Pros: An excellent addition to any martial arts studio.
Cons: Just add the legs.
Bob XL Body Opponent Punching Bag
Bob XL Body Opponent Punching Bag is the largest and best body punching bag on the market. Century offers several models of the Bob Body punching bags. From the smaller Bob the Bully body bags for youths to the Bob XL Body Opponent Punching Bag for the more dedicated Martial artists. There is also the standard midrange size that is very popular in martial arts studios; Bob Body Opponent Punching Bag . I like to train with the body bags as well as the conventional heavy bags. I use the heavy bags for extended periods to work on stamina and conditioning. While I use the Bob XL Body Opponent Punching Bag for more precise training. You can really develop your kick and punch combinations with these body bags. The Bob XL Body Opponent Punching Bag is excellent because it has a longer torso and pelvis area. So you are able to work on some lower kicks as well as your high kicks and strikes. This is the largest body bag that Century offers.

Century has been in the Martial Arts business for as long as I can remember. Their products are very popular and are widely used in most varieties of Martial Arts. For the most part I have found Century products to be decent. The Bob bags are good for honing your combinations of kicks, strikes and various combinations. They are also made very well. They would last a very long time if they were just being used by one or two people. They last years in TKD and Karate studios with everyone using them to train. If you already have your heavy bag, head-ache bag, speed bag, a Bob Bag would be a good addition to your training equipment. This bag is cleaned with soap and water. I would recommend this bag to Martial Arts studios and the serious martial artist training for tournaments or other MMA events.
