Features of boxing bags

Artificial materials – vinyl, PVC wear out faster, but at the same time look presentable, like leather. Economical and reliable bags made of awning and tarpaulin. Both of these materials are strong and thick fabrics with special impregnation.
The life and the correct stiffness of the projectile depend on the packing. A bag full of sand is too hard; handling it can cause injury to the hand. Rag stuffing is, on the contrary, too soft, but suitable for children. Apply mixed packing, combining rags with sand, tyrsu (plant material) with sand. The best option is a rubber crumb that does not fall off, does not rot and, therefore, lasts a long time.
