    I know it would cost me more...but if I had one, I would have to get the 6' banana bag. In my Jun Fan Class we train in many low kicks so I would prefer one that went to the floor. I will never have one at home though because if it was in the garage, I would never use it, and if it was in the basement, it would rock the house off the foundation.

    I wouldn't worry unless the bag starts to move all by itself.

    My bag looks exactly the same way as that ... and tired ... does your bag look really really tired ?

    It is also hard as a rock on the bottom ... any kicks on the bottom third of the bag suck . Good for conditioning and strangley enough I have found my mid to high level kicks inproving .

    ... don't underestimate soggy, mold infested , highly compacted cloth stuffing ....

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    So Pauli, did you end up buying the Everlast? I'm thinking seriously about it for an outdoor application, but I can't find one to smack before I buy. No idea whether hitting shredded rubber would be as satisfying as hitting shredded rags/sand . . . did you find someplace to try one out?

    Anyone else out there with some input?

    Yeah, mine is pretty tired, I'm trying to move it up a bit this week as the top quarter is essentially empty leather thanks to it all shifting to the bottom. It's real tough on my shins for roundhouse kicks, but it's helping those a lot. For head shots now though, it sucks ass as I'm mostly hitting the empty space. Still does the job though, and with one right outside it's a lot easier to fit in a workout on it.

    Only downsides are stepping on roots in bare feet, shitty weather, and a faint stink.
