Rated 4 out of 5 by Elizabeth1 freestanding heavy bag
Good for the price but should have gotten something more sturdy. My son is stronger than I thought.

I purchased this bag today and had a nice workout with my boys. I was really looking for a nice workout punching bag for my boys.. They take karate lesson and this bag with its mobile and all around movement makes it ideal for my boys. Love the adjustable height too. And we assembled it in 20 minutes...Dicks is the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cntrlaltdelete very pleased
well-made and very durable. that being said, it is a freestanding bag with a spring mechanism in the base of the stand... so hits send the bag reeling in all directions. in this way, "heavy bag" is probably not an accurate name. i live in a small apartment and an actual heavy bag wasn't an option so this is a great freestanding bag for me. the springy movement of the bag actual makes it great for overall training (foot work, counters, blocks, etc.) but i wasn't aware of how much swingin' it was going to do before i purchased. make sure you have some wraps or gloves too; the padded bag is really nice but, when you throw heavy hits, you'll feel the core. it's tolerable though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAM62 Takes a beating and comes back for more
LOVE IT!. I am 6'4" 250 lbs and have beat the heck out of it. It never slides because of the spring. I love the fact that it moves as you have to hit a moving target instead of a bag that just sits in one place, great for hand eye coordination and getting used to something coming at you so you don't blink. I have even used it at night with the lights off to help with hitting something in low light. Works good for medium to high kicks too, but I mostly punch it as it is on the porch and sometimes the floor is wet. BUY IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Punch Great home workout option!
Great portability with good stability. The larger low profile base works well. I filled it with water - it takes A LOT!!! Best if you can fill it with a hose that has a nozzle that can turn on and off. Use small but steady stream and use a funnel. It is pretty heavy once filled. I could roll it short distances once filled. If you have to move it farther use a hand truck or two people.
I was able to use full force punch and it didn't tip. It has a lot of movement, so in some ways it can be a mobile target. You can put one foot on the base if you needed more stability, but I never needed that. However, if your looking for the feel of a true heavy bag, this is not for you, unless someone else can brace it.
I use it for a more dynamic workout and use the spring rebound to practice defensive movements. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaxam Awesome Bag - Doesn't slide
This bag rocks! I'm 6'4" 260 lbs and I rocked this thing with 40 high power punches in a row and it did not budge. Love it. It will be a part of my workout from now on. I just hope it holds up, but if it makes it a year it will be worth it

A lot better than the original reflex bag I was using. now I can use this for kicks/knees/clinch/striking. stable base. best thing I've spent my money on exercise wise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuluBee30 Awesome!
Researched different options, liked this one the most, a higher price than the rest but so worth it. Easy to assemble, the employees were helpful via phone and in store and also loaded the box into the car. I am very happy with my decision and I will be shopping at Dick's Sporting Goods for all my sports needs and desires. Thanks so much!
