung by DEB up next to just so you can get a feel for the size of the bag. Please don't mind the mess in my garage. I am slowly trying to convert it into a respectable place to workout. I'll have to figure something else in the winter as it gets colder than a witches nipple in there after the snow flies.

Looks good. Surprising how big those "S" hooks are on that heavy bag. You could go fishing for Jaws with those things. How you like the Fighting DE bag? Maybe a space heater for the garage in the winter?

How did you end up hanging the bag up in the rafters?

The Fighting DE bag is sweet. It is without a doubt quality product. Very pleased....

As far as hanging the bag I went to my local Tractor Supply store and purchased a bracket that has a 2" steel ring. It was rated for 1200 lbs if I recall. The bracket has 4 predrilled holes big enough for 3.5inch lag bolts. I sunk it right into the angled ceiling rafter.

Is that a kettlebell your DE bag is hooked to on the bottom?

wow good eye!
Yep its a 16kg KB. I actually have to find something heavier to hold the DEB as its a little top heavy. Plus I need to start using the thing. Its a helluva workout but I am still new at some of the movements. I am sticking to the KB Swing and Turkish GetUp's for now. Its quite a bit of fun. I am still working my way through Pavel's (Enter The Kettlebell). Trying to take on the speedbag and the kettlebell in the same year... glutton for punishment I guess.

Hi guys,

I'm new to the forum,I thought id join and put up a review of the water bag I bought,because I found this thread helpful when looking for a water bag,I received it last Wednesday,and put it up straight away,I had tried a water bag at a local MMA gym,and thought they felt very good, and for the first few days I came to the conclusion that this bag was the best I had ever used....until last night when I split it

I was throwing a few overhand lefts and i heard a noise behind me,thought it was a mouse ? turns out it was the bag spitting water! I also had the camera running

Heres the clip,starts spitting about the 1.10 mark and I take a closer look

ps. I never really used a speedball,but after watching some of your clips,looks like great fun,and its great to see people who are passionate about there training

Welcome to the forum

That's too bad, it did seem like a nice bag prior to the leak. Hopefully it's just a one-off defect of that bag and not indicative of all of them.
