My biggest misgiving when selecting this product, other than the price, was whether or not it would hold up under heavy training and whether or not the base would be sufficient to keep it upright. The biggest problem I have had with bags over the last 15 years is that they don't hold up. The chains break, the bags rupture, the bases don't hold it down. I have broken every bag I've ever owned and a few that weren't mine. So when I went to purchase the first bag I've owned in 5 years I decided I would put price consideration aside and get something that would hold up to regular use. I'm a big man and I have a heavy right hand. I weigh 290lbs and I hit hard. That being said I don't knock this thing over. With 250lb of sand in the base a solid body shot puts it back to about a 45 degree angle and it snaps back solid every time. This is something I could not say for any other free standing bag I've ever used. The base will walk back and to the side with series of blows but I don't see that as a bad thing as it forces me to walk up with it a bit.The mannequin is solid and perfect for indoor use or outdoor under a roof, I don't think I would leave it out without a shelter over it though. The large body is perfect for targeted training and practicing on weak points. After a month and a half I decided to see if it held up to Kendo targeting with a solid oak bokuto and a couple weeks later it shows no sign of wear.I recommend this wholeheartedly for any big guys out there that have been disappointed with free standing bags. It is well worth the extra cash.

Excellent anti-stress/frustration partner :opUsed a plastic bottle to fill the base (cut both extremities), and it took only 115kg of play sand,which is more expensive but usually very dry (easier to get out if needed).The base is a bit slippery even when filled but a simple rug grip will do the trick (doesn't matter the surface).The delivery was fast and price unbeatable! Great deal for an indispensable item in today's world :o))

Very realistic, kids are throwing it around for WWE practice and having fun with it. Arrived in great condition, but did not include gel gloves that were supposed to be part of the package. Good addition to my workout routine, although it did freak out the dogs for several days as it is realistic looking.

Great Product, things is very durable, has full face features, so you feel like you are hitting someone real. The only down side I wish the dummy was a little heavy for a solid hit because it bounces a little bit, but I imagine thats closer to actually hitting someone. I would definately recommend, only CON was the price, but well worth something like this. My biggest issue was CEVA the delivery service they use to ship the item was aweful! Becuase they was no way of having it delivery without someone physcially being able to sign for it....no written permission no verbal confirmation, nothing...and to top it off they could only deliver in my area on tuesdays and thursday mid day, very inconvient...but after almost 2 weeks of hassle I finally recieved the trainig dummy which I really needed to blow off some extra steam. :) (p.s. I even paid for 3 day shipping.)CONCLUSION: PRODUCT GREAT...DELIVERY PROBLEMATIC

Just like every one else...The head is too soft, you cant hit the back, the funnel is not included. As a side note it comes in two boxes make sure you get both.

I just received my XL BOB a few weeks ago. I am not disappointed at all. It is a great stress reliever in addition to a great workout. I have no complaints but I do wonder why the "fill" hole was not located at the top of the portion that Bob slips onto instead of the base. I think it would've been a lot easier to fill had it been constructed that way. That aside...it's a great heavy bag. Definitely worth purchasing if you are considering it.
