Usefulness: You don’t know what it means to have a realistic boxing experience until you’ve met BOB (Body Opponent Bag). Literally, the best ‘bag’ I have ever trained with. Whether you’re boxing, kickboxing, or practicing poison strikes, BOB is your man.
With full facial detail (including an ear orifice), and musculature (not including the bones), BOB is composed of a skin made of high strength plastisol (plastic that feels similar to a soft dolphin) & an inner cavity filled with durable urethane foam. His height is adjustable between 5′6″ & 6′8″ (though not fully stable at his maximum height). Filled with sand, he will stand strong and take any beating you dish out. But if you fill him with water, he’ll continuously bob and weave, provoking you to move and employ better hand-eye coordination with striking.
Downsides: You may not be used to practicing on a figure with an un-uniform shape. If you are practicing kick boxing or savate, you may not be able to execute knee strikes or low kicks, but perhaps you may on the larger model that includes the shorts. BOB discolors very easily especially when subjected to heat. You may injure your hand if you punch him in the face without gloves, due to his strong/hard facial structure.
In simple: Nothing simulates hitting a person better than BOB. His unique design allows for uppercuts, jabs, and hooks like nothing else.
For an added bonus, you can accessorize your BOB up any way you want to help you release any bottled emotions or aggression.... Fight against evil hoodlums by dressing BOB up with a hoodie and a bandana... Don't like Britney Spears? Throw on pink tube top! Got problems with Eminem? Give BOB a nice diamond stud and paint in some angry yellow eyebrows.
