my dad doesn't recommend that i use the ceiling or wall mounts cus they fall off from his experience. what do you say from ur experience?

i did visit a fight club. the local ones are crap. none have boxing. the nearest half decent fight club i visited is 40 miles back and forth. 3 days a week.
what i really didn't like about the place was that it smelled like ass-crack and it felt too ghetto for my taste.
ventilation wasn't good at all.

From my experience: No wall mount has ever fallen off in any way, the only way I could see one falling is if it wasen't mounted properly. Only once has a ceiling mount fallen(the one I still use), all I did was redrill and remount while also adding some wood adhesive to the screws, but it is still unlikely to fall unless you didn't mount it properly and the one I have now hasen't fallen in 2 years w a 125lb bag hanging from it. I do only recommend that you only use a ceiling mount if the rafters are exposed. You can also reinforce the wall mount by mounting 2 2x4's to the studs parallel to each other then mount the wall mount to that.
It all comes down to either spending no more than $400 on a mount and bag and very unlikely have to remount if it comes down versus spending 1K-3k on a combo set that imo most are crap.

yea i'll probably go with a wall mount that is reinforced with 2X4. i'm also talking to a handy man friend to see if he can build me some custom stuff.

Lowes and Home Depot usually sell a table top made from pine plywood about 1 inch thick. It comes naked (rough with no stain) so you will have to sand it and apply some polyeurethane to it. You can then swap your existing cheap particle board platform with that one and you will have an awesome platform at less then 100. This is what I did. You can also apply rubber or felt stickys between the platform and the mount to reduce vibration.
