Everlast Omniflex Free Standing Heavy Bag
The Omniflex bag is an excellent free standing punching bag for both serious martial arts athletes and amateurs. Unlike a lot of other free standing punching bags, the bag has a long neck that will move back and forth when hit. This special design is great because it allows you to work on your speed, timing and accuracy. The design of the bag is also great for practicing a variety of striking, from kicking, knees, elbows and more.
The Omniflex is very good for both those who are focusing on developing power striking as well as cardio workouts. The movement of the bag helps to simulate a real life combat experience. This lets you work on and develop techniques that most other bags can’t provide. The design of the bag lets youwork on both distance shots as well as your close range techniques, all while dealing with a moving bag, which forces you to be accurate and focused.
The bag is well built and should last a long time. The bag is made with very good quality shock absorbing foam that can take punishment from people of all sizes and power. Along with the foam layer, the bag is made up of a durable outer shell. We found the bag to very capable of withstanding some serious punishment, which is what you want out of any good quality punching bag.
The base of the bag can be filled with water and sand and weighs approximately 130 pounds. The weight of the bag keeps the actual base sturdy, even while the bag portion swings bag and forth. It has an adjustable height (up to 67 inches) that makes it perfect for fighters of all sizes, as well as practicing striking at different levels.
Compared to other free standing bags, the Everlast Omniflex is much lighter when filled up with water or sand. This makes it easy to move out of the way when you’re done training. Overall we think this is a very high quality bag that you should definitely consider.
