Default Arcade punching bag

Hey there!

Recently, I just went to a arcade full of games, and even rode the 8-figure with carts. I went inside, and noticed a boxing punching bag. So out of the 3 I was with, I scored the highest punch! I realize that it records the power when the bag hits the censor up, so I directed all my strength and hit in the middle.

I was just wondering, what were your highest scores on it?

Sorry, I wish this could help you but it can't, different machines use their own form of measurement. I went punch for punch with my brothers when we went on vacation, and although we were close, the numbers were different depending on each machine, let alone each BRAND of game. There was 3 of one machine, where I'd average at 570's, 600's, and 650's, despite the fact they were all the same brand, then another machine that didn't even have numbers into the 500 range, which I averaged around 330's.

Then I tornado kicked one and found out it was right in front of the camera, so we left. Came back the next morning and it was crated up.

Only seen one on Chris Angel. Never seen one in person, let alone used one.

I went to some pizza place once with about 5 or 6 friends, and I got them all to try it out. All my friends hit it and got around 500, then another kid hit it and got low 600's. He was the strongest of all of us (meaning he had the most muscle). Then I went. Now, I'm skinny as fuck (anyone on here will vouch for me on that one). Hit in the high 800's (maybe around 890), just because I used technique.

I wanted to kick it like toxic did, but there was one of those claw machines next to it and there was no space.

I just wish I was more accurate. I clipped the bottom.

Ive never tried one of them, I always thought they were pretty inaccurate and a waste of money.

I'm very skeptical of those things. What exactly is being calculated? The force at which it hits the top of machine? Or the actual impact? Logic would say that a really hard rising hook would hit the hardest, but from what I've seen, that's not the case.

EDIT: In addition, what do those numbers even mean? Lbs of Force? No. So what exactly is it measuring?

Technically speaking, any mathematical terms can be used, the only question is whether or not it's in proportion. Really the scale means nothing unless there's something to relate to, so it's fun and probably accurate person to person, but it doesn't mean the numbers mean anything specific.
