"Absolutely the best speed-bag platform I have ever used. Since training with Freddie Roach and using the First Rate Boxing speed-bag platform, there's no way I could go back to using other traditional platforms. This is such a solid piece of equipment and easy to adjust. There is no need for someone to pull down the wood or put sand bags on top to keep it from vibrating, which slows down your workout. Take my word for it, and don't waste your time. Get a First Rate Boxing platform. The best money can buy!" - Amir Khan
History of First Rate:
First Rate Boxing is a company that designs and manufactures the best speed bag platform in the business.
They pride themselves on the superior design, quality and craftsmanship that go into the speed bag platforms. First Rate Boxing started as an idea in 2002, when the founder, Jeff Crawford was still fighting professionally and was fortunate enough to be boxing under the tutelage of the famous trainer Freddie Roach.
While spending most of the time in Freddie's world-renowned Wild Card gym, he noticed that the speed bag platforms could not stand up to the pounding of his daily training regimen.
When the consistency of having them repaired or replaced became too much, Jeff took it upon himself to solve the problem and manufactured a prototype that would. Freddie liked it so much they became partners and First Rate Boxing was born. As the research and development continued they refined the prototype to be the most hassle free, premium speed bag platform ever built.
The platform holds a design patent and comes with a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects. If you are looking for quality, durability and value consider First Rate Boxing speed bag platforms.
