Well Bruce was incredibly cool and was a big part of my early interest in the martial arts back then but.....

Prolast makes this one at 750lbs. 50lbs heavier than Bruce's old bag. I think it would be interesting to train on something this size and try to move that beast. I've heard there are a few bags around 300lbs in the Mayweather gym. And for someone at 147, I wonder if it's focused on power generation.

Weird, if you read the product description, it says 500 pounds, but the advertisement title says 750 pounds.

I see that. Maybe that supplier only has the 500. Looking at the manufacturer directly, they definitely have the 750 as advertised along with a 650 size and going on down.

I would imagine the most difficult thing with those bags would be hanging the suckers. Who the heck wants to lift a seven hundred pound beast?

Sheesh... would probably take a few people just to get it up I imagine.
I wonder what that bag would feel like on the bottom after the inside has settled over time. Probably would be foot or fist breaking brick. I will have to get one of these eventually... when i have 3k to waste on a bag lol.

I imagine hitting it is much the same as hitting a makiwara. And a makiwara is a lot easier to install.
