    Thanks for the update, Vector. Do you find that the bag swings less than a solid-filled bag?

    It does swing less, but I think that may be a function of the weight. I have never used one of those 200+ pound solid-filled bags. The biggest we have had is a 120-130 lb banana bag (I didn't purchase it, so I'm not sure of the advertised weight).

    We have the base of the water-filled bag touching the floor. We set it so that it was just barely above the floor, then dropped it two links.

    FYI: I received the Ringside sales circular today and noticed the water-filled Thai bag was on sale for $219.99 ($80.00 off)

    Thai/Banana Bags - consolidated thread.

    Hey guys:

    Was wondering if anyone can comment on this CSI Thai Bag:

    http://www.combatsports.com/detail.aspx?ID=22065

    How is the density/hardness of the bag (soft, neutral, hard)? Are the seams bothersome to your shins? How does this bag compare to other bags out there?

    Thanks!!

    While I haven't used that specific bag, I did go hit a Fairtex banana bag not too long ago. I would recommend the Fairtex to anyone. Great texture, good resistance. It was relatively new, so I don't have any direct information on reliability, but the Fairtex bags seem to have a good reputation for lasting.

    By the way, we just bought a CSI 6' water-filled bag and most of the guys really like it. I don't have any complaints, but would rather have gotten the Fairtex. (I got out voted)

    Post all bag questions here:

    Yo. I have been working on heavy bags for awhile now. Every bag I have ever becomes insanely hard at the bottom and too soft at the top. Is there anything I can do to prevent this? Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. Peace.

    my coach told me that if you tape the middle of the bag it can prevent that from happening

    The bottom of a banana bag is supposed to be hard. That is where you should do your shin conditioning. A good quality short bag like a boxer uses usually has a more uniform hardness. They are actually constructed differently on the inside.
