Bag prices!
« on: July 17, 2008, 06:56:13 AM »
How is it that a three ball rolling tote can cost 45-69 dollars when i can get a softball bag at Dick's Sporting goods for under 30 dollars that has a million accessory pockets!???? What is the deal!?

No way a softball bag will be heavy enough material to carry bowling balls in it. IMO, just spend a few extra $$ and get a bowling bag..

It's the construction of the bowling bag.  The bowling bag is designed for the equipment.  A softball bag will work but is just designed for stuff to be tossed into.  Sure you can buy a bag cheaper and if it works great.  If not it's a pain in the neck.

Just try throwing you bowling balls into your softball bag. I don't think it would hold 45lbs.

Does the softball bag have a way to keep the balls from rolling around inside?  Are the accessory pouches large enough to hold a pair of shoes?  Will it keep your balls from crushing whatever's in the accessory pockets?  Is the handle sturdy enough to support carrying 50+ pounds of stuff?

Manufacturers making obscene profits on poorly made goods?

How can this be?

Im so glad people are brainwashed to think that TRACK sucks. And its even funnier when im carrying with my TRACK ball and they're going flat ten with their BRUNSWICK ball.

I am going to purchase one of these softball bags and give it a try. I think what I am going to do is take some of the packaging foam from out computer boxes at work and cut it up and make some dividers for the bag. I will take some pictures and post them once I am done!

This was a joke. Maybe not a good one. But the point was you get what you pay for.
