But before you get stuck in to the review, it might be worth reading over the punch bag stand Buyer's Guide below. The Buyer's Guide outlines the three different types of punch bag stand while weighing up the pros and cons of each option.
Punch bag stand | A Buyer's Guide
When it comes to choosing a punch bag hanger there are three options:
1) Ceiling hanger
2) Wall mount hanger
3) Floor standing hanger
Neither option is better than the other. The deciding factor hinges on personal preference and/or the facility in which you plan to hang your boxing punch bag.
The three types of boxing bag stand have their own positives and negatives.
Ceiling punching bag hangers
For example, ceiling hangers are great because your range of movement around the bag is completely unrestricted (as long as you don’t position it too close to a wall or in a corner). But, once the hanger has been bolted in place, it's a pain to move.
Other limiting factors of ceiling hangers are that they require a lot of space and high ceilings. If your home gym is a converted conservatory or garage, it's unlikely that you'll be able to suspend a boxing bag from a ceiling hanger.
Wall mounted boxing bag hangers
Wall mounts offer more flexibility than ceiling hangers in terms of where they can be positioned. But again, before spending an hour or two bolting one to the wall, you’ve got to be absolutely certain the position is perfect prior to revving up the drill.
Also, it might be worth assessing your boxing abilities before opting for a wall mount. If you plan to use your punch bag a lot, you might want to consider if the wall that you plan to bolt your hanger to is durable. For it's unlikely that thin internal walls or plaster board will be strong enough to support a heavy boxing bag that's put to regular use.
