Default Speedbag Height

Pertaining to speedbag height, I believe it is conventional wisdom to line up the bottom of the bag about even with the bottom of your chin. Over several years, I have always taken it upon myself to raise it at least 6-8 inches to accustom myself to punching higher. Some have told me that this method is unnatural, while others have said it is a good idea. Since having a shoulder surgery over a year ago, it has been difficult bringing it back. My physical therapist described a move, similar to striking a speedbag overhead, as something NOT to do. That was over a year ago, and though that same physical therapist might be the one to ask, I am no longer in touch. Anybody have any insight or theories on speedbag height?

I suppose it would be different for each person. Whatever the "proper" way to do it is I'm not sure but I've always done it eye level.

Eye level to the bottom of the bag for me.
