1. yes, no instructions: you really don't need them, not rocket science to put this together.
2. You need sand! This is the pro version not the quick and convenient one with water.
3. I duct taped the bag to the pole just for extra support.
4. yes, its like a speed and reflex bag in one, it takes no prisoners.
5. It's not that loud at all, so don't listen to that other guy.
All and all, very impressed. Now lets see how long it lasts.
i contacted ringside customer service to try and get a replacement for the plastic piece and they said i would have to purchase the entire pole assembly for $99.
After a month of beating the hell out of this daily, i managed to knock the head clear across the room. The red piece of fabric that goes around the plastic neck where the ball sits had come off and was lodged up into the ball...Super glued it back on and it's fine again.
Problem 2: i had to screw the head back on extremely tight because it kept coming loose and the head would go flying across the room...
Problem 3: this thing is LOUD... I have this in my large loft attic and someone said they could hear it from the street, and 3 floors below me in the laundry room....keep in mind there is 60 pounds of sand in bottom..you guys need to go back to your original design with the drum instead of the sand bags that sit on top of it..
and of course as my original review said, you need a 1.5+ inch inflation needle to pump this up, otherwise your needle with be too short
Would purchase a different brand if I'd read this review from someone else to begin with.
(It's fun to play with anyways)
UPDATE : YEARS later I am STILL using this. The super glue holding the head on is still holding after all this time. The ONLY issue i have with this is that you have to pump it up every time you use it because air leaks out of the head, but it's not a big deal.
I actually decided to give it a 4 star instead of 3 because it's lasted all this time.
To be quite frank, I'm glad I started with the Everlast and I still rate that bag at 5 stars. The less intense bag allowed me to work more on basic fundamentals - developing my jab, cross, etc and returning to proper stance after throwing my punch. The Cobra is less forgiving - lol. With this bag your response needs to be more automatic, the response is close to instantaneous and if you aren't ready it can show you the stars.
The bag offers a truly fun workout, building timing and accuracy, kudos Ringside - nicely done!
I bought this bag to use in the basement during the cold Chicago winters to stay in shape while I watch my toddler during the day since I cant go out in the garage while im doing daddy day care. The assembly was easy and it will fit in a small space.
I took the advice of another reviewer but rather than fill the bags with sand I went to a local gardening center and bought some cheap limestone rock. The bag cost me around $7 and I filled individual plastic grocery bags (doubled up) and put them in both of the weighted black bags that come with the reflex bag. I was being over cautious because I didn't want them to break and have sand/rocks pouring out on the floor but im sure you could get away with just putting the rocks straight into the bags and skipping the whole plastic grocery bag part.
Im 5'9" and 180 lbs and this reflex bag has stood up to about a months worth of work outs (5 3min rounds every other day). Let me say that if you are really planning on blasting away you should probably buy a heavy bag which is constructed for taking that kind of beating. I pretty much throw a lot of straight punches(jabs) with a couple hooks here and there and am not trying to kill this thing and its doing great. I think if you are going to be winding up on this thing day after day its not going to last, hence buy a heavy bag. But if you use this thing for what it was constructed for in my opinion, punching quickly and using reflexes to throw quick combinations back at it, then this will be a great exercise tool for indoors at your home/basement/condo/man cave.Read more ›
