Boxing Reflex Bags
What is a reflex bag in boxing?
Reflex bags, also called cobra bags, are used much in the same way double end bags are. They are usually leather bags with an inflatable air sac attached to a weighted floor mount via a spring or other bendable rod. Cobra bags are great for accuracy and timing training, but they also have a steep learning curve. New users to the cobra bag often have difficulty finding combination rhythms and refining the accuracy of their punch. Accuracy, in particular, is important for a boxer to be able to predict the "rebound" of the bag so that they can plan their next punch. This also mimics how a fighter must be thinking punches ahead in a fight. One huge advantage the cobra bag offers is the ability to be moved, unlike traditional double end bags do not.
