:mad: :mad: :mad: Is it actually possible to get one of these for cheap? as i might get one to practice my punches/ kicks at home.
Iv'e noticed the ones ive seen are a couple of hundred pound.
I wanted one that stands up, as i have no were to hang one up.

not only are they pricey; but they're fucking huge and need to be delivered, which costs more.
just get a bag, a wall bracket, and fill it with sand; better than a dummy and cheaper by miles

Well look at it like this, dude; the dummy may look the part, but apart from the fact it's highly expensive for what it is, it's too stationary; your opponent isn't gonna just stand there whilst you slug him in the face; the bag will swing around with the force you put into it, so you can work your angles and footwork and movement too.
Plus, the dummies tend to just be the upper half of a man, and as such don't leave much room to work leg kicks. But if you get a large bag, it'll stretch to near the floor and you can strike over the whole body
