Here's a montage of some bag work I did recently.
Have you ever thought to try using a Wave Bag. Sits on the floor via a water filled base. I like them versus a hangi g bag because they move and react more like an opponent. I have never hit someone and had them move, or swing, from the head. Plus, with the base, you're not allowed to get as close to it as with a hanging bag. Much like their own legs and feet would be an obstacle. They also have a tendency to move about the floor as you strike them. So they are not always right where you want them. As in a real opponent.
Yeah I've used them. I find they're nowhere near as heavy, making them less effective for power training. I get what you're saying though, I just prefer sparring against a person to simulated sparring against an otherwise inanimate object.
I like to use both and different skill sets are required
These posts are from 2014, but ideally your heavy bag should be tied from top and bottom. To avoid pendulum swings and reaction force.
