Ive got a free standing punch bag, was a lot cheaper than a slam man at £100 and doesn't sound as gay either... I quite like mine!

I much prefer a proper hanging bag better for movement and developing power in my opinion. But of you can't have a hanging bag then a free standing will do. I think the slam man things are pump personally

They are not as good as taking that 230 quid and putting that towards a boxing club membership. With the Slam Man all you get is some plastic item that will certainly one evening get shot when you get up for that glass of water.

With a boxing club membership, you get to train with like minded folks, there will always be someone there to help, you will only want to push your self harder, and a boxing club is a great place for new opportunities.

I personally think that a good solid heavy bag is best, it enables you to develop power, strength and overall endurance. I believe you can get them at a more reasonable price too. And as Ivan says get a membership to a decent gym, and even better do some good quality sparring, cant beat it.

I've got an old Slam Man sat gathering dust and spiders in the garage. The base is full of set-like-concrete wet sand so would need something substantial to collect (near Gloucester) but happy to give for the price of a few beers.....
