disc bag specifics?
« on: October 29, 2013, 08:41:38 am »
  So, what do you look for when you are searching to buy a new disc bag?  It seems to me that the market is becoming (dare I say) flooded with options, and I am just curious at what everybody likes/dislikes.

Nice try, grip marketing team!

I prefer a back back, something with secure pockets, slots for equipment and enough room to carry 12-15 discs. Hardy and easy to clean is 2nd in importance.

I soooo wish I could work Grip.  I'm one hell of a seamstress...

And the waterproof lining doesn't dry rot and get all flakey!

I am on my second Grip bag, and they have both been wonderful to me, I have enjoyed them.  However if your worried about the bottom....then....

Line-X for Kyle's bag may be more up your speed.

Love the Grip Bag though, been a trooper through and through.

My current bag, in use since July, is wearing out on the bottom.  4 months, 70 rounds is not long enough.

what type are you using, that does seem very short of a life span.

I think a bigger issue for Rob is not that his bag is wearing out, but that he only gets to play 17.5 rounds a month.
