bag height

I don't really think my bag is too high, but I could be wrong. I noticed that most baggers tend to stand still and change the angle of the strike with little hand movement and even less body movement. I would imagine this is the reason your bag should be placed at a perfect height to maximize response time? In my case, I tend to move around the bag for my angles, and I adjust for the rebound which may compensate for the height of my platform. In either case I hope to learn from all of you and your unique styles and will adjust accordingly. Thank you sir.

yes it seems as if you have more of a fighting/boxing style, while we focus on the tricks and exercise... I guess both means come to the same end... just different styles.... looks good regardless....
let us know what style you are aiming for and I am sure everyone can lend a hand if needed..... otherwise I think you are looking good ....

The trap-pining style is very effective with a higher bag. It is a difficult and skillful workout. Do not underestimate the skill it takes to do this. HispanicMakingPanic has very good timing and eye-hand coordination, and I imagine he could change to another style quite easily.

Humbled

I ain't sappy but it took me a whole day to register that Alan Kahn approved of my rudimentary technique. Without sounding stereotypical, Viva el Internet!

does a wooden speedbag frame have a comparible stability to a metal one? i was going to create mine from metal, but it would be a ball ache haaving to get it all drilled and welded at a worshop. i would prefer to use wood if its as good? iff not then no matter, will stick to metal

metal is stronger - but will vibrate more - due to less material needed to be on the frame. wood can be built up pretty thick - the thicker the strong and the more absorbent of sound that it will be. You got me thinking now.... maybe I will make a all wood frame too.... although I do have a nice welding setup in the garage....

The way you perform your method of trap-pinning the bag, mixed in with punching combo's, is not rudimentary. It is a skilled way to use the bag and your videos demonstrates superb timing. You are well trained in that area.

Thumbs up Great Idea.

Sandbags on top of the platform sounds like a great idea.

Thanks bro.
