Literally nothing on the Earth is as exciting as watching Rocky IV. That epic battle between Rocky and Ivan Drago is etched into the mind of literally every real man. And it’s not just the fight itself – it’s the training montage that really gets the testosterone pumping. Even thinking about it makes me want to punch something, and I’m a complete nerd....
So, the appeal of this should be obvious. Aside from any 80's boxing movie references, this is a fantastic combo for toning and general fitness and is sure to be an absolute winner with any fitness savvy guy. The great thing is that it’s not caveman bluster. Using a speed ball properly takes some serious practice, co-ordination and fitness. Let’s see if your guy is up to the challenge....
I bought this on July 6th and it was at my house on July 9th, so i was very impressed with the shipping! The stand itself and all the parts came in very well packaged and all fit together perfectly. I put all of this together in around an hour and a half at a pretty relaxed pace. The heavy bag is stunning; it has a perfect mix of being firm but not too much where it kills your hands after a workout. My only gripe is the speed bag has yet to arrive. I am surprised on how fast this all came and maybe the speed bag will be in on a later date, but as of right now, I can't give you the full five stars. An update soon to come.
The speed bag platform came with a small crack but they're replacing it. Other then that A+. Also weights and a good speed bag swivel are recommended. You can get 100lbs of weight at Walmart for 30 bucks and a good swivel for 20 at Dicks.
I got this bag and stand a few days ago. Took me awhile to put together...word of advice, do NOT tighten all the bolts until it’s all put together, otherwise you will have issues since you need wiggle room. It’s so sturdy. I am not a hard hitter, but still will get some weights to weigh it down. Love this so much!!! Definitely worth the money!
There isn't much choice for stands in this price range. I ended up going with a different heavy bag, different swivel and speed bag. But the stand is alright. Weight on the pegs is a must! Overall the quality of the frame itself is very good. It goes together easily and seems to be holding up very well. I recommend the stand itself.
Great deal. Make sure you check the height of your ceiling and the space you will need for it. It is quite large. Came in two shipments from FedEx.
