Century's ultimate bag with the largest kicking and punching surface area on the market
Century's ultimate training bag, the Wavemaster XXL offers the largest kicking and punching surface on the market.

The striking surface is also high quality, with a durable vinyl cover sitting atop high-density foam. And thanks the low-profile base and ultra-stable weight distribution, this bag will hold up sturdily to your training routines. Built with an extra-large fill hole that accommodates either sand or water, the Wavemaster XXL weighs roughly 270 pounds when filled and assembles tool-free.

A lot of people ask questions as to the durability and versatility of the Wavemaster XXL. It's not the perfect tool by any means. It can't withstand the heaviest punchers and kicks can often completely knock it over. When I use it, I can almost knock it over with punches at will. However, this doesn't mean you can't get a decent workout out of it either. Depending on the way you use it and your weight, style and build, the effectiveness of this product will vary. I'd recommend this for anyone who can't get a heavybag rig, which is far superior to a wavemaster xxl. This tool is about compromise in my opinion. You might need to compromise for this item if you can't get a heavybag, and you might have to comprising which techniques you use on it as well. Of course it's a bit unrealistic in terms of a target, so remember to also mix in lots of pad work with this tool. I feel, do it the product's build.. in a way in promotes improper technique (to a degree) when it comes to combinations and hooks.
Overall, it's a good versatile tool. And, if you're creative you can remove the top and use it for practicing ground and pound if you're into that stuff (to an extent). I hope this video and review helps anyone on the fence about this product! Thank you for reading my review!
So I was reading the comments on here & thought I would reply to each bad review of this bag.
1. Most common
The bag moves - yes it does.
This is not a bad thing, do you know what happens when you constantly hit something that doesnt move? All that energy comes straight back into your body if the bad doesnt move. If you kick it and it doesnt move, your hips take the pressure. Trust me you want a bag to move, no move = no good.
You have to move when hitting this bag. Use it as a sparring partner. In a real fight or in a self defense situation you are not going to wind up and load the strongest kick or punch on your opponent, anyone would or could see that coming. Speed is power.
2. Its light weight - rubbish.
Im 190 pounds 6ft, and the only thing which knocks this bag over when filled with water is a step in back kick. When filled with water, I doubt even Mike Tyson could knock this bag over when filled with water with one punch. Sure it will move when filled with water but it will not fall over. Filled with water its 225, Im actually thinking of taking water out of the bag because it tightens my hips up. When kicking a pad at a MA Club, I have to hold back. Im told I can kick like a horse and this bag can take all the kicks - the only one being a back kick.
225 dead weight is not the same as 225 pounds. 225 dead weight is probably closer to 300+ real weight, if not more.
I was thinking of filling it with sand but even at 225 doing turning kicks I feel it in my knees, so Im going to be taking water out. 300 pounds of sand will probably be too much. I dont something that doesnt move or that is static, if you want that use a wall or pillar then to punch.
3. It works you more than a normal bag - you hit a normal / hanging bag and it swings, their is a pause. This 1-2 second pause allows you to take a breather. With this bag always on the ground, it is you that has to move around and be constantly moving. To me this is faster better than waiting for a bag to come back, you have to work harder when using this bag.
The only thing I dont like is it can make a noise when hit on a hard floor ie tiled, concrete or basement floor. There is an easy solution to this. 1. You buy yourself a thick rug/carpet and place the base on it. I had 2 laying around which are about 3-4 inches thick when folded under the bag. To prevent the bag making a noise, I put these anti slip mats which I use for my total trainer in before I screw the bag into the base or you could even use a small towel.
This prevents the plastic base of the foam bag hitting the sides of the base.
The bag will give you good feedback with kicks, if you feel any pain in your knees or hips then you have gone too hard or not pivoting properly on your feet. I had this recently.
I purchased the one with the markers on it for target practice, provides me with some targets. Would be good if there was some extension on top which would allow somehow some speed ball to be fitted onto this thing as an extra accessory.
Other than that I like the fact I can move 360" around the bag, few punching bags offer this.
Update: After three years of pretty regular use, the base started leaking water and the padding was getting flat in places. But in my opinion three years isn't bad for the price. I replaced it with another one of the same bag.
