The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
What features do you like best about your disc golf bag and why? Also have you made any modifications to you bag?
I'm not that big on having everything you can fit into a bag. I have a 2-3 year old Innova bag that holds about 22 disc. I took out the dividers and added back straps.
Key thing I will look into when I replace this bag. Big pouch and and big drink holder's. I might upgrade to gel straps also. other then that I don't need all the extra stuff.
I have 3 bags now. Lat.64 Pro bag that holds 22+, Fade crunch that holds 12, and Lat.64 Slim Jim that holds 8. After using each of these bags for some time I have decided the Fade Crunch is the best for comfortable weight while still having enough room for extras, including an extra water bottle. The Slim Jim is great for taking to my local short course and is extremely light weight. I still use the big Pro bag bag, but find that I don't use half of the discs and end up carrying all that extra weight for nothing. I use quad straps for the big bag only, the Fade crunch and Slim Jim are light enough with just a single shoulder strap. If I had to go with just one bag, it would be the Fade crunch or something similar. Carrying 12 discs is generally plenty for most courses. The only modification I made is adding a clip-on bag which is a zipper pouch with a carabiner that I carry inside the disc bag to safely hold my phone and other gear such as keys, lighter, etc. I have known several folks that lost their car keys or cell phone on the course and this internal zipper pouch prevents that from ever happening.
I have experimented with 2-wheel carts and 3-wheel carts to carry my big Pro bag and a small cooler, as well as speakers for the mp3 player, umbrella, trash bag, bug spray, snacks, etc. The carts are very nice on flat courses, but become a burden on heavily wooded or hilly courses.
I'm sticking with my medium size bag (Fade crunch) as my everyday bag. The Fade crunch is also a very good value.
I love my Fade Crunch Box because it keeps me organized, is easy to get to discs and holds enough disc to keep me happy. The build quality could be a bit better. It has already sprouted a couple holes and the clip for the strap broke on one side. I had to "modify" it with some duct tape.
used innova comp bag for past 5yrs,just got fade crunch box camo,and the weight diff is noticable,still holds all my game playng disc-12 disc,43 yrs old and love the liteness,takes quads.and put my old divider from comp bag into the crunch,it didnt have much support or a so called divider.do like the bottle holder and it's big zipper pouch and it's small pouch also,mini disc marker pouch in front and side,no complaints.great price also 38$ with the shipping
I, too, am a member of the fade crunch club. at my level, it's the perfect bag. and Harold, it's not "camo" it's "DUDE!" as in "DUDE! WHERE's MY BAG!"
I have the camo Fade Crunch Bag also. It does its job well, but I am looking into getting a backpack style bag sometime soon(summer probably). I have narrowed it down to two bags, the Dual Pack and the Grip bag. I am curious as to which one everybody on here likes better and why. Its a big investment and I want to make sure I get the best one
my wife would kill me if I ordered a grip.
As far as a modifications, I always added a pencil on a retractable janitor key ring style thingie. Keeps the pencil from falling out and impresses the ladies 60% of the time, all the time.
results may vary.
