    I would really prefer to buy a heavy bag I can hang but I have nowhere to hang it in my house.Im just wondering if there is anyway to use it without hanging it in a good way.

    If not how are the "bags' that support themselves with a stand or whatever. Are they just as effective and worth getting?

    please reply

    Bags that have their own stands suck balls. I bought one thinking it would be just as good and it is not. The stand (usually filled with water or sand) moves so much and jumps around then if you want it low enough for leg kicks the top is too low for punches to the head (unless you are training to fight midgets).

    As far as using it w/o hanging you can do gnp drills. It's just like hitting the bag but only on the ground.

    there are a ton of these threads around but i help you out anyways here my 2 cents
    buy an everlast stand on amazon.com i got an everlast one for $120 shipped and picked up a double ended everlast bag which bungies to the bottom of the stand and it works great much more stable than those all in one water based one and you dont have to fill themyou wont have to worry about it walking around if you add the weights or sandbags to the base of the stand

    I have a Century Cornerman, from Karate Depot, but I think it's been discontinued...anyway, the max weight limit on it is 70lbs, but I have a 130lb Fairtex banana on the fucker, and I had to add a shock spring and maybe 200lbs worth of bricks to hold the thing down (slides around my garage with every hard kick), but dammit, I love the ghetto rigged thing...


    BTW, stay away from those water bags, unless you're a girl doing Tae bo
