This does the job nicely. The purpose of a floor to ceiling ball is speed and accuracy - if you want practice hiting hard get a heavy punch bag. I bought one of these years ago and I did a hatchet job of putting it up so that the wear and tear caused the rubber bands to eventually snap. My advice is to take your time and put it up properly, go to the hardware store and make sure you buy the right fittings, so the bands don't chaff. Also you will need a needle and bicycle pump to blow it up.
I love using this as its really is a lot closer to fighting than a punch bag. Before I just had a punch bag and was hitting it with power shots day after day... so I ended up over training and injuring myself. This mixes up the training nicely and prevents those nasty stiff shoulders you get from just hitting a punch bag.
I removed a star because there was no pump or even a needle for pumping up the ball.
