    Hello,

    This is my first post here and I am really looking for some guidance from experience folks here... I am getting ready to purchase a good Muay thai bag and I have shortlisted Fairtex 6ft banana bag HB6 and Fairtex Angle Bag HB12. I like the making of the angle bag and it seems to be great for almost everything viz Low-high kicks, upper cuts, boxing, knees etc... The 6ft is the classic and I find that in almost every gym here... I have never personally seen the fairtex angle bag... Can somebody having experience with these bags share their experience? Also my other constraint is that I have very limited space in my room...

    Thank you!

    I have both the Fairtex angle bag and the 6ft bag at my gym. I would't buy either one again. Just buy a normal Twins bag. There is a reason why you don't see all of the specialty bags in Thailand. Just the basic leather/nylon Twins/Windy/ThaiSmai bag.

    if you can afford it then KO Fightgear. i love mine and its is built like a tank. feels great to kick and punch. unfortunately i haven't used it in 6 months since i moved out of my old place :icon_sad:

    What country are you in???

    If you are in the USA, then check out KO fight gear Thai bags as well as the Ring to cage angle bag.

    I have the fairtex angle bag in my gym and its ok, its hard but sort of breaks in after a bit. I think the R2C is nicer though.

    Thank you very much guys... I am currently in USA and will be moving soon and would need an unfilled bag... I have really heard great stories about Fairtex but your comments actually changed my mind... I want something that will last longer and feels great during workout and I believe Twins / Windy / KO is the way to go over fairtex based on the comments...

    Where can I get a better deal on these bags unfilled?
