2 Ball Totes
« on: October 23, 2008, 04:42:46 AM »
is carrying two, two ball totes that bad?   the reason i ask is i currently have a 3 ball roller and want to upgrade to a 4ball carrier. But i drive a jeep wrangler and trunk space is limited and i would think the 4 ball roller would be a royal P.I.T.A to get in and out.  anywho, if anybody who carries 2 two ball totes could chime in, or anybody who has figured out how to stuff a 4ball roller into a small trunk, please chime in.

no its not that bad as long as you can stand carrying them. I keep my 3 2ball totes on me but I may only take 2 in the center. they take up a lot less space

ME: 3 ball tote roller + 2 ball tote bag = 5 balls
Not that I need or use all of them. Sometimes I bring 5 + plastic

If you have a roller, I found 2 ball totes just for balls a very handy addition. I use a 3 ball in-line roller (a Brunswick International piece, which had been on sale 2 years ago) and also a Brunswick 2 ball tote (also international). This combo is pretty versatile, because the 3 ball roller holds shoes and all the other stuff, and the tote still can be carried on the top of the roller, held by the stretched handles. Quite stable! Should also work with a 2 ball roller.

I use a hammer in-line four ball tote.  The fourth goes on top behind the compartment for shoes and ditty bag.  I don't have any problem getting it in and out of a smallish trunk, but hoisting 65 lbs. doesn't bother me.  If you have back issues you might want to think twice, but then again I just have to hoist it in and out of the trunk and then roll it around.  I imagine carrying four balls around on your shoulder would get a little burdensome, especially on the nights you have to park in the back of the lot.

I've been using 2 2-ball totes for the past year or so.
I had a 3 ball in-line, and a 4-ball roller, which were a PITA.
I had to carry it up 30 steps every night...
Carrying the 2 ball totes, is good exercise...
If you have shoulder issues, I wouldn't recommend using the 2 ball totes.

i have a brunswick 3 ball roller. i attach the joey on the telescoping handle and it works great carrying the 4th ball.

I just went from a 3 ball roller to a Roto Grip 4 ball roller, the top bag detaches for ease of loading and storing in your vehicle.

I myself use the Ebonite 4-ball inline bag and seems to work great for me. I used to carry 2 2-ball totes with me. For me it's easier with the 4-ball inline and doesn't take up alot of space.

I bought a KR Cruiser 3 Ball Roller today.
I have been using 2 2-ball totes for awhile.
I'll use the 3 ball roller and one 2 ball tote.
I find that some nights I need the xtra ball, that is at home sitting in the closet.

I personally have a 4 ball streamliner as well as a 2 ball tote on top and sometimes for practice Ill bring my single ball tote on top of all that.

Lastly trunkspace shouldnt be an issue, I hvae a 73 mustang coupe and it has the spare tire in the trunk with the cover and all but I can get my 2 ball tote 4 ball roller my single ball tote and my friends 2 ball roller and 1 ball tote. So yes Im sure itll all fit in your jeep. However I have only done this twice during the summer when my other car was in the shop.
