Century Heavy Bag Stand Review – The Complete Guide

Century is one of the top boxing equipment producing companies and has produced my favorite free standing punching bag which is Century Bob XL. The company also gives decent warranties and some of these stands have very good quality and amazing features.

Let’s start Century heavy bag stand review with the best one…

Century Cornerman Overview

There are some stands which stay still like a rock after you strike as hard as you can. If you trained a stand like this, it might be this one 😉 It has 16 gauge steel and quality design, thanks to these features it gives amazing stability. Also, shock absorbing technology helps with decreasing vibration and increasing durability. These features also make this stand very quiet.

Century gives 1-year warranty, however, I know that you will use this stand for your lifetime. Many boxing gyms give amazing feedback for its durability. Also, it has adjustable legs and its adjustment setting is 7.5 feet. So you can adjust accordingly. Cornerman is shortly perfect for every corner. And let’s not forget that it is also quiet. In this way, this stand becomes perfect for everywhere including home.

Also if you have a tall bag (taller than 52″), some stands have “shaking issues” however this one will stay still.

It is truly one of the most quality products on the market and only couple of stands match its quality and it also made my most quality stand list a long time ago…

It also gives complete freedom for your footwork. 

This stand is also known for giving quality striking experience for all bag types including boxing, banana, Muay Thai, MMA etc. Keep in mind that these bags’ filler material, density, construction, material type, length and design are different. For example, after striking a tall bag lots of stands can vibrate but Cornerman will stay still. Thanks to this feature it also becomes an excellent choice for more than one training type.

Verdict and Price: If you are looking a very quality stand to use for a very long time (5+ years), then you are going to really like Century Cornerman and it is the most quality Century Stand.

Century Heavy Bag Stand Overview


Century Heavy Bag Stand Review

 Exclusive Features
  • Can do the job at least for 3 years
  • Made of quality steel
  • Includes weight pegs for stability
  • Amazing performance for the money
  • Very affordable and has quality
  • Very easy to set up

Warranty: 1 Year

Height: 6’9″

Capacity: 100 Lbs.

Durability Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

Training Quality Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

Century’s this stand is much more affordable than the first one and it has weight pegs for extra stability. The steel construction will hold the punching bag just fine for a couple of years and this one also has one year warranty. Actually, it can be a great option for people, who are on a budget, because it will do the job, hold the punching bag, give optimal swing rate and it has an incredible price. It can be usable in boxing gyms for 3 years without any issues and keep in mind that it is the case when it is used in boxing gyms. If you use it in your home or regular gym then you can surely use it more than 3 years.

Thanks to its tubular steel construction, its durability and stability always get better reviews than ”other classic stands”. Considering other stands, which are made of cheap and not durable materials, Century Heavy Bag Stand offers much more stability, durability and has a longer warranty.

It also uses heavy duty steel which is a very quality materials and it is a huge plus especially in this price range.

Let’s continue with the worst one…

Century Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Platform Overview


Century Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Platform Overview

Pros
  • Can do the job at least for 3 years
  • Made of quality steel
  • Includes weight pegs for stability
  • Very good price for complete set
  • Very easy to set up

Cons

  • Swivel does not give freedom for speed bags

Warranty: 1 Year

Height: 6’9″

Capacity: 100 Lbs.

Durability Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

Training Quality Rating (Stand): 8.5 / 10.0

Training Quality Rating (Speed bag Platform): 6.0 / 10.0

I normally love complete sets if these have quality. Because these tend to be cheaper and satisfy all your needs. This complete set has a very good price, however, there are some issues with this set…

The stand is solid like a rock. It has sturdy steel construction and will give you same punching experience and swing rate for years.

But speed bag platform is a total joke. Its swivel is made of not quality material and it has also some performance issues. For example, sometimes speed bag gets stuck and doesn’t move.

Swivel also doesn’t give much freedom for speed bag. You can only hit back and forward. So this is an obvious problem for people who want to improve their speed bag punching skills. Even though you get a new and quality swivel, its speed bag platform is not made of quality material like oak. So it does not have decent durability and I highly recommend you to stay away from this platform.

I am sure you will be EXTREMELY pleased with two choices above instead of Century Complete Set.

 

Final Thoughts


Century Cornerman is made of very high-quality steel, stays still like a rock and has a decent warranty from a trustworthy company. I also have very good experiences with their products and services. It has also adjustable legs and can be set in any corner. It is simply a perfect choice for everywhere. And it just does not vibrate. This will help you to get smooth punching, striking experience. Also, it always gets very good ratings from gyms and buyers as well. If these features are appealing to you, have a look at the price of Cornerman on Amazon. It also comes with one year warranty. It is a bit pricey but seriously you get what you pay for and it suits basically anywhere.

Brand Overview (Stands only): Alright I have been doing boxing and MMA training a long time and I trained with 5 model Century Stand in 4 different countries. The brand is popular, I give you that and according to my experiences and research, if you live in US, UK or Canada then you also have great customer service as well. The company produces the stands with 3-4 designs and don’t mess with it. If something is not broke, don’t fix it, right? In my opinion, you can go with any Century stand (except the one with a speed bag platform) and I am sure that you will be pleased with your selection.

  1. This is a good comparison and review of the stands. I am leaning towards the heavy bag and speed bag platform because it gives me the two platforms, but with your suggestion, I am having second thoughts. Are there any other brands that are comparable in prices and quality that will give me what I want?

    1. Actually Century Stand will be a better option. Even though its speed bag platform doesn’t have premium quality, it is still one of the best.
      You can also consider of getting a separate platform and some of them have both quality and life time warranty 😉 You can check out these platforms and their other amazing features.

  2. If I ever start boxing, this will be the first place I go. I never knew that a heavy bag platform would have so many features and can be very different from another platform even though they might look similar. All I have to say is that this site will be very useful for boxers out there. Thanks for the info!

    1. There are so many types of platforms some are good for corner and small spaces apartments etc. and some have even speed bag platforms. If you think of getting one for your place then Cornerman would be perfect and you are welcome anytime Benson 😉

  3. Furkan,
    I can see some advantages to these Century heavy bag stands. My cousin hung his bag from the rafters in the basement. We could only use it in one spot and was hard to move around. Having one of these stands would work easier and you could move it out of the way when not needed. Of these three, is one easier to move than the others?

    1. I also know that hanging a heavy bag to a rafter is really bad for moving it around. You basically can’t 🙂 But having one of these stands can make it easier for you. You can get this Century’s this stand. It is lighter and after you finished working out, get the punching bag and move the stand. It is lighter and it is also smaller and better for moving around.

  4. Great comparison. I have been looking at getting into this so perfect I happened across it. What kind of bag size is okay with these?

  5. I have thought about boxing with a bag for weight loss. I didn’t know how much room I would need. I had thought I could hang the bag from the ceiling in the garage? Is a stand a better idea? I like the idea of a stand, without having to deal with putting up a hook.

    1. Boxing is just great for weight loss and if your ceiling isn’t reinforced a heavy bag may not be suitable for it. I agree that a stand would be a better choice.

  6. The Cornerman looks great. I’ve been looking at adding a bag to the corner of my gym but all the stands a very bulky for corners.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Many gyms and people, who want to buy a bag for their homes, also have the same problem and get Cornerman so it will just fine for you.

  7. wow, never realized there was so much of this type of equipment for your home gyms, especially for boxing and kick boxing, my sister-in-law just started kick boxing and would love the corner stand for her heavy bag. I will be sure to turn on to your site, great site by the way

    1. There is even way more equipment of Century for this particular topic but I kept this writing short so people don’t get bored.

      Actually, as you said Century Cornerman will be perfect for hear as it is sturdier and can stay stable even after the heaviest kicks so it can be more suitable for your sister-in-law.

  8. There is so much information to consider when starting out with boxing. I love that I can rely on your site for accurate and honest information. I will definitely stay away from the Century Heavy back and Speed platform. It sounds like they did not put enough effort into the speed bag portion.

  9. This is such a helpful article, thank you. I’ve recently started kickboxing so looking for a bag that is steady but not too expensive, as I’m still a beginner. Do you have any recommendations?

    1. If you just started definitely be extra careful with your technique because hand and wrist injuries happen when people start training with a heavy bag. You can check out these punching bags for beginners. These have good price tags and these bags allow you to fill and empty the bag. This provides you to train with a bag which is suitable for your level.
