That's because it is a specific type of bag not just a hanging system.

OTH, they aren't that expensive when considered with other types of equipment, and I'm sure one can find a cheap one in eBay or craigslist.
Back to the topic, I've found training uppercuts on a heavy bag to suck ass real bad, but then again, I suck at striking so there.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

www.sugarrays.co.uk - they're made by Ampro (and I think everlast too). Dunno much about them but it's somewhere that sells them!

They seem to have some great products .
I like this angled type bag personally a little pricey but I bet it would wear nicely .

I really don't see the need for all these different bags just so you can throw an uppercut. I've never had any trouble practicing uppercuts with just the plain ol' heavy bag or someone holding mitts. The bag BFM posted is kinda cool though since it's still still a heavy bag and you can actually work combinations on it. I've never really cared for the sideways "uppercut" bag.

I did just that with a nasty old Everlast canvas bag when the straps (inevitably) ripped. Rigged properly, it's easy to change the height if you want to work different types of knees, downward spiking elbows, snap kicks etc.
Yeah, it's hard as a rock . . . but that'll keep you from getting lazy with wrist alignment.
