free standing punch bags anyone used 1 any good?

as above i want 1 for my home and dont waht to use hanging bags since i want to hit a heavy bag and dopnt want the holes etc in the house and im renting it.
 
are the free standing bacgs any good? i want to be able to punch and kick without it falling over? or do they fall over? im looking at the 1s with the deeper base i assume will way more than the shallower base with wider girth.
 
can you hit them full of sand and not fall over???
 
 

i believe with a healthy active lifestyle and some good knowledge and aas/peps use etc that you can live a longer stronger better life.

    If you went mad at it and tired you can topple them but for training,movement general striking they can take it mate

    Everyone has been in shape,but not everyone is IN shape,its about where your going not where you have been.

    They'll still fall over mate no matter how heavy you base them, or at the very least move around which is a bloody pain.

    ok cheers,  im not going to go wild at it but id like to jus i a few good hits and it still stand, it says on some iv looked on ebay that with sand the weight 300lb and other say 220kg. i dont mind it falling over from a big kick but would like to think there were heavy enough to stay standing from punch combos.

    and another question, some have springs on the others dont, which would be best?

    i assume the spring 1 would absorb the hits better bit would make more movement in the bag, and the other would be more solid but could hit it harder as it has no movement but more likely to fall over???????

    my mate had one and he filled it with sand and it still fell over.
    once you have it on its edge the weight will assist its toppling over once its past the point of no return lol.

    then its the squat and push to put it back up (with gloves on)
