Just browsing Title Boxingís website when I somehow came across this. It didnít look like much at first, but then I saw the video. I need get one! If you look at the picture, the video is the third or fourth one when you click on the arrows. I looked for a direct link to the video, but didnít find one.

https://www.titleboxing.com/title-rapid-reflex-boxing-bar-tri-bag

Better yet, Iím thinking about making one myself. Some PVC pipe, a bearing of some sort, attach it to a simple base and put a weight plate on it. And somehow add weight to the spinning pole. Maybe metal pipe there? The wheels are spinning. Iím going to go to Home Depot and get ideas for materials and prices. I donít need to rig up a bag at the top, but it would be a nice touch if I could somehow. And/or a pad/bag where the torso would be.

I guess itís this eraís Chinese wooden dummy in a sense.

Surely looks like the training equipment to have!! Yeah, just might get some for the dojo and at home. Although, the price can cause one to take a pause before reaching for the credit card.

$300 is pretty steep for me. That's why I'm figuring out how to make one myself. Doesn't seem to be too difficult, but you know how that goes.

If I was a dojo owner, it might be easier to justify.

I've seen this type of thing before. There's one called the Sparbar which has wall versions too but also very pricey: https://www.sparbar.co.uk/

I'm not that handy but if you are, would have thought it simple enough to use a PVC pole?

I saw that one after looking into the Title one.

It seems quite easy to do one out of PVC. Only 2 issues:
1. Iíd need some sort of bearing to allow the arm to spin smoothly and freely. Think fidget spinner vs two pieces of PVC pipe rubbing against each other.

2. PVC pipe might be a bit too light for the arm. Not enough mass means not enough momentum. Maybe not though.

Going to try to rig something up. I just need some time.

Have you used one before?

I've seen something like that before, too, and I like it. Looks very useful, and keeps you on your toes.

It seems like it keeps you attacking and defending simultaneously. Every punch will lead to a punch coming back at you. A heavy bag doesnít do that.

Iíve been trying to draw up plans to make one, but Iím getting stuck at the bearing issue. After the bearing, Iíd just need some PVC pipe, an L or T connector, and a floor coupling. All are readily available and cheap at Home Depot. Iíve got it pretty much figured out. Except the bearing.

My father owns an auto repair shop. Heís keeping an eye out for something thatíll fit right. Heís got stuff like that all over the place, but itís just a matter of coming across the right size and type.

Yes, you are right. It takes bag training and makes it more interactive. Being able to alternate rounds between that, a heavy bag, and a speed bag would make for great workout variety.
