While I like the idea of the adjustable height speed bag/concentration target, this one simply does not hold up well to punching. Of course, this is a problem, as it is a punching target. I followed the assembly instructions, being careful to avoid over-inflation. After about 3 weeks use, the bag cover has ripped and the adjustment collar on the stand has shattered. I attribute this to the collar being made of cheap plastic. Essentially, if you are a middle schooler or a woman seeking aerobic work, this bag will meet or exceed your needs. If you are a grown man, with even a modicum of upper body strength, look elsewhere.
I already have this and bought one for my dad for his Birthday. He loves it and I love mine. It is a great stress reliever.
So far this bag meets my expectations but I don't really have anything else to compare it to, so I gave it a 4 out of 5. Otherwise, I've been using it for several weeks now and it's holding up just fine. I am a woman, 5'5" 130lbs of about average strength. I'm still learning how to use it properly but it seems to be very durable so far. My boyfriend even used it a couple times (not punching at full strength). It's more for reflex than it is for power punches. I would suggest an actual punching bag for that esp. if you are a male. I live in a loft so when I'm done I just shove it in the corner and it doesn't take up a lot of space like a puching bag.
Bought this for a 12 year old granddaughter. She loves it and says she will get in shape!!
I bought this to get rid of my back fat, slim down my abs, and strengthen my arms....it's been a week and I see the difference already. I work on it at least twice a day for about 10 minutes-you really start to huff and puff when you stay on it constantly. It is constructed well and have had no problems unlike some of the other raters. Everyone that comes to the house loves it and wants to work out on it while they are here. It probably wouldn't be for a really strong man that uses a heavy bag to punch, but for women, children and men who want to get in shape it's great. Even my husband started to use it and enjoys it. I'm somewhat athletic-walk ten miles a day, do aerobics, and keep busy with sports so this isn't just a toy....it does give you a good workout. Really pleased with this purchase.
This product is the BEST. Thanks to everlast n to walmart. i was hesitating on buying it not knowing if it was a good idea. But I am so glad I did it..I am in looooooooove with this product. I bought it for my weigh loss, and I wanted to workout in a fun way. This product over met my expectation, 5 stars is not enough to rate it. Please I am not there to advertise it or something close to that. I am just so happy with this product and wanted to share it. Especially with people who want to loose way. I had it for a week now, went on a no strict diet and I have already lost 8 pound. All I did was boxing for an hour or less everyday. I am a women ,5'10'' and was 247lbs and now 239.
Great product........they just forgot to mention it did require sand/water for the base. I put it together Easter eve and was out of luck........until Monday. Otherwise great price for product.....perfect for my 8 year old son and even me too mess around on.
Our grandson loved it. A great way to burn off energy!
I used river rocks ($1.50 for a 50 pound bag) to hold it down, less mess than sand or water.
If you are an adult standing six feet, or more, and want to practice head shots using this bag, forget it. It is too short. Also, it is almost unbelievable that the bag simply screws on and has no locking mechanism or set screw. Each time you hit the bag, it loosens. Eventually, after about thirty seconds, you have to stop your routine and screw it back on. Today, I will drill the side of the bag collar and insert a set screw. The company making this bag should have done that, though. I don't expect this bag to hold up to regular workouts. I think a child might be OK with this unit, though.
I bought this for my husband who is in a wheelchair so he can strengthen his upper body! Perfect! 7 year old Grandson loves it too!!!
Looks like it's for a child, but it's for adults.
Fastening hardware loosens with use. No lock washers included.
No workout instructions or suggestions included.
Glove padding is minimal.
Product cost more at Aldi foods at Xmas time.
Punching bag may go the way of the mini trampoline ~ storage!
I was a little concerned upon assembly that the butterfly screw didn't actually screw into the bar but only up to it, that didn't seem very stable (for height adjustment). Well, the plastic ring holding it in cracked and broke off within about 5 minutes of use. I am still awaiting a replacement part. Also, the base assembly didn't mirror the diagram on the instructions so there was a little confusion getting it assembled, and it must not have been tight enough because that came apart too after a couple of hours.
Hopefully once I get my part we can start over and be satisfied but for now, quite disappointed.
i was searching a cheap one for a long time... it is very nice quality for the price. the dodge of the punching bag is also gr8. We filled sand in the stand and it stands perfect
I love my bag it works great, after my baby i put on a few ounds I've been using it steady for a month and the results are definitly there.
I bought this punching bag because, I wanted to feel an impact on my arms. It is my favorite part of my workout. You can pretend it's someone you know that needs to be punched!! I feel it in the back bottom of the arm from the shoulder to the elbow.
Wasn't sure if this item was going to be the right size for a 15 year old boy. But he loves it. It is actually a fun product and I myself have gone out and punched it a few times myself. Really a great price and great value.
This is a great bag for someone (adult) who is just starting out that might not want to invest too much until they feel comfortable. As for children it's perfect! I only wish was that the gloves were better for adults. They fit I was just looking for more of a boxing glove but over all the person I brought this for is extremely happy and that's what counts. :o)
As grandparents, we order this punching bay w/ Gloves for our grandson's 7th birthday present. First, it arrived at our house within a couple day at $ .97 shipping.
He was so excited since he did not know what he was getting. He does realize that this is not to be considered a "toy" and can hurt you if not use properly. His larger 9 1/2 year old brother play with it also. It is a better product than we thought it would be and can be used for years to come. We couldn't be any happier.
Even though this is made for adults, I bought it for my 6 year old son. He LOVES it (so does the rest of the family). The only think is that the spring is a little loose for my taste but definitely not a deal breaker. Great product for all ages!
