Title Boxing has been producing boxing and MMA training equipment for almost 2 decades, they have one of the easiest to navigate online stores along with a retail store in Kansas. They have become one of the better known brands in combat sports and you can almost bet on seeing ‘Title Boxing’ on at least one bag in every gym you walk into. I was in the market for a good quality Muay Thai bag to use at home, after looking at several brands and options, I went with Title Boxing’s Leather Thai Heavy Bag.
Full Title Boxing Leather Thai Heavy Bag Review
I ordered this Title Boxing Leather Thai Heavy Bag through Title Boxing, checkout was a snap, and if you are a first time customer you can sign up for the mailing list and receive a discount on your purchase. Chains and swivel are included, and the shipping rate from Title for a filled heavy bag (in the Continental US) is a great price at $39. You can buy the unfilled bag, but you’ll miss out on a 2” poly rubber interior liner if you order one and fill it yourself.
The package arrived in 3-4 business days from several states away in 2-layer packaging that kept the leather bag in great shape during the shipping process. Upon taking the bag out of the packaging, you see the difference between a professional quality bag and your run-of-the-mill training bag from the local sporting goods store. From the thick, triple-stitched patches for the hanging rings, to the metal ring reinforced laces that attach the top; this bag lets you know it is ready for punishment. There is a D-ring attached to the bottom of the bag for securing it to the floor as well.
After hanging the bag and putting a few founds in, I noticed the filling was tight and uniform from top to bottom, the same consistency from punching high to kicking low, the 2” poly rubber liner ensures that you get a consistent hitting surface from all angles and heights on the bag, and even after several months of use, there is still no settling or inconsistencies in the shape of this bag; the Title Leather Thai Bag measures right at 14” by 72-73” tall.
The bag feels light for 100 pounds, probably due to even weight distribution. The Title Leather Thai Heavy Bag is forgiving enough for use with bag gloves and still dense enough to give your shins a good tingle when really working your kicks. It takes elbows and knees well, just use cautious of your elbows on the sewn on Title Boxing patch. I have not been cut from this, but it does protrude out and it’s thick vinyl with kind of a sharp edge.
There really isn’t a break in period for this bag, the way it hits on day one is the same as day 100 from my experience, and that is not a bad thing. The interior liner and filling are top notch, with a lot of other punching bags you feel a need to modify the filling after a few uses, or you wonder who put a brick in it right where your shin lands. Not the Title Leather Thai bag. This thing is a brute, Title does not cut any corners in making these bags, and after a month I realized that purchasing a professional high quality bag was definitely worth the research and cost.
Title has been known to offer these at a lower price or throw a good sale up every now and then, so if you’re not in a hurry you may be able to get a lower price on this bag, but I can tell you it is worth the retail price of $299.99. If you are outfitting your gym or just putting a bag in your garage, this is a great bag for all users and it could be a solid upgrade to your training gear collection.
Pros & Cons
I have been using this bag regularly for 6-7 months and I can absolutely say if you train regularly in striking, you owe it to yourself to get a good quality training bag. Title Boxing’s Leather Thai Heavy Bag has worked great for all types of strikes, the leather looks great, the craftsmanship is top notch, the graphics and patches are in good shape, and with regular striking training I don’t know if this bag will ever wear out.
- Proven brand
- Durable material
