1. Balazs Universal Boxing Stand

Balazs Universal Boxing Stand - Heavy Bag Stand

ExpertFighter rating: [usr 5]

If you own anything made by Balazs, you know that their gear makes no compromises. Their Universal Boxing Stand is no different. So far, we couldn’t find a product that stands up to it (heh). Unfortunately, the price is a turn-off. We’ve seen cars that cost as much, but on the other hand, this stand looks like it could probably lift a car. The whole construction is very stable, while requiring no additional support. If the height of most stands doesn’t fit you, this is a great choice – custom heights are available upon request.

  • Designed and made in the USA
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Fits up to a 6′ long heavy bag, handles up to 300lbs of weight
  • Requires no extra support
  • Height customizable (upon request)


2. Outslayer 2-Station Muay Thai Stand

Outslayer Muay Thai Heavy Bag Double Stand 10 Year Warranty

ExpertFighter rating: [usr 5]

Our best choice for MMA, Muay Thai, or kickboxing – but it also works perfectly with a regular 100lb boxing bag. Like all Outslayer products, it comes with a 10 year warranty – although you probably won’t need it. It’s very solid and durable compared to other boxing stands, and has an impressive weight capacity of 500lbs. The height is adjustable to ensure a good fit for most fighters. There is about 3 feet of distance between the pole and the heavy bag, allowing more room for movement during workouts. It comes with a speed bag platform already installed.

  • Designed and made in the USA
  • 10 year warranty
  • Supports up 500lbs of weight
  • Height customizable up to 7’5 feet
  • 4 empty sand bags included for support


3. Everlast 2-Station Heavy Bag Stand

Outslayer Muay Thai Heavy Bag Double Stand 10 Year Warranty

ExpertFighter rating: [usr 4.5]

Our best value pick. An excellent choice if you don’t want to spend a fortune on boxing equipment, but still need something reliable. It matched all our quality requirements while being cheaper than many alternatives. While we found it’s construction to be very sturdy and resilient, it doesn’t have the same stability as some high-end stands and requires additional support. To compensate for this, it comes with 3 weight pegs which can be used to add weight plates or sandbags for more stability. It can handle any heavy bag up to 100lbs of weight and comes with an adjustable speed bag platform.

  • Speed bag platform included
  • Speed bag platform height fully customizable
  • Supports heavy bags up to 100lbs
  • Features 3 weight pegs for stability


4. Century Gray Heavy Bag Stand

Century Heavy Bag Stand, Gray

ExpertFighter rating: [usr 4]

For a steel construction, this heavy bag stand is surprisingly light – it only weighs 48lbs. Regardless, it has a capacity of up to 100lbs, and is around 7 feet tall, making it a good fit for most fighters. It’s a basic option, having only the bare essentials – but we believe the price doesn’t suggest otherwise anyway.

The whole construction is sturdy and reliable. Like most cheaper stands, putting weight on the base is necessary if you plan to throw hard punches.

  • Supports up to 100lbs
  • Light and easy to move around
  • 3 weight pegs for extra stability


5. Everlast Heavy Bag Stand

Everlast Heavy Bag Stand

ExpertFighter rating: [usr 3.7]

A great choice if you’re on a budget, but still want something reliable. It doesn’t have the insane stability of some high-end stands, and it doesn’t offer any special features. Still, it gets the job done, at an affordable cost. We found it to be sturdy and stable, provided that weight is added to the base.

The perfect punching bag stand for a home setting or a backyard, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned fighter.

  • Great price-to-quality ratio
  • Around 7” tall
  • Supports up to 100lbs
  • 2 weight pegs for extra stability
