Personally I think you should go a step up and purchase the 135 lb. DeMarco deluxe heavy bag. It absorbs all the punishment you want to dish out with just enough give to make you feel like you've accomplished something. This is for when you absolutely, positively wanna hit the heavy bag with everything but the kitchen sink. Accept no substitutes. You've probably seen Adrien Broner use the 135 lb DeMarco deluxe model recently in the middle of the ring with epic results. Imho, it's the best bag in the business.

good pick. Imo ringside make the best punching bags if you're willing to pay a little.

Go Marciano style and get a 300lb custom bag. And why isn't this in the training forum?

I'm looking at the same ringside bag. My 80 lb ringside bag has held up extremely well but it's just too light.
