I am 5' 8" weigh 153 fight at 135. Was wondering what type of bag I should get, just a traditional heavy bag or a watercore bag like the hydrocore. I also have been looking at the Teddy Atlas Uppercut bag. Just need to know good options for a first bag that is under 200, and what weight of bag I should get. Bag will be used for punches and kicks
I would get a thai bag if your going to use it for punches and kicks. Check out www.cagecombatsports.com they have some really good deals on their stuff.
I would stay away from the watercore bags, I have heard that the bladder inside tends to start to leack after some abuse. Just go with the traditional thai bag.
Thai bags are great if you're throwing punches and kicks, especially if you can anchor that thai bag to the ground. I have a teardrop bag in my garage, I love it. It's great for higher kicks, and punches.

You are looking for a Thai bag if you are looking for a bag that you can punch and kick. Thai bags are 72" long and you are able to pratice every kind of kick on it whether its a head kick or a leg kick. Here is a store that has some for a good price, www.cagecombatsports.com
i know some kickboxing clubs that prefer hanging 4ft punching bags as they don't want their fighters to get lazy. so that's something to think about when picking a bag cause if you get better at throwing high kicks your low kicks automatically improve.
we are developing some cool bags for one local club here they are pretty much 6ft angle bags, so you can throw low kicks and still have a ridge to play with your uppercuts etc. but those are a few months away
