I just looked up the Cobra Reflex Punching Bag and currently there are a lot of stores out of stock, like this listing at Amazon.
I’m wondering if a bunch of people got the same idea as I did after seeing Ryan Garcia using one on his Instagram:
After I saw this video I wanted one. I don’t have tons of space at home, and also no one to train with, so you have to be creative.
I’ll be checking on this from time to time and will list it here if I find somewhere that has it in stock.
It looks like the price goes from around $150-$250 for these. Ringside lists it at $199 on their website, and I saw it on a site called Bound Boxing for $149.
Good For Speed?
Another thing I noticed is Virgil Ortiz commented that he loves the Cobra (that’s actually how I figured out what it is, as a lot of people asked Ryan in the comments), and so, looking at these two, they are both pretty quick, so maybe this is a tool that helps them with that. (Granted it could also just be good genetics).
Both are strong up and coming fighters, with Golden Boy Promotions. De La Hoya was giving them nice praise as he was listing a few notable fighters to watch out for ahead of the big Alvarez and Chavez Jr. fight.
Here’s a video of Vergil Ortiz. He’s got some quick hands, and this is a first round knockout, like most of his fights have been, besides his last one in the Alvarez Chavez Jr. undercard:
