    I never accused him of claiming to be an expert. He questions me all the time about my credentials. Why is it so outrageous that I ask him?

    Dunno if I punched on a gel bag before, sounds like it would be fun to try but I have no room for equipment at home. The streets are my treadmill.

    I'll admit, those gloves look really nice but they aren't going to look good for very long after prolonged use. Personally, I'm questioning the stitching they put across the top of the glove but again, if its only meant for bag use then I suppose they don't get that tore up. Gloves fall apart quicker from catching, parrying, blocking than punching it seems.

    If you need an inexpensive but durable punching bag, then it's best to buy yourself a bag with sand. As far as I know, they are not so expensive, and they show themselves perfectly. I'm telling you this, as a person who has been boxing for about five years. I actively competed in various competitions before, but then I got a head injury, and now I have left this sport because I can only aggravate my health, and I don't want that.

    If you need a new heavy bag just use your local Social Justice warrior professor from the Humanities department in your nearby college.

    Do you duck tape wrap a new heavy bag?
    I notice most people wait until the bag is all worn out to get a little more life out of it.
