Filling

The bag portion of this fight simulator is filled with foam. Typically, punching bags are filled with shredded material or sandbags. In fact, sometimes it is a mixture of both. The problem with these types of fillers is that they settle. When this happens you may end up with exceptionally hard areas throughout your bag. This can lead you to injuries. The foam in this bag is high-density and can seriously stand up to a beating. This is, obviously, a good thing as combat training can get a bit rough. The foam that it is made from won't break down easily which means you will be able to use this training tool for years to come. Foam is great for absorbing impact. When you use a material that absorbs impact well, it leads to better feeling muscles and joints after strenuous workouts.

Overall, the base does a decent job at keeping your bag in place but it may be an aspect that Century needs to keep working on.

Weight

The bag portion of this free-standing system weighs right around 110 lbs. This makes it appropriate for a variety of training purposes. There is no specific weight given for the base of this product.
