3 ball totes
« on: July 27, 2017, 07:31:23 PM »
I see a lot of people using 3 ball totes and a backpack.  I don't see much advantage to this.  If you had a 4 ball roller you can put all your stuff in it.  What is your preference and why?

One vote for a 4 ball roller. I wish I could still use my 3 ball roller, but I switched to 4 since the weight's easy to lift in and out. Going to a 3 ball and backpack strikes me as much more difficult than a 4 ball.

I'm all totes and a backpack. Right now, I have 1 3 ball tote and 2 2 ball totes. I'm even wanting to just slim down more and get rid of the 2 ball totes in favor of ones without pouches. I tried a backpack and love it.

 A big fan of 3 ball totes (although I have a number of 2 ball totes). I'm also a fan of the removable 4 ball rollers as well.

I prefer the 3 ball roller totes. They are more compact (than the 4 ball rollers) and
there is no disassembly needed to get them into and out of, my trunk.

In and out of the trunk in one motion.

I prefer the 4 ball rollers. Especially the Rolling Thunders. The handles retract very low. Easy to fit into either car we have. Easier to lift 30 lbs than 45.

As for moving around the centers, its a polite "excuse me", then I start slowing rolling away. Move your feet or get bumped. If there is no hole, then I just wait. Not that big of a deal. Smaller tote wouldn't help.

I like the 3 ball tournament tote from storm and roto. The one with the removable shoe pouch and accessory pocket.

I get one of those and (typically it's the roto) and matching 2 ball totes, one deluxe one reg tote. 

One 3 ball tote, two 2ball totes means you can set up anyway you want!

3 balls in the roller
4 balls in the two totes
5 balls in a 3 ball roller and 1 2 ball tote
7 balls in all three bags.

It's the most cost effective way to transport 7 balls in style too.  Especially if u buy rotos version from last year on closeout.  That's the roto method. Storm if you include the rolling thunder 3 ball roller they have matching bags.  Easiest way to go from house mouse to tournament bowler.  Cause u can't go to league with a 4 or 6 ball roller can you LMAO?  Noone does that anymore right?

Your welcome!
