Speed ball on a stand? Do you mean a double ended bag?




What a stud

isnt that what double edged bags do???

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

haha yeah

I'm assuming by "speed ball" you mean "speed bag". The only thing I know of called a "speed ball" is when someone mixes cocaine and heroin. Can't say I've seen that in a sports supply shop. Speed bag that hits back and is on a stand (while not a great description) brings to mind these two:

Just a regular speedbag

Some goofy piece of crap that will certainly annoy the hell out of your co-workers.


Thanks to NikosCC for the sick sig!

Yes, that's a double ended bag(what I posted). Here's a video:
