    One you chaps might be able to answer...maybe.
    Super lockdown in UK so can't get to the gym hence why I've attempted to knock up this aquabag.

    What are aqua bags like for breaking in new gloves? I've got a few pairs what I got last year that still need to be broken in.

    @Kendodsworth - at first glance that all looks good. I know i had some issues sorting out working load limit (wll) or safe working load (swl) vs maximal or breaking load. I imagine if you're working with less than 100kg, you should be fine. Some water bags work better when they're not 100% filled too.

    So from my experience, there's not much fist impact with aqua bags. I feel it more in my shoulders. Your experience might be different, but I didn't find the impact quite enough to do a good job of breaking in gloves.

    Oh yes well within the safe working load, looking at about 50kg maximum I recon with an A3.

    Yeah it was already pre-made got it off Ebay but I'm sure they'd be metal working shop of fabrication shop nearby which would knock it up fairly cheap.

    I just wanted to avoid loads of quicklinks because I'd have to put the bracket even higher

    I just bought a "Bruiser Aqua Bag" off ebay.
    Wanted a Bob for years but they are so expensive one of these came up used and figured its a good halfway between that and a heavy bag. Used standard aqua bags before and rate them, feels more realistic and less stressful for the joints imo.

    Once I've got it and worked out how to hang it properly (its 160lbs full) I'll post some pics.
