so, yeah...my heavy bag has literally zero stuffing up top and it's all at the bottom...

I know taking it down and kicking it/etc is supposed to get it back up top, but it seems like every time I do that, and sit down on 10 or so shots, it all goes back how it was.after like 3 shots really. So, my question is this,what can I do to keep the stuffing how it's supposed to be. Maybe take it down and get it all to the top, then tie a small rope around the bottom? and then I was thinking maybe put newspaper over that and tightly duct tape on top of paper (to prevent bag getting ****ed up from duct tape glue..) and wrap it around?

anyone have any suggestions? would be highly appreciated,thanks.

I have this same problem.

But mine is a ****ty everlast bag...

I took it down and started jumping on the bottom, figuring it would loosen it up some.... ya, didn't do anything.

I think I need to do something with duct tape, but there's a specific way to tape it so the stuff doesn't come out. The best bags I've ever worked on were duct taped up...

I wish a guy who's been around for a long time and knew the ropes would step in here. I bet Ross would know.

not a bad idea for getting the top hard but this particular bag is unopenable.

also it would still leave the bag hard where I throw body shots.

thanks for the suggestion and bump, tho.

ps I'll take one of those burgers. got any wheat hamburger buns?...heh.

u could try taping it super tight, like a girdle only around the bottum so it forces the stuffin to stay up higher because there's no room around the bottom of the bag.

Turn the bag upside down and beat the heck out of it with a baseball bat to get the filling to settle at the top, then duct tape the bottom of the bag.
