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
