Is Century Bob good for boxing?
Our opinion is that it feels a bit like a cross between hitting a 30-40 pound bag and hitting mitts. The Bob offers a resistance between the two but you can punch through it. When digging into the body, BOB holds his base pretty well. Almost as if you’re hitting a solid body with a small amount of give.
Can you fill century bob with water?
Because this is a standing bag, the higher up BOB is adjusted on the base, the less resistance you will get. That being said you can get very solid resistance from BOB if you properly fill the base. Filled with just water you can get about 250 lbs in the base.

How do you empty a century Bob?
The sand generally should pour out. I recommend using a 5 gallon bucket to catch the sand. If the sand is stuck, you can add some water and roll the base a round to loosen it up. If you don’t have a good way to transport the sand, make sure you let it dry out before disposing of it.
How do I stop my free standing bag from moving?
Place foam mats beneath the stand to keep it from sliding. Use 2 packs of interlocking non-slip foam mats to help hold your stand still and keep it from sliding. Place the mats on the floor in the area you plan to use your punching bag and then place the stand on top of it.
Do you need gloves for Bob punching bag?
BOB has a little more “squish” than a heavy hanging bag, so you don’t need gloves that are quite as thick. There’s nothing stopping you from using thicker gloves, of course, but slimmer gloves will let you put more emphasis on speed. Some people, especially those with smaller wrists, may still want extra support.
