For the Martial Artist

    The Body Opponent Bag (BOB) is designed with the proportions and shape of a real person making it a much better tool than regular heavy bags when learning holds, body shots, or training in any form of self defense. The 'skin' is made from rugged plastisol with an inner cavity of urethane and has a lifelike consistency. The BOB has a wide, rounded base which adds stability and makes it easy to roll away when you are done using it. The BOB is adjustable in height from 5'10" to 6'2".

  • Skin is made of high strength plastisol and inner cavity is filled with durable urethane foam
  • Adjustable from 5'10" to 6' 2"
  • Base fills with sand or water and is rounded for easy roll relocation
  • One year limited Manufacturer's warranty
  • Weighs approximately 270 lbs. when filled
  • Due to the size and weight of this item, it cannot be shipped via Air, nor can it be ship to Alaska to Hawaii or internationally.

    I use this punching bag to exercise and to practice my fighting skills! It is also a great and healthy way to get anger out. It was worth the money!

    Apartment use

    I live on the third floor of an apartment and was wondering how well this would work. I am curious if it would bounce around too much and be too loud.

    Although it has a very sturdy base when you fill it with water or sand, any standing bag is going to shift and rock a little on you.

    If you want to be courteous to your downstairs neighbors, give them a certain time of day to stop for a minute and listen. Then go through a sparring drill or punching mitt drill up in your place.

    If it disturbs him, the standing bag will also. If he can't hear it, you have a good shot.

    The good thing about the base cover is that it has a slip-resistant surface to it. That should help deter the shifting you are experiencing. In addition you might fill the base with something heavier.

    Awesome For Martial Artists

    The BOB bag is becoming a must-have in many martial arts schools, and boxers are starting to see value in it as well. The human recreation gives you the chance to strike exact targets, and work on combinations that require a lot of imagination on a heavy bag.

    A good buy

    I use this pretty regularly at the gym. They have one of these and one of those old SLAM MAN things that still works if you can believe it. It has a totally different feel than regular heavy bags. I happen to like this though some people may not. The human shape of this thing does make it a little more fun that a regular bag, and to me, that's what its all about.

    Standing Punching Bag Expert FAQs
       
    1. What kind of standing bags are there?

      Within the standing bag genre there is an excellent variety of options for you to choose from. The most common freestanding bag consists of a fillable plastic basin with an adjustable neck protruding from the top. Attached to that neck is a soft foam filled bag that feels a lot like a traditional nylon heavybag.
      A different variety of bag involves a full-body-length striking surface that is secured to the basin and is non-adjustable. Much different than those two types is the B.O.B. (body opponent bag). This device is shaped like the upper torso of a man and can be used to focus strikes on different anatomical parts of the human body. These are excellent for anyone looking to increase their accuracy and strike selection.
      The final type of freestander available is the reflex bag. This is much smaller than a heavy bag and requires much less weight to stay in place. The point of this bag is not to develop punching power, but to acquire rhythm, timing, and fluidity.

    2.  
    3. Do I need to fill the base? If so, with what?

      For most freestanding bags you will need to fill the basin yourself. Sending the base empty reduces shipping cost significantly.
      The two most common types of fill used in bag basins are plain water and sand. Water is quick, free, and can be dumped out whenever you need to pack up the bag and move it to a different location. Every basin is built to be waterproof (unless explicitly stated otherwise). Sand is a reliable alternative as you needn't worry about liquid spills or leaks even after extensive wear and tear.

    4.  
    5. Will my freestanding bag slide around?

      Freestanding bags are generally designed to resist sliding and skidding during training. However, there are some things you can do to ensure maximum stability for your bag. First, fill the basin to it's proper amount and maintain that level as time goes by. If you've chosen to fill it with water, the water might evaporate slowly which will cause the bag to slip easier. Second, place the bag on a grippy surface. Even the best of bags might slip on slick concrete. Third, if you wish, you can purchase an extra non-slip cover that fits around the basin of your bag.

    6.  
    7. Short body vs long body type bags

      When it comes to heavy bag style freestanders, there are two main styles - the short body and the long body. Short body bags are frequently adjustable and can be made to fit the height of the practitioner using it. Boxers enjoy the smaller striking surface because it provides them greater flexibility and feedback, which allows them to integrate an element of rhythm into their training, much like they might do with the swinging of a standard heavy bag.
      The long body bag is preferred by martial artists and kickboxing practitioners that want to integrate kicking into their routine. The length of the striking surface allows them to use both punches and kicks without having to constantly adjust the striking surface.
