I had a Dicks gift card so I woulda had to spend it anyway. Now, after doing some research I realized how crappy and overpriced this looks compared to some other brands. What do you guys think?

Overpriced yes, should do you fine though, if you dont like you could always return it...But seeing as it was a gift card and a gift, it really doesnt matter as Dick's is over priced on their webstore....

IN-Store is godlike.

I hope not for your sake!

Check how well the bag is packed inside, if its not been packed well the stuffing will drop down to the bottom over time. It makes the bottom of the bag very solid and the top empty which isnt good.

I read a report once saying that one of the smaller boxing equipment companys was using babbies nappys(not used) to stuff the bags with!! i'm not sure who it was now but i know it wasnt TKO.

:cool:

Title bags are good, some are very good.

I have these two bags and a speedball from title, i really like the 3-in-1 bag.

They have a authentic heavy bag at my gym, its not much better than the normal blue and red bags.

got the TKO 100lb bag yesterday and it's fantastic. vacuum filled (not nappies)! hard wearing canvas and good strong chains. it's a really great bag to hit and i'd recommend it to anyone in the market for a heavybag.

Good news then, i'll remember that next time i'm buying.
