    Link to Indiegogo: Smart heavy bag



    I remember Fight Science on NATGEO having some seriously expensive equipment that did something similar. I've been waiting for something like this to hit the market. I would love to see this succeed and progress.

    Here's something similar that's already on the market. $3000 for the home version or $7000 for the pro version.



    Would you rather hit a heavy bag or pads?

    lol at Chael Sonnen advertise that
    But the Ten Count heavy bag is definitely a good idea though. It is only 299$ (provide that it get enough monies) you get some good indication of your bagwork process without being too gaudy about it.

    I would rather hit a bag. That shit costs too much too.

    Considering he outstriked Anderson Silva, i'd say it is a good deal :)

    I have something similar to this, it's an accelerometer that can be mounted to bags, pads, sheilds.
    It's called HERMAN. Google it and you'll see whatI'm talking about.

    Kinda cool, but not earth shattering. Students get a kick out of using it.

    There's only 78 days left in the campaign. He's looking to get $125K. Which is really steep considering the very smark martket this product is geared towards. However something like this could be a game changer for pro fighters.

    Nice I see the price is about the same as what he is asking for his system.

    GnP is part of "striking" now? in that case, there are far better "strikers" in the UFC than Anderson. :eek:

    A pad holder will not give you data of power, speed, etc in measurable increments.

    yes he will. he says things like "more hip!", laughs at me, or the best one shakes his head and looks disgusted. the more disgusted he looks, the weaker/slower/worse technique, etc.. i hit with

    other comments/reactions include: too slow!, your breathing is terrible, slide out!, right straight to my face

    It's been a couple years since this thread was started, did any of you actually buy one of these and if so, what did you think of it?
