I purchased this item to add variety to my workout. I'm really enjoying the diversity it adds but wish the screws to secure the torso to the post was better. I put on my favorite music and punch to the beat. Sometime during the 3rd song, I hear a screw fall out. I have to stop the wonderful rhythm and sweating I've got going, take off my gloves, find the screwdriver and replace the screws. I also have to re-tighten all the others because they're getting ready to fall out too. This is irritating but, I enjoy punching this guy so much that I will keep him. I just chalk the loose screws up to me having a more powerful punch than I realized. Also, you may need a 2nd person to help secure bob to the post as it's very difficult to hold the torso in place and screw the screws in at the same time.I had no problem filling the base with sand because I had a plastic container, that after cutting a hole in the bottom to match the fill hole, made it very quick and easy. Bob is sitting on a small rug in my garage and stays in place, waiting for his next punch.
