Everylast Heavy Bag Stand
The Everlast heavy bag stand provides a simple solution for hanging a punching bag up to 100 pounds but there are a few quirks not everyone will appreciate.
- Very simple setup.
- The frame is well-built with a decent powder coating.
- The price is reasonable.
- The main bag holding clip is strong.
- Plastic feet protectors keep your floors a little bit safer.
- The included speed bag clip is cheap plastic.
- The actual speed bag won’t last long.
- It’s a bulky platform that takes up a lot of space.
- You need to add weight plates to avoid bouncing and sliding.
The Everlast Heavy Bag Stand is a simple piece of gym equipment for mounting your boxing bag with ease. We currently use this piece of equipment with an 80 pound bag in our gym and it gets the job done with little fuss.
After 5 months of heavy use, we stand behind the product’s build factor, at least in terms of the frame. The frame itself has a large footprint with a length of 69-inches, a width of 48.25-inches, and a height of 84.13-inches. Admittedly, in our garage gym that takes up quite a bit of space.
The main clip is well built, screwing into the top of the equipment with ease. It took about 30 minutes to put the Everlast Heavy Bag Stand together with no help and screwing in the clip was a simple process and we’re confident it will stand up for years to come.
With that being said, the speed bag attachment is not great. First, the clip is made of steel but is attached to a piece of plastic which doesn’t instill a lot of confidence for longevity. Second, the actual speed bag that ships with the product is lousy and prone to burst within a short time period according to various reviews. Ours hasn’t burst yet but it does require what seems like a lot of air refills.
If you notice a lot of bounce in the frame, there are three weight plate pegs that can help stop the bounce and any equipment shifting. We don’t hit overly hard and found that a 35-pound weight on all three legs sufficed. Without any weight added the equipment is admittedly loud and shifts too much during harder punches and kicks.
While adding weight is a good way to stabilize the equipment, it does lead to a different issue. Weights being added takes up a little bit of room in front of the bag which makes wider movements more restricted.
The powder-coated steel tubing is surprisingly durable and the footpads are a nice touch that keeps the frames steel off our recently renovated garage floor.
