What's up Guys,

This review is one I did over at FightHype on one of the better water-filled heavy-bags on the market.

The exterior is a very tough {Heavy-Duty Vinyl} and from the www reports, it will last and can take a ton of punishment.

The inner-core is a plastic tube that holds 12+ gallons of water. I noticed that it can be over-filled with both water & sand due to the inner core design. Which is good if you want to boost the weight. I boosted the weight to 170lbs by using 75 lbs. of large gravel and water - without any negative effects.

It also, has a 3" thick foam liner that goes between the outer shell and the core bottle, adding to the feature of reducing injuries from impact stress.

Overall, I love the bag ... I workout on it five days a week and get a pretty serious workout. So for those who think water bags are not up to par with sand-filled bags .... Think again and try this bag.


Advertisment - Specs - Price - Pictures:

Offering all the great benefits of the original Hydrocore the Hydrocore XL offers a bigger striking surface. A larger inner water core, and more weight. Made to be stronger and even more durable than the original Hydrocore, the XL is an excellent choice for power hitters and anyone else who is interested in a heaver bag with a more realistic and life like feel

•Four web straps support steel chains and a 2 inch ring for hanging
•Bottom loop for attaching a tie down strap. Tie down strap is not included
•120lbs. When filled
•14" diameter x 52" tall

$149.95 ea. .... I only paid $101.00 getting it from a direct distributor.

Hope this helps those looking to get a heavy bag for the home gym.
