Anyone have any experience with this platform? Looks pretty sturdy, and accomodates 16 and 24 inch spacing.


Thanks in advance for your thoughts.Yes I have used it. Scroll down this page and you'll see me in front of it when I visited the factory where they are made in Noel Missouri. I like it OK, however it adjusted by chains going down inside the tubes and rattled a lot when you punched. I think they have now adapted that to use a cable. Call them and talk to them. They are great folks and can probably modify a unit for however you need. Randy is his name.__________________

Thanks for the feedback, Alan. Perhaps the 200 series non-adjustable platform might be a better buy for me since I'm the only one who uses it. Thanks again.  #6   06-25-2010, 09:12 AMparanday Speed Bag Guru Join Date: Sep 2009Location: Wisconsin, USAPosts: 2,142Quote:Originally Posted by Bruce Thanks for the feedback, Alan.

Maybe change to a swivel with a different rebound arc/bag height? 

Adjustable platforms sure are nice.  #7   06-25-2010, 09:22 PMBruce Member Join Date: Dec 2009Location: Central, PAPosts: 75Quote:Originally Posted by paranday Will you be wanting to use different size bags? Maybe change to a swivel with a different rebound arc/bag height?

I was thinking that I wasn't getting any taller... *chuckle*Also you never know when a family member, friend, or other acquaintance may want to give it a try. I would not ever buy another non-adjustable platform for those reasons.  #9   06-26-2010, 10:51 PMSpeedbag Author of the Speed Bag Bible, founder of speedbagcentral.com

Thanks for the feedback, Alan. Perhaps the 200 series non-adjustable platform might be a better buy for me since I'm the only one who uses it. Thanks again.I would respectfully disagree. I suggest a board with at least some adjustment built in, for different bag sizes or baggin' buddies joining you later.__________________
