Hyperflex Strike Bag
Spring bent, now it just droops to the side.
I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas and he was so excited that I gave it to him early. He used it for about three days and loved it. The next day when he was using it like normal the spring on the top bent so now it doesn't come back right and just kinda droops. I plan on returning it. I'm very dissatisfied that I spent $100 on this for it to break in 4 days.

Good Idea, Bad Design
After 2 weeks of use, a twist knob stripped out. I contacted Everlast and they sent me a new mid section. Well, once the springs are tightened, they aren't meant to take apart. So, I am probably going to contact Everlast again and ask for a new unit. Also, the springs wore out after a month of use. The idea of the self-supporting punching bag is great and it really is a good workout. This unit has just been poorly built and can't seem to hold up. I would expect much greater quality for the price.

DO NOT BUY
This is a piece of junk. Cannot believe they get away with selling this as training equipment. Everlast makes garbage.

great idea, but....
i had been wanting this thing since i first saw it a few months ago and finally had the chance to buy one, so i thought i'd pick it up to get back into working out again now that the kids are going back to school, (i'm a work at home dad). but in the week that i had it, it broke! in the first week! now mind you, i wasn't goin' at full throttle, i was just playin' around with it, a light jab here, maybe a hook or upper there, and not even for 10 mins. at a time! and where it broke was a surprise. right at the shaft base. there is a spring there so the shaft can tilt to a fair degree in any direction, so while the spring itself is fairly heavy duty, the shaft itself just cracked, came right off! it's welded to the piece that's screws to the base, and the shaft broke right above that weld. maybe i just got a bad one out of the lot, but i decided not to exchange it for another, didn't want to go through the same disappointment.

Great for hand eye coordination,speed,and accuracy. Easy to assemble and very fun to use. Even using just water the base is pretty stable and the rest of the equipment is surprisingly durable.
