My corporate Gym bought one of these. It is really a lot of fun and takes a hit well. You can adjust the height to big tall muscular dude or short muscular dude. It takes kicks, hits, whatever you throw at it. But you know, that didn't last. All it took was a few disrespectful guys with monster kicks and blows and the silicone ripped away right round the nuts that hold the back to the base. The guys really abuse the equipment. I've seen them on the bags jump in the air like a movie towards the bag and beat down on the head. Har har har, and now we don't have Bob to beat on any more. The bags can take a beating like these guys give, but Bob couldn't.Bob was only around for a few months and half that time with a zip-tie fix. The gym tried to zip tie with new holes and cobble Bob back together but I think he eventually ripped and ended up in the dumpster because he's gone.In short, if I were a gym I wouldn't spend the hundreds on this. It'll break. But if I have the $ personally (or you're a karate gym where there is discipline, supervision, and people respect the equipment), it is a lot of fun and you can really do well with it.
