Want to Invest in a Heavy Bag
I'm looking to buy a heavy bag to put in my basement. I weigh 147 and im about 5'7". I need a durable bag with a fill that won't settle severely. I'm just wondering what kind of bags do you have/use and how happy are you with it? I've been looking at:
I'm in a dilemma not knowing whether I should do 80 or 100 and which bag is a good one.

I'd personally go to a store and test it out and see which one suits you. I went to a gym that had a boxing room with like 8 different bags (including a uppercut bag, a wrecking ball and a banana bag) at my disposal, I liked the nameless black one that they had because the bag was hard enough for me to hit, and the snapping sound was music to my ears.
Just give it a punch or two, don't be one of those fools who go in a sports store and think they can box.
