the icheap nflatable ones burst.....i would want a filled bag (rags is usual).........as i said i can get a bag for £13 filled......it's just i might have to take filling out to put a pole and support insidr to stop it sagging on the pole...........perhaps some one in Worcestershire just has a free stanging one they want to selland deliver
Are you talking about hanging a bag from a freestanding stand, or supporting a bag from some sort of freestanding pole / support?
If all you want is something you can slug and hit hard, I think there are some wall mounted padded type affairs you could probably punch the shit outta.
Not really sure what you really want to do / are looking for?
I get that in a flat, options are very limited - both in terms of mounting / supporting something, plus the noise / vibration that gets transferred.
From what you've said, I'd look to get a freestanding stand, that's held in place either by weights / plates, or something you can fill - and hope it keeps it steady enough. With something kinda rubberised / absorbing underneath it to try and not be too much of a noise and vibration nuisance. Then hang a heavy bag rather traditionally from it.
The freestanding stands don't seem to be terribly cheap, and it would also have the overhead in terms of cost, of something as ballast to keep the base in position - but probably the best option. If you can fashion something yourself, you may be able to keep costs down - didn't you used to work with metal, or am I thinking of somebody else?
Cheapest solutions tend to be wall-mounted brackets and a normal heavy bag - or if you're very lucky, something robust, yet with sufficient give, you can mount on a ceiling (ie exposed beams that are pretty solid). Problem is, cheap wall mounts tend not to project very far, so either the bag can't move much, or you can't move around it much, or both. And conducive ceiling situations probably pretty rare.
Does your flat have a balcony?
