DIY sparbar in action!

This is the sparbar I made myself as explained in my post on How to make your own sparbar.

It’s the ScepticalBoxer DIY sparbar MkII with a tennis ball attached to the end of the bar for additional head protection. This was necessitated after ScepticalBoxer DIY sparbar MkI opened up a small cut over my left.

I actually had a video of that embarrassing incident, but it spontaneously vanished from my video editor. Weird.

Anyway, let me know what you think of this DIY sparbar (not my technique) in the comments!

The spar bar seems good enough, although your link on how to make one is a long long read. It works so that’s the main thing! I gotta say though as much as you don’t want to know what I think about your technique, you need practice! To hit a nail right you’ve gotta swing the hammer right if you catch my drift. Other boxing review channels sometimes show them on the bags and stuff and I get they are no pros but they are quite good. But maybe you should just stick to typing dude! Or making stuff with pick axe handles.


Hahaha… very true. My only excuse is that I was going easy/casual for the purposes of testing/demonstrating the device’s functionality.

You don’t have to make excuses, if we were all that then we’d all be in the paid ranks. Just admit you ain’t that good, no shame there.


I ain’t that good – or good at all! I thought I was admitting that, hahaha.

As I say elsewhere, in boxing terms I’m an elderly novice, so you should treat what I say with as much scepticism as I treat everything.

You’ll get better with practice, that’s the nature of practice.
But if you want us to treat what you say with that much scepticism then why are you even doing this? You’re asking us to read what you’re saying but not to take it in, kind of? OK!


I enjoy boxing and I enjoy writing. I haven’t asked anyone to read anything. If someone finds something I’ve written interesting/useful/enjoyable, great! If not, not.
