Fantastic piece of kit, reasonably priced, hard wearing and durable.
I feel this is a bit of a mixed bag (pun intended). On the one hand, it's the right size, not too bulky and has just enough \"give\" to not hurt your own hands or feet when using it (particularly good beginners who aren't confident yet), but against moderate-to-hard kicks it won't quite absorb the energy for the bag holder. I also feel the handles aren't places particularly well, although there are several of them. To sum up, good for beginners to intermediates, sturdy but slightly soft, annoying handles.
Nice size and weight, good quality and medium hardness. Just right for a mixed class of adults and children. Grips on the side are v.good. Only minor point is the rear grips could be shorter and stronger but well pleased for the price.
I've been using this pad several times a week for a year now and it's showing no damage at all. At first it was a bit thick for children and beginners but the padding has softened up nicely over time. This is the pad all my students run for given the choice.
I first purchased 10 of these shields 1 year ago, They are great for absorbing hard hits and are big enough to give protection especially when teaching beginners. We are an MMA school and as such these shields take a severe pounding 10 times a week every week! After around 7/8 months of punishment the faces of the shields start to rip and a few of the straps have become attached. Fortunately there are multiple handles so this is not a major issue and as for the torn faces I have now taken to taping the shields up with black gaffer tape. The best way to do this is to go all the way round the shield several times. Overall a great shield for the cash and about the best I have found on the market. This will last an average home user a lifetime and for schools, get the gaffer tape out an keep taping for long lifespan! I will deffo continue to buy more! Only given 4 stars due to the ripping and handles but don't let this put you off! Cheers Blitz!
The first thing you notice is that this thing is very big.
The second thing you notice is that it's very light, this is because it uses soft low density foam instead of the harder high density foam normally used in kick shields.
Because of the soft foam, hitting it is like hitting a sponge.
A far as I know low density foam does not last as long as high density, also a low density foam shield needs to be thicker to absorb the same amount of force as a higher density foam, this means that it's impressive thickness of 7 inches would in fact adsorb no better than a thinner higher density foam shield. On the plus side, it's softness means your less likely to injure yourself hitting it.
I have not tested it thoroughly but it seems to be able to take quite powerful blows
and it also looks very cool, which is nice.
Overall I like this product and consider it a good choice.
Was a little concerned that the bag was a tad light, but after three weeks of punishment its been great and has stood up well if not better than some heavier bags used in our kickboxing class.
I've been using at virtually every class I teach for 3 months now and it takes any punch, strike or kick thrown at it. I now have students and fellow instructors actually competing to see if they can cause me some sort of grimace attacking this whilst I am holding it, but so far nothing (although I have yet to invite MY sensei - a 5th dan - to give me his best.....waaaay too scary!).
