  • The face...

    I made this uppercut bag out of an old footstool a couch cushion and ALOT of duct tape, or as it is known in the Rio Grande Valley, mexican gold. I had it up last year but knocked it down and was going to throw it away until I saw a post where Alan put up pictures of a similar product(much nicer and superior material). I salvaged it added a layer of cushioning from an old sofa (I'm ghetto), and had three of my friends that frequent my gym put the thing up... you wouldn't beleive how heavy it is!

    my handwraps gave me no protection on my injured nuckle when i was knocking my home made maize bag about 2day, so i used tissue padding across the nuckles and then duck tape over it... gave SO MUCH protection, no pain from my nuckle what so ever, could punch as hard as i could and i barely felt anything. south of the border engineering truely is the way forward!

    p.s all creations inspired by hispanicinapanic and his south of the border enginering

      That's crazy Gez I do that too! I use sports tape as a base and pack cotton balls on my knuckles, then I wrap them in duct tape. I saw a sparring partner of Floyd Mayweather Jr. do the same on 24/7. It's inexpensive and super strong and I think the Mayas used it to build the pyramids... lol!

          Heh, I noticed you must have one hell of a good punch. The ground shakes when you punch!

            I really like the Deep thud of that bag on the wall. The sounds really accentuates the fist contact, and looks devasting....
