First I bought the Everlast Freestanding Heavy bag. The bag has a flex-spring thing in the middle that absorbs some of the punching power. This makes the bag recoil from a punch and it lets you do some very nice combinations. However, the bag still slides around my carpet, and I constantly needed to move it back to the middle of the room.
Unfortunately the design of the equipment is very bad. The metal upper half (the part you punch) is connected to the plastic lower half by 2 metal bolts. I worked out on the bag for about 10 minutes and the bolts were loose. I tightened the bolts and started again...for about 10 more minutes. This process repeated several times before I saw that the metal bolts were digging into the plastic base. I returned the bag to the store and I purchased the Wavemaster Freestanding Heavybag.
The design of the Wavemaster is one solid piece, so there should be any trouble with metal parts wearing out the plastic. Since the wavemaster is one solid piece, it doesn't have the recoil feature that the Everlast did. THis makes the combo punches feel more awkward. Also, when you hid it hard, it tips backward and it slides around worst than the Everlast did. The tipping and landing after each punch is annoying (probably more so to my downstairs neighbor though).
The idea of a freestanding bag is attractive to a renter or someone with limited space, but in reality they arent that good. This is especially noticeable if you're used to working out with hanging bags.
I would recommend this for average strength people under 5' 10" or so, not super-strong guys over 6 feet. If you try to adjust the height too high, it gets wobbly. The base and column are made of plastic, and while it is sufficiently strong for light workouts it is no substitute for a heavy-duty hanging bag if you are a serious boxer. I recommend it to anyone as a perfect supplemental piece for practicing kicks, though.
Several people said they assembled it in 15 minutes... a 6 year old could put it together etc. Assembly will take more than 15 minutes. Figure on 30-45 minutes at least.
Do not fill with water. Water is not heavy enough and will get moldy. Buy 3-4 50lb bags of sand. Place the unopened bags of sand into the base before attaching the top with the screws. This way if you need to move to a new house or apartment, you can remove them easily and not have to try and move a 200+ lb object.
Have a second person help you put the actual bag together. It is difficult for one person to stuff the padding etc. inside the plastic sleeve of the bag by themselves.
