Are you searching for a heavy punching bag that is suitable for any martial art and fitness purpose? Then, I recommend to check out this Ringside Muay Thai Heavy Bag.
It is a solid full-length Muay Thai punching bag and thanks to its long body you can practice punches and kicks. Also, it is made from high-quality materials that absorb impacts giving a safe and comfortable usage. It is so well-made that it is recommended for both home and commercial usage.
Size & Weight
The bag itself is 100 lbs when it is filled. Hence, it does not swing too much even if powerful punches and kicks are placed on it. Users higher than 6’2″ and over 210 lbs, and even professionals claim that the swinging is affordable. However, by lowering it about an inch off the ground will minimize the swinging.
The length is 72″ (182 cm), so it is far longer than traditional hanging bags. But, we are talking about a Muay Thai gym bag. Thanks to this length we can practice all types of punches and kicks that are uses in MMA, kickboxing, and Muay Thai. But it can be useful for fitness purposes.
The width is 13″ (33 cm) which is a bit narrower as the usual. However, users do not find it a problem at all, since they can develop their punching accuracy even better.
Since this Ringside Muay Thai bag is rather heavy, it does not swing around. Hence, you will not need so much space to use while you train with it.
But, since we are talking about a tall bag take the measurements of the place you would like to hang it. And do not forget about extra length of the hanging chains and the hook assembly. You can use a stand as well, but it is not recommended.
Materials Inside & Outside
It comes filled, so you just have to hang it. The filling is unknown but provides a comfortable feel when it is hit. Also, it holds its shape well even after intense usage. The filling does not sink to the bottom. But you can add more filling quickly if you want since it has a zipper at the top of the bag.
The outer shell is made from synthetic material that provides an almost genuine leather experience. On the surface, there are no leather or latex name patches that usually stick out and scrape the knuckles.
The bag itself is firm but soft enough to punch it with bare hands and kick it without shin pads. So, the powerhide feature works well. This is especially a useful feature for pro users.
Hitting and kicking it is relatively quiet, so you can use it in your garage or basement without disturbing the people around you.
- Well-shaped, full-length heavy bag suitable for any martial art.
- Affordable swinging so you do not need a huge floor footprint to work out with.
- Professional surface and filling providing an excellent user experience for both kicking and punching (even with barefoot and hands).
- It comes filled and with all the accessories, so it is ready to hang.
- Compared to similar hanging Muay Thai bags the price is better.
- No bottom loop to fix it to the floor, but for this length, it is not necessary.
- Tall and heavy so your ceiling must be high and strong enough to hang it safely.
If you check out the customer reviews here, you can see that almost all the buyers say Ringside is worth its price. The rating is almost 5-star. The customer support is helpful and quickly answer any questions you have.
The best alternative is the Outslayer Muay Thai bag which a bit more cheaper, weighs 130 lb and a commercial level equipment.
