Normal boxing punching bag? Teardrop punching bag? Thai punching bag or the Angle punching bag?

I personally thinks that I should get the Angle punching bag since i only have room for only one bag at home. Do you guys think this is a good choice? Or what do you guys recoment?

best type of bag

I prefer a thai bag, Ringside, title boxing has some goodones.

Also make sure you have good bag gloves and hand wraps. Going on the bag alot will definalty make your hands sore as hell. Stay away from those wavemasters, they suck!!!

I recommend if you can only get one, a heavy/grappling bag of around 80-100lbs. Dead weight is crazy to roll with if you're not used to it compared to a person, and 80-100 is a decent amount for a heavy bag. Title, Everlast(mine), as well as (supposedly)UFC make good ones.

I've never used or heard of much use from those around me of a teardrop bag, so I wouldn't know. My only concern would be the oblong shape and whether or not it limited the bag's versatility...

Teardrop shaped bags are good for throwing knees. I can't think of any other uses that make them stand out.

Actually, the oblong shape makes it a dream for training body work. The standard cylinder shape doesn't lend itself well to the striking angle of a lot of body attacks. Knees, uppercuts to the body, shovel hooks, and kicks that are angled to come up under the elbow all benefit from teardrop (or body snatcher) bags.

If you want a good all-purpose bag, then pony up the money for a 6' 100lb+ thai style heavy bag (like this). Full range of motion from the legs to the head. Just make sure you have enough room to hang it up. Getting that thing moving will easily mess up drywall.
