Best Large Bag

For all the others, DGA, Lightning, Wammo, and others

I have the Competition bag ...... They will fit in the holders (so will a High Life qt) but you have to squeeze them in a bit. I think they will slide right into the holders on the Discarrier. I ordered mine online so I didn't have a chance to look at it in person. The ones everyone else had at the time were the Discarrier; I thought I didn't need that much disc space. The side pockets looked decent online but they are really small. It holds plenty of discs, but not enough room for gear, etc. I wish I would have ordered the Discarrier, but I make do with what the one I have.

I'll chime in on my GB Silverback. This bag has been perfect for ME as far as size, weight, and comfort is concerned. I can fit 15 discs in the main compartment and easily fit two Wizards in the putter pouch. I also think it is well designed and I like some of the features like velcro straps for an umbrella or stool, pencil/pen holders, the mesh on the pockets, which are great for sunflower seeds/snacks, & I like how the water bottle holders are attached to the bag itself, and not the side pockets.

I have not had one single problem with the frame yet. It doesn't come undone and does it's job well. With that being said, and my OCD added to the mix, I did use a hacksaw to cut off the extra threads so they are plush with the plastic end dividers, and not sticking into the side of the bag. I could see these wearing through the fabric with time, but now I have eliminated that. If you don't like the PVC frame, the accrodian style dividers from Innova fit perfectly. I'm not sure how the new velcro dividers would work, but I imagine they would fit as well.

What exactly do you mean by "cut off the extra threads"?

The threads on the connector are a little more than a 1/4 inch long and the corrugated plastic is only an 1/8inch thick, so you have extra threads that rub on your bag and could in theory rub through. However I would think removing the extra threads would make it easier for the threads to come out of the plastic more often. With the extra threads my hold bags frame came apart all the time.

I have a Phenix Streamline bag + quadshocks, I like it a lot. Very comfortable to carry, no rubbing or discomfort on the back at all, and that truck bed liner coating is excellent. Can easily hold 14 discs inside plus 1 or 2 putters outside, and still has space for windbreaker, extra towels, etc. Also I like the water resistant bag cover that unfolds from a zipper compartment.

But for most casual rounds I just carry 8-10 discs in my small Innova bag. The energy savings add up over a couple rounds.

Did you end up getting a new bag? If so what did you go with?

Haha, well, I have my bag "rigged" for now... I have decided to save up my money to buy a Revolution bag this coming season. It seems like for the money it is a superior build to anything else. Great internal frame, truck vinyl bottom, and the best Denier of any bag I have seen yet: all for a price that competes with the others. Rust and Grey colored one for me :)

I hope there's enough room for my water mocs :)

I have found that if you don't treat your bag like sh*t...it lasts quite a while...I've had my current cheap innova bag for 3 years going on 4...I have a replacement (which I won hitting 16 out of 20 putts in a putting contest) stored away in the closet but haven't had to use it because my current bag just keeps on truckin...
I want to get a vending machine with fun sized candy bars...and the glass in front is a magnifying glass. You'll be mad, but it will be too late.
