Post your bags
« on: September 25, 2006, 09:47:56 AM »
Just curious what kind of bags everyone is using. Please list any likes or dislikes. I'm currently shopping for a new bag and looking at these two:

http://www.bowling.com/products/columbia-300-ez-rider-2-ball-roller-black.htm
Thanks
Also what do you look for in a bag, pockets, room, material???

I have a 3-ball Storm Streamline that's about three years old.  It's held up very well except for one zipper on the front pocket.  It's off-track and the pull handle is bent pretty badly from trying to get it back on track.  The other works, and they're both off to the side, so I can still get into the pocket.

I really like the fact that the ball cups are deep.  A few others around here have Brunswick and Ebonite bags and they complain that the ball cups are pretty shallow and allow a good bit of movement.

The bag has plenty of room for accessories, though I wish I had the newer one with two smaller pockets instead of one long one, as little things tend to slide all over the place and get in the way of putting my shoes away.

This is what I have, easy to get through when the isles are crowded.

 Just make sure what ever bag you get try to get the large wheels on the bag. Makes it much easier to use.

I have a KR Special Edition 3 ball bag.  Great quality product, lots of room.  Never had a problem with it for the past 5 years.

I also have a Lane Master Tote bag for the extras...

I have the same bag as Saint Jake and I'm very happy with it.  This is my second one and they hold up really well against baggage handlers at the airport

P.S. - Mine's navy/black

I was thinking about getting this one to replace my two ball roller. My biggest concern is the stability. Do you ever have problems with it tipping to the side because the wheels are too thin?

i have a brunswick 3 ball roller( the black and yellow one ) and a brunswick 2 ball tote( the black and yellow one ). both work great and are very durable. i also have a brunswick joey for when i want to attach a fourth ball to the 3 ball bag---what a great idea. it really fits snug and works well.

KR 4 ball roller that is around 10 years old.  I also use various 2 ball totes around the shop.

I have the kr se 3-4-5 same as brunswick option i love mine the wheels are very wide and make it very stable and easy to manuver only thing is i wish the outer bag had a steel shank in it to make it solid it isnt tippy but the bag does flex quite a bit in that spot and i was thinking it might get weak after a while but that is what the 5 year warranty is for hope this helps some

I just use brunswick totes, the new ones with the clear tops. Holding up well so far.

I use almost the same exact set up. I just use the blu brunswick tote instead of the yellow one.

No problems with stability as of yet.

The only thing I have seen is the weight getting the bag in and out of vechile, if you dont have enough umph !!!!
