The world of disc golf bags seems to be quite large.
There’s not just a few you can look through to see which one you like best — there are so many! That showed in last week’s poll when we asked our readers what kind of bag they used.
A total of 228 people votes in this poll with the winner being an Innova bag with 59 votes (26 percent). Fade was second with 46 votes (20 percent), followed by Revolution (29 votes/13 percent) and GripEQ (27 votes/12 percent).
The fifth spot went to other brand — so 22 voters use a brand we didn’t list.
There were some interesting bags mentioned, too. Reader Chris Leo talked very highly about the Mystery Ranch Golf Mahal bag. If you haven’t seen one of these yet, follow the link. Wow. Talk about being able to pack a lot of stuff. I’m sure this bag wouldn’t be for a lot of people, but it could be used in a lot of situations!
There also seems to be some love for the GripEQ bags. In the research I’ve done, they seem like a great backpack bag.
At least one reader mentioned being ready to downsize their bag — and I’m on the same page there. Though I love the revolution bag I carry, the reality is I don’t need something that size all the time. So I might be looking to find a good, rugged bag for casual rounds so I can carry fewer discs and have a lighter walk.
One other thing I noticed with some of the responses were people saying they had more than one bag they used. I assume that it’s the difference between serious and casual play. Either way, it seems to be a logical choice for some to have this sort of a setup.
Reader Stan the Man even tells us about a homemade pull/push cart that he uses. I’ve seen several people who have done this and I’m sure there are many others out there who do this.
In the end, it seems like people have a couple different reasons for the brand of bag they use — capacity, comfort, what they carry and ease of use. It’s obviously a personal preference, but it’s interesting to see what people think when choosing products such as a bag.
Thanks to everyone who commented and voted. As usual, we like to send a little something out to a random person chosen from those who commented on the site.
This week, the randomizer over at Random.org selected Steve as the winner. I’ll be contacting you via e-mail for your address so I can send you a prize!
And now for this week’s poll!
With all this talk about bags and the size of them and what they carry, we got wondering…
What about the discs?
I’ll let you decide whether this is for casual or serious play — or any other kind of play. But we want to know:
How many discs do you carry during a round? Are you a minimalist? Do you carry many? Maybe it’s doubles of five discs? Four putters?
Vote away and let us know in the comments your thoughts and reasons why you carry as many or as few of discs as you do. A random commenter will be selected for a prize, so make sure you leave your thoughts!
