now see i actaully box....and i just moved recently ...i came on a plane and left my 125lb bag at my folks.....how much did that stuff weigh that you put in there..was it hard or soft....

Jen,
This bag isn't supposed to be heavy or hard. .
Its meant to work on you speed and timing. You can still hit it pretty hard though. It's a great workout. It takes a bit to get used to the rhythm of the bag.  You can use all types of combinations. The only punch you cant throw it an uppercut.

However you can change the way the bag acts by changing some of its variables. I.e.
You can add a stiffer bungee cord. Or you can use bungee cords on the bottom and on top. This will make it more bouncy and spring like. Also a heavier bag would give the bag more inertia, thus changing the way it reacts.

ok i was thinking about how id make one of these, (the bag actually if i could make a guy id be rich) and i was thinking of making like a sawdust core and then stuff cottony stuff all around it. Think that work work or would just plain fluff do better, i want some weight for it

chris,

That's an interesting idea. (the saw dust) you could also use rice or small beans.
if you make the bag heavy make sure you reinforce it so that it's stronger. A heavier bag will produce more momentum due to the added weight. Let me know how it goes!

that's so awesome!
this is really creative--I never would have thought of making one (well, aside from the fact that I don't use a punching bag, haha)
