Rated 4 out of 5 by OliverSacks Great deal
I think this was a reasonable price for what you get. 199.99... I use it a few hours a day everyday, and I have had it for almost 2 weeks. It developed a slight tear neat the bottom of the bag, and the insides have already begun moving downward, but it is to be expected. I am a heavy user of the item, and we will see how the bag holds up (ill update the review when I get to about 3 months)
If you are interested in this product, it is worth buying. If you are new to fighting, there isn't a workout like it. Everything will strengthen if you use it right, even your hands. Ever see those guys with old man strength that seem to be able to twist open beer bottles even if they aren't twist offs? well this is the most entertaining way to reach that noble goal.

I liked it but It took at least three hours to put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by K. Sid Way better than expected.
I had heard a lot about these stands being noisy or the bag hanging too low. Well, I'm glad I didn't listen. The bag comes with a long chain, but most of it is easily removed. Mine came with an 80 lb bag and I don't experience any problems with the stand moving. It actually didn't even need any weight plates at the bottom to keep it stable and I'm a 250 lb man that hits pretty hard. This is the best purchase to make for anyone looking to master their punching technique or to just get a great workout in. Definitely recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5 by thatguy51 not bad
Not bad. Its a good combination set. the heavy bag is really nice and works well but if you don't have weights to put on the stand then you will want to corner it or the bag/stand will slide around and/or tip. I was disappointed with the speedbag and SB platform and swivel. I had to update the whole speed bag set and make a new platform along with getting a new speedbag and swivel which was about $40-$50 all together and it works great now, but the speed bag set this stand comes with is very low quality (platform, swivel, and bag) the bag tore after my second day using it and the platform wasn't built for giving a good bounce so it lacked speed for the bag. After redoing the speedbag set it really made this entire set worth-while and great workout combinations. Good price despite of the original speedbag set that comes with this but you pay for what u get. It was easy to redo the speed bag and still didn't cost much. So if your wanting to buy this, I say do it with the exception of a couple extra dollars to update the speed bag set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ta69917 Solid product
This is a solid set of equipment for the beginner/novice. I was just looking for another way to work up a sweat and this does the job.

Heavy bag very good and enables a great workout. Speed bag is low quality, and will not last too long, but the price was reasonable. It will start to tear at the seams after a few days of using it. The swivel, which connects to the speed bag, is also of low quality. A good one is available for $20.
The frame requires added weight to the base, which is explained in the instructions.
Pretty easy to assemble. Good space saver in general.

It works great and you can't beat it for the value and what you get for the price.
