Materials

Built with durability in mind, the Dripex punching bag's stand is a stainless steel tube wrapped in multiple levels of materials to create a tough striking surface that's able to withstand children, teens, and adults continuous use.

The stainless steel tube is encased in a thickened PU leather and completely wrapped inside EPE foam for a fabric buffer that is Eco-friendly! This products design is tear-resistant and built for faster rebounds for one heavy duty punching bag.

Dual TPU shock absorbing springs also help with noise cancellation. The springs may also be removed to help with vibration reduction. The base holding this product upright comes in your choice of either a red, blue or black color. These are a “no fillings required” flat base with 12 suction cups attached to a flat base. You also have a choice of an all-black, round, thick and plastic base for filling with water, sand or your choice of filling products. The round base is also equipped with the 12 suction cups for added balance and tipping resistance.
The flat “no fillings required” base is made up of steel and also comes with a silicone edging to soften the metal edges. Both base options available only work on most flat surfaces due to the suction cups.

The Dripex Punching bag for adults and children does not come with fillings for the round fill-able base. Preferred fillings must be purchased separately.

Set Up

There's minimal setup required for the Dripex punching bag. Both base options are a similar setup process and both are meant to be easily done. The product will be shipped in two different packages due to it's larger size. One box will have the tube, the other will have the base.

Simply attach the tube to the base and then place any provided screws and bolts etc in the correct positions and attach firmly. Once those two separate pieces are secured together, the suction cups on the base of the Dripex punching bag may also be secured by applying a small amount of pressure to the base.

Filling Recommendations

When it comes to filling your base the same question tends to arise. Which filling material is the best filling material to use? The best filling to use for this product is sand. Sand offers more weight for your punching bag and gives you more of a sturdy recoil no matter how much of a kick your punch packs!

Water is an alternative to sand but would be best used for those who do not require a lot of weight to hold the punching bag upright. Though water is a nice alternative to sand it can also be a bit messier when it comes to draining.

There are other products out there for use when it comes to filling your punching bag. The recommendation of sand is purely a suggestion.

A funnel may be helpful for filling the base. The hole for filling the base is a bit narrow but a funnel is a simple solution.

Durability

The Dripex freestanding punching bag for adults and children is built to last against a continuous blast of kicks and punches over an extended period of time. Regardless of which color or base is desired, the bag and base design is manufactured to last and durable enough for rough use.

The materials used for this product are sure to hold up against a blast of kicks and punches from even an experienced fighter! The fill-able base is the more durable out of the options as the “no fill” base is designed for children.

The base for both available options is also durable and will last long term as long as it's used and maintained properly.

Maintenance

Caring for the Dripex freestanding punching bag is fairly simple. The leather surface can be cleaned with a leather cleaner daily and the plastic base can be wiped down with a light cleaner as needed. It is not recommended the springs get wet, wiping them down with a dry cloth may be sufficient.

This punching bag is heavy duty and will last against consistent use. The only suggestion in regards to caring for the punching bag while being used is as follows: do not strike the bag in the same spot continuously. Move around and strike the bag in different areas because remaining in the same area during use may cause the bag to cave in around that overworked area.

When the punching bag isn't in use for long periods of time it is suggested the bag be collapsed down and completely covered with a protective cover and stored away in a room temperature area. High exposure to heat, cold or weather may damage this product causing it to look worn and possibly weaken the product.

Portability

Once the Dripex freestanding punching bag is completely set up it may be heavier and more difficult to move, though it's not impossible. To remove the suction cups that are gripped on the floor, simply use a thin object, like a credit card, to slide under the sealed cups to release the grip, repeat with all 12 suction cups.

The fill-able base was manufactured to be able to roll on it's side for transportation from one area to the next. Rough surfaces or dragging the punching bag may scrape up the base. Move the bag slowly and carefully as it may be quite heavy once it's completely filled up.
Be mindful of the Dripex freestanding punching bag and all of its parts, as well as your surroundings, as you are moving the bag from one area to another, so you don't end up breaking anything.
