tr-bg-20 Everlast Free Standing Punching Bag

3 out of 5 stars   

While this item is great fun for light-hitting strikers, harder punchers will be forced to maneuver around the object to move it back into its original spot due to the way it dances when hit. That, surprisingly enough, is pretty fun - although tedious if you don't like to have to move your target. My fianc and I got this for light workouts, and we're having a good time with it. The lively action when you hit the item is fun. It does quite well for a stand-up target. Just don't expect it to live up to serious punishment. If you're a big striker you'll likely be knocking this one over at some point even though it's well-built. The base is 200 lbs. and the spring action releases some of your striking energy, but this thing dances a full foot on my moderately powerful hits. If I went any further I do believe this item would hit the ground regularly. It's decent fun, and a good alternative to a heavy bag, especially for lighter workouts for smaller strikers or speed training.
