@ECHO7AIRSOFT You should start on a lower weight if only 100 lbs but since you’ve bought that one I advise getting wrist/ankle braces so you don’t end up injuring yourself, I weigh approximately 160 lbs and I’m on a 75 lbs heavy bag that does just fine for myself, half you’re weight is only a guideline, as long as you strike properly you’ll be fine.
