Here is a picture of the latest generation of StrikeMeter®! StrikeMeter® comes ready to use -- there are no complicated installation instructions and no assembly required.
Here is a picture of StrikeMeter® attached to the base of the standard size Century brand (Powerline®) Wavemaster®. Simply turn on the power switch, wait for the display to read Go -- and you are ready to strike the bag (the striking area is the bag top directly above the area where StrikeMeter® is located).
"Go" means you are ready to strike the bag and receive your score from 0 to 5000. As a reference, a score of ~ 400 is the impact required to break a standard sized pine board. A score of ~ 700 equals two boards, and a score of ~ 1000 equals three boards.
StrikeMeter® attaches to the base of a free-standing bag, such as this Wavemaster®, with Velcro® strips. To attach StrikeMeter®, peel off the protective tape from the Velcro® strips and stick StrikeMeter® to the flat part of the base. Press firmly.
To remove StrikeMeter®, carefully peel the unit off the base (you may need to use your fingers to press the base-affixed part of the Velcro® pair against the base while peeling away StrikeMeter® the first time. Once removed, press the Velcro® portion that stays attached to the base firmly - to ensure that the strips are sufficiently attached to the plastic base.). Attaching and re-attaching StrikeMeter® to the base is quick and easy!
