Thanks for your input. Both Mike and you have given me some insight as to what is best for me.
Now as for product, I know, I know quality. But with a family and all practical is the best for me. I went and purchased a Everlast 100 lbs at Academy Sports (70.00). I feel that is best for me right now, as I will be using it for a cardio/conditioning type workout.
I go to a cardio based boxing session twice a week and this will give me that extra in between classes and also strengthen by punch. Maybe my kid will knock it around a few times.....we can only hope.
