not soft!

The bag is high-quality on the whole, although it developed a small tear when I set it on the ground for 5 min while setting up the hardware, so be careful with that. I was worried that the fill would be TOO soft and cushy, but the opposite is the case - it's pretty hard, actually. A decent enough product, but I'd get something either a bit lighter or a bit softer if I were to do it again.

Love it

Sorry to see this not for sale anymore. It was a nice mid-range price for a very nice product. I'm enjoying it very much, and hope others get a chance to do the same.

chain shortening?

Any thoughts on how to shorten the chain? The basement ceiling is low (8'), but the bag NEEDS a spring (adds an extra 4") to reduce the house-shaking. I can remove the carabiner and just hang the spring between the swivel and the joist hanger, but the bag still hangs a couple inches too low. At the bottom of the chains, only one of the four hooks to the bag is removable; the other 3 are closed tight. There's no opening at the top (connection to the swivel).

totally reliable

Ringside usually doesn't cut any corners, and this bag is a perfect example of that. The leather attachment pieces that connect the bag to the chains is very secure, and the quality of the leather casing is top notch. I've never heard of anyone using this bag and being disappointed with the results.

king of the bags

This bag is the best there is. It so perfectly constructed that im not sure it will ever wear out. The leather hide on this thing is super tough and slick, it's as fun to just look at as it is to hit. totally worth the price.

Punching Bags Expert FAQs
     
  1. What weight heavy bag should I get?

    70lb-90lb bags are the most commonly purchased bags and are appropriate for adults in the 140-170lb weight range. These bags often provide the right blend of resistance and give.
    For individuals who are 170+lbs or who have developed significantly increased punching power, you may want to shop for 100+lb bags.
    Lighter bags in the 25lb-60lb range are great for children or smaller adults who are just starting out in their training regiment.
    When deciding what weight to get, keep in mind that getting a bag that is a bit lighter will increase the sway and motion during your training. This can be beneficial if you are looking to improve your footwork and reactions. Heavier bags have a tendency to stay in place and are better for developing penetration power.

  2.  
  3. How do I hang up my heavy bag?

    You will have two main options for hanging up your heavy bag - installing it into your ceiling or purchasing a mobile stand.
    Many people who have garages or finished basements choose to install the bag directly into a support beam in their ceiling. To do this they either purchase a simple holder or attachment which can be securely fastened to the beam. This method is inexpensive, but it can also be troublesome due to the noise heavy bag training makes. If the beam the bag is attached to connects with the rest of the house, it might cause vibration and noise when struck.

    The second option is purchasing a free stand. These steel constructed units can either be purposed solely for heavy bags, or involve multiple stations for different kinds of bags. It is recommended that users weight the bottom of the device to minimize shifting as the bag is struck and swung.

  4.  
  5. What kind of hand protection should I use?

    It's important to use proper hand protection during training routines, especially if you are just starting out on the heavy bag. A combination of handwrap + bag glove is your best bet.
    Handwrap is an an inexpensive cloth roll that is used to protect the knuckles and skin from abrasion while securing the wrist for repeated impact. Bag gloves are designed with extra padding and firm support in order to disperse the impact of strikes and reduce the strain on your joints. Different bag gloves have different thicknesses, and the sturdier the heavy bag the more padding you might want in your gloves.

  6.  
  7. What kind of bag exterior is best?

    The main exterior types are vinyl, nylon, canvas, and leather. Other options include synthetic leather, polycanvas, and Everlast's Nevatear.
    Professional gyms and locations that use heavy bags frequently choose leather bags for their superior durability and feel. Leather bags are more expensive and require that you rub moisturizer into them occasionally to prevent cracking. Vinyl, nylon, and canvas bags are less expensive and don't require maintenance, making them popular choices for at-home use. Canvas bags are durable but very abrasive against bare knuckles.
