Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for the Martial Arts or Self Defense enthusiast Packaging was sufficient for the item, 2 large boxes. Bob XL was very easy to connect to it's base. The plastisol absorbs the punches and kicks in an almost life like manner. The anatomically correct mold of Bob is very useful in learning the correct location of strike points on an opponent. This was a Christmas gift and the recipients love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size! I ordered this for my pre teen daughter to practice her punching and kicking activities. This is the perfect size and very realistic, he will scare you if not prepared to see him standing alone in your house. LOL. Comes in two boxes and shipping was super fast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I bought this for my fiancé for his birthday. I was reluctant to buy it because for one it's expensive, but I Thought about it and said to myself, he's well worth it!! I didn't realize it would be delivered in such huge boxes. I ended up giving it to him to him early because I couldn't lift it. I've never seen him smile sooo big. Needless to say he loves it and so do I. It's very sturdy and well made. I recommend this product over the smaller Bob.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I'm really liking Bob XL. Here's whyI think it beats the heck out of a heavy bag. Targeting. Power hits without hand pain. Additional CFS Training.Targeting: I found I was hitting low on the bag. Didn’t really realize it until I used Bob. It’s tiring to hold your hands up, thus natural to lower the punches with the bag. Bob trains your muscles more appropriately. Since he adjusts from short to tall heights, I can change my aim to where I want.Specific targeting on Bob that I can't do on a bag - chin, temple, behind the ear using specific punches like hooks, uppercuts and overhand combinations. Guessing on a bag. Ribs kicks and solar plexus strikes. Even Muay Tia neck clinch while kneeing.Power hits. After working on a bag using power hits, my hands and wrist joint hurt for days afterwards. Not so with Bob. 80% of my punches go to Bobs head which moves and absorbs the strike and has no ill effect on the joints. If I pull my punches on the bag, I don't get the practice of following a punch through.Additional CFS Training: Many combat fighting stem techniques can be practiced on Bob. Quick double palms under the chin, palm strike to the nose, or smashes to the neck or collar bone. Eye gouging. Choke holds. Put him on the floor for ground and pound. Twisting his head from a bear hug, or quick finish all out whaling on him.And as an extra benefit, I can stretch legs by putting one on his shoulder. Great for me because he can be lowered to reach. Seriously great piece of equipment.As for wearing heavy bag gloves - hotting the head isn't necessary. MMA gloves will do just fine. But punching the body full force could potentially do some damage. Imo, for body strikes, you're better off wrapping your hands and wearing heavy bag gloves for that.Filling the bas is the only downside. I have water in mine. It was easy, available and will be easy to dump out when needed. But I am at risk of it springing a leak and doing water damage. A lot of water goes in there. Less than my old waterbed though and that was in the house. Other down side to the water is that Bob moves around a little with the sway of the water when I'm working on him and I have to reposition, since he's in a corner area. Guys who fill it with sand report it requires 4-5 60 lb bags. And the sand apparently is quite a task to fill in time and effort.If I could change anything, it would be great to have removable you could put on him to practice arm holds, bars, wrist grabs, undercooks etc. Less expensive would be great too. But I imagine it would eventually sell easily on CL if it's still in good condition.Hope that helps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I'm disappointed It would be great I'm sure if I received all the parts. I'm hoping I get the base by Christmas. Can't really give a good rating ofI don't have the entire product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I bought this for myself for exercise and my son who has cerbral palsy to work on his range of motion. We both love it! It is heavy enough on its own that it doesn't move on a carpeted floor. Very happy with the product and the fast, free delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Big Bob showed up on time and ready to go. Since I filled the base with sand that took a couple of hours but I knew this and had some tips on how to best do it from my Internet research before purchase. I am getting good muay Thai workout on him, more interesting than bag work and better multiple angles, uppercuts, etc. seems to be quality construction but only time will tell how he holds up, I have only had him for a couple weeks. PS when not in use he makes a crazy hat or coat holder, though he has a big head that will stretch out your caps. PPS the dog hates him I have to throw a sheet over him to stop the dog from barking at the poor guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT AND DELIVERY The Century BOB XL is a "GREAT" Training Tool. Easy to unpack and set up and both the base and upper body was shipped together in two different boxes. The delivery time from order to front door was only 3 days and we can't be more happy with this product as a excellent training tool. Decided to take the advice from earlier reviews and put some clothes on BOB XL to aid his longevity, but can be suprising when walking around the corner and see him standing in front of you...
