  • Everlast Heavy Bag Stand (Model # 4790)

    The Heavy Bag/Speed Bag stand is a good piece of equipment. The heavy bag part of it definitely requires add'l weight (hint: bags of sand are much cheaper than the amount of barbell plates you'll need to keep this thing from moving - I use 200 pounds of bags of sand to keep it in place. I was able to get these for about $2.50 a piece from Home Depot. Also be sure you get a double end heavy bag too (i.e. one with a bottom D-ring), otherwise you'll get too much bag swing. Try to get a heavy bag with a foam liner. Some of the cheaper bags are like punching a rock, which won't do wonders for your workout enthusiasm.

    You can also put a true double end light bag on this portion of the unit, which is a nice change of pace from the heavy bag. (The light double end bag is the small inflatable that has two bungees holding it at about chest level and reverberates like mad when you hit it.) It will occasionally smack the center support, which makes a lot of noise, but otherwise has no ill effects.

    The speed bag platform is a bit flimsy, especially on the earlier versions of this model where the "drum" or rebound board is two pieces (the latest versions of this model use a single piece drum). If you become moderately proficient at the speed bag in any amount of time you'll outgrow this aspect of the unit. Part of the problem is that the single vertical pole to which the speedbag drum attaches will flex when you get the bag moving really fast, and that can throw off your timing. Use the smallest size speed bag possible to minimize this inertia. Lastly, the speed bag platform doesn't really adjust high enough for people over 6'2" in height, and if you're over 6'1" or so you're going to need to use a small or xtra small speed bag to have it hang at the correct height (i.e. belly of bag at mouth/chin level).

    Here is my set up for my heavy bag/speedbag it is also the Everlast stand but tubular steel style. Stand is probably a newer style from what Tim has but also requires added weight at base when you hit the heavy bag. I oppted to put mine on the back half of the covered patio. They have these at Sports Authority at close-out price as of now ($99.00) The drum head is a
    24" one piece, all pieces bolt together and has a powder coated finish that won't rust. It will hold up to a 100lb heavy bag the only down side to this is the speed bag is attached to the same tubular pole as the heavy bag so the weight of the Heavy Bag leans in so as the speedbag drum is now not perpendiculer to the stand as seen in photo.

      The pole does lean noticeable away from the speed bag. I wonder if making a bottom table rest underneath the heavybag would help. Put a table or something under the bag that is about 3 inches higher than the bottom of the heavybag. Set the bottom of the heavybag up on the table top and it would take a lot of the weight off the pole - and perhaps not bend it to the point that it angles your rebound board.

      just a thought.

          I've not seen the angle adjustable model anywhere in quite some time, but who knows maybe they still have some in the warehouse?
