This free standing punching bag is a great stress reliever and way to build strength. It's perfect as a gift for a teen or adult. It stands approximately 69 inches or 175 cm tall. 

It absorbs shock very well with the Daul TPU absorbers and springs. The springs can be removed so there's less vibration.

The round base sticks to the floor because of the 12 very strong suction cups so the base doesn't move. It's easy to move and relocate by rolling the bag on the edge of the base. The base is filled with sand. 

It's made with high quality materials. The tube stand is made of steel and encased in PU leather, high density foam and a fabric buffer. It's resistant to tears and is very durable and rebounds very fast from strikes. 


A good punching bag is essential for anyone who trains for combat sports or just wants to get good exercise and relieve some stress. We've researched the top punching bags on the market and describe them concisely to help you find what you're looking for quickly. 

We focused mostly on heavy bags but we also included other punching bags. For specific bag types we have more articles on the site too.
