Whatever you do..
« on: July 26, 2008, 08:16:50 PM »
DO NOT BUY THE BRUNSWICK OR KR 3 BALL TOTE WITH METAL HANDLE!!

This is the worst bag i have used. I have the Vise 3 ball tote and that was getting a little annoying with the strap handle, the balls would just hang there. So my pro shop said KR and Brunswick are coming out with a new 3 ball tote that still makes it under the 50lbs requirement for air travel. Well after trying it out for a week, the bag tips over a lot and feels like the handle is going to snap right off. I went back to my pro shop and he called them and asked about these problems. Apparently you are suppose to push the bag instead of pull it. Even while pushing, you cant really control where you are going. If you want a 3 ball roller to reach air flight requirements, just bite the bullet and get a regular Vise 3 ball tote. Vise last longer than every other company. Just my 2 cents.

I took the new bag three ball brunswick tote with the handle to nationals. It just made it under 50#. It is not as steady as the Vise like you say,but I didn't have any problems pulling it thru the airport. You just can`t make any sharp turns or it will tip over. It is easier to pull than the Vise tote because of the position of the handle vs the strap on the Vise bag. Also return with no apparant damage with one plane transfer each way.
 KR needs to make it with a little wider wheel base like the Vise, then it would be alot better.
