This is absolutely the cheapest price I could find for it at $229 with tax included. I beat the crap out of it daily. I am very glad i decided to purchase and would do it again. No workout is comparable.

I bought backpacking equiptment a few weeks ago. But still.This bob has taken multiple rigorous beatings from multiple people of varying sizes. A friend of mine that used it is 265bls. It is very sturdy. Here's what you do:1.) Buy the bob online or at Sports Store2.) Go to home depot. Get locktite for permenantly fixing the screws3.) While at home depot, pick up 4 X 50lbs bags of sand. (just a few dollars each)4.) Put together. Get yourself a nice sized funnel. Saw off the small end with a hacksaw until the opening is the same size as the bob's5.) Use duct tape to secure the funnel to the bob. (you imagine the sand will easily pour into the bob, but it won't, because when you buy the sand it will more than likely be a little damp, and it will clump)6.) Make sure the bob is in a spot you want to keep it. Shovel sand into funnel with a hand shovel, have the hand shovel or stick ready to jab down the sand into the whole when it clumps. Have patience. Because of the clumping sand, this takes awhile.7.) Light a dubey. (washington and colorado residents only)8.) Fill the bob completely with water - this will give the bob about a 250+lbs base if you didn't dump the sand everywhereHope this helps. Enjoy your bob.

I love this product, it's a great workout punching Bob. Filled with sand it does move some, but not much, on a concrete floor. My only issue is that it was not shipped with a cap for the base (to cover where you fill the base). I contacted century and was informed I had to purchase a cap, when I had already paid over $200 for the item!

I'm a big, lumbering, 6'4, 270 pounder. Not 'quick' by any means, but I do throw very hard punches that move mountains.Watched a few videos of this on youtube, average sized guys working it hard and the BOB unit wasn't budging. There were also some videos of guys 'showing off' at how presumably harcore they were for knocking one over with a huge running kick. Could it truly be stable enough to withstand repeated, full power striking from a heavyweight? I was really hoping that to be the case, since I live in an apartment and a 'rocking back and forth' base wouldn't be acceptable to downstairs neighbors.Got it, filled it with a water/sand mixture for max weight (it is heavy as heck) but intuitively I just wasn't seeing it staying put to a hard punch, given the mechanical advantages involved with that narrow and round base, the long, tall body unit. Sure enough, no sooner than I laid a medium straight right on it, the base instantly tilted up from the floor and the whole unit started wobbling pretty good, which probably sounded like thunder to the poor people downstairs.Still, that aside, I do rate this pretty high.I now use it more for speed type work and striking accuracy practice that doesn't involve hitting hard enough to move the base, then just use a heavy bag at the gym for power striking. The result of having this in my living room and using it for striking accuracy is that my striking accuracy has gotten insanely better.So, overall, 4 stars of 5. I deduct the one star since I think they should probably be a bit more forthcoming with the facts for us big guys, if you're over 200 and/or a powerful striker you're going to wobble it but as a training tool, it's pretty damn good.

It's like kicking a human in the head but I can do it as hard as I want, that's enough for me. I also don't have issues with him falling apart or jumping across the room like all these other people say they do. I think the problem with their Bob is that he's been training with sissy boys and became one himself.

I got the original BOB about 2 years ago. It was one of the best investments I've ever made.The problem with normal bags is that you don't get the experience of strikiing an actual opponent's chin, nose, solarplexus, and so forth. Striking a big cylinder is a different experience; good for building power and form, but it always left me wondering whether I would actually be able to pinpoint my targets "when the time comes".After savagely beating my BOB for 2 years, I know I am totally capable of blasting a human opponent with high precision powerful strikes. I have trained combinations of all kinds of strikes, on all the key targets. There is no substitute for training with BOB.I have sparred, and I would say to new people that you don't know fighting if you haven't sparred, because 80% of fighting is the dynamic of movement and defense, so no stationary object will totally prepare you. But, hitting a lifelike opponent regularly is as good as it gets.You have to fill it with sand. Wet sand. Water is not heavy enough. Even with sand, it will slide a bit on wood, but it is fine. It will tip over with heavy front kicks.I recently bought the new BOB, and it is superior to the original style. The skin seems better somehow, and the thing seems firmer, the overall shape is better. I'm hoping that the new mounting hardware holds up better, because the bolts on the back of my first one tore through the rubber within a month, so I had to try to glue the body onto its pole.It lasted a couple years like that, until the throat finally tore open. The new one has two sets of bolts instead of one; after 3 hours of training, so far so good.
