Unlike many other double end bags, Cleto Reyes is made of genuine leather. As you may know that genuine leather is the sturdiest material for cover material and it won’t have rough spots any time soon. Why is this important? Even though you will use boxing gloves or hand wraps to punch it, these rough spots can change the rebound rate and balance. You won’t have these problems with Cleto Reyes any time soon.

When you get used to punching the bag, you can get a smaller one and train with it for more challenging workout and Cleto Reyes will be still in a good shape. So you can always go back and train with it. This will provide more variation and you can increase your hand eye coordination and punching skills more effectively.

Thanks to its optimal rebound rate, you can practice defense pretty well with it. And as you know that it won’t have rough spots easily. So when you get hit by the bag, it won’t cause any cuts. It can be really annoying to get hit by a bag and it can be even more annoying to have cuts after that.

It is also light and obviously it is faster than other double end bags and it is fair to say that it will challenge you more than other bags. So get ready for sweaty sessions 😉

It comes with two rubber cables and s hooks so you will have everything for installation (except double end bag anchor). With that you will also have extra bladder so when the old bladder is useless and leaking you can replace it with extra bladder quite easily. I know that bladders are really cheap however you don’t have to find the right size and order it again.

Installation: Many verified purchases say that after they open the box they installed the bag under five minutes. Honestly it is really easy to do 😉

Price: Its price is higher than many other double end bags. The most important reason for that is that Cleto Reyes is made of genuine leather. However keep in mind that it will cost only initially more. This double end bag can last 4 times more than many “average” bags and let’s not forget that it also has optimal recoil rate. Check out the latest price on amazon.


Cleto Reyes Double End Bag (Mexican Style) Product Overview

Training Quality: 9.8 / 10.0Cleto Reyes Double End Bag (Mexican Style) Review

Durability: 9.8 / 10.0

Quality / Price Rating: 8.8 / 10.0

Dimensions: 22″ x 7″

Exclusive Features

  • Optimal recoil rate
  • Made of genuine leather
  • Durable
  • Most quality Mexican style bag on the market
  • Comes with two rubber cables and s hooks for complete  installation (except double end bag anchor)
  • Spare bladder

If you like Mexican Style Double End Bags, which are shaped “8”, then you honestly don’t have many options let alone quality options. However Cleto Reyes Mexican Style provides top notch quality.

It is really a good place to practice body and head punches. You can even do uppercuts against resistance. Sure you do have this opportunity during sparring however your opponent also has that, so it won’t be comfortable to practice it there 😉 Other than focus mitt training you simply don’t have this opportunity. And if you do boxing or any other martial arts, which include striking, practicing striking techniques against resistance is truly priceless.

Alright this bag gives “natural” rebound rate and I generally don’t exaggerate it. After all it is a bag it should give it. However MANY other Mexican Style bags can’t pull it off and can give very odd rebound rate. Sometimes the bag stops swinging for a millisecond and then accelerates etc. I think you know what I am talking about. Anyway in short this bag manages to give “smooth” rebound rate.

It is sturdy and this double end bag also comes with two rubber cables and s hooks for complete installation.

You will also get one spare bladder with shipment.

Price: Considering that it has very large surface area and it is made of genuine leather you can expect that its price is a little bit higher than its rivals and you are right. However you should definitely keep in mind that the rivals of Cleto Reyes generally use synthetic leather and their Mexican Style Bags’ rebound rate quality do not match with Cleto Reyes. Also this bag comes with many “extras”. Check out the latest price on amazon.


Which Double End Bag I would buy?

Cleto Reyes has truly two great products and I experienced many Cleto Reyes products including headgear, boxing gloves… And I can easily say that I always had very good experiences.

These two double end bags get great reviews and feedback from various boxing and martial arts forums as well.

It is fair to say that you can and you should go with Cleto Reyes bags. However which one question is totally up to you. If you like and want to try Mexican Style go for Mexican and if you like regular then go for regular. I am sure that you will have very good experiences with any of them.
