    That and it will stand up to punishment longer, prolonging the use of your investment. A cheaper bag isn't a good value when you have to replace it every few months.

    I gotta add a motion for support of this notion. Nothing beats the double end. However If you dont want to tear up your ceiling then maybe you SHOULD get the floor one.

    I have one of those reflex ones. Filled the base with sand. Knocked it over a lot.
    Added water to the sand. Still knocked it over.
    Taped a 20kg plate to the bottom. Less instances of knocking it over, but it still tipped and rolled. I no longer use it.
    I second the floor to ceiling bag option.

    i think that vid was good and it is a good idea because it saves some bucks and lets be honest it works the same way and lets not forget it can easily be replaced. i also have to disagree with free standing bags because it you have an extreme routine, you can easily knock one over and at the end it is not worth the money.

    Try not to contribute to threads that are over a year old unless you have something really good to contribute.

    This is a fair point, and a good rule of thumb.

    However, I actually thank alexer333 for necroing this thread.

    It got me to rewatch the youtube vid,

    which led me to some Tyson training clips,

    which inspired me to attack my own bagwork with renewed vigor.

    So it's an ill wind, and all that.

    Welcome, alexer333!

    It depends on what part of your game needs the most work but I'd get a double end bag and a slip bag before that thing. For example because my head movement is so crappy I personally would get a slip bag before anything else.


    Oh yeah and don't necro threads. I didn't even notice this was 2 years old at first. :(
