    I've seen it. You either have an old and worn out bag, or the bag got waterlogged at one point.

    Restuff the bag. If that doesn't work, replace it.

    With physics being what it is, unless what you are hitting is as light as a ball, hitting something with a bat generally doesn't move the object very much.


    Water bags suck.

    haha, that's funny. A few of the bags in our school are like that. We're underneath a weightlifting facility so the dropping of the weights vibrates the bags and makes the bags settle even faster. I never thought to restuff the bag. Thanks.

    Try using Mink Oil. It helps leather get soft and supple and prevents hardening from water contact.

    I have the same bag as well (100 pound bag by everlast) with the same problem. I don't think replacing the bag itself will work because pretty much all the bags by everlast that I tried had the same problem. You could get it restuffed as suggested; though it didn't work very well for me. if money isn't a problem (or you're able to return it) I would recommend ditching the bag and getting another brand.

    I have soft, lady like, delicate, big brittle hands and I kept hurting them on my bag at home. I didn't want to restuff it because I liked the weight so I basically got a bunch of big towels from Sears (soft fluffy ones that is), folded them once over on themselves width wise and duct taped them to the bag. Yes, it looked stupid and I had to use a **** ton of duct tape but it was much softer after that.

    It's a cheap alternative to buying a new bag.

    Am I the only one who likes my heavy bags hard as rocks? They make sure you're always making a proper fist. I also like that they give me great tactile information about exactly how my strikes are landing.

    Restuffing a bag shouldn't change its weight. Doing so should only change the distribution of its contents.

    After you restuff it try taping duct tape around the middle before you even try to hang it. The tape should be really tight to ensure that the sand doesn't resettle to the bottom through the stuffing. Not sure if it will help just picked it up from a boxer and that was how he told me to fix mine.
