GDS Player Bag

Posted: 11-10-01

My Review:
The GDS Player Bag is a medium-large capacity bag with most of the features desired in a disc golf bag. It has a heavily padded shoulder strap, 2 large zippered pockets, 1 small external zippered pocket, 2 external pockets, and an insulated drink holder. The material is heavy and durable and the bag has an internal PVC frame that helps stabilize the discs and prevent warping. The frame has a carrying capacity of around 14-16 discs depending upon the dome height of the discs. Each of the large zippered pockets should hold 2-3 discs each and the external pockets can easily hold a disc each as well. The average carrying capacity is around 20 with a maximum capacity of around 22-24 discs. The frame is approximately equal size to the GDS Weekend Deluxe, but the Player Bag definately has more room for storage. It is rather expensive carrying a price in the $65-75 range, but from my experience with bags, you get what you pay for. The only issues I have with the bag is the lack of a pocket for mini-markers and no definite scorecard/pen pocket. I will warn that the Player Bag, like the Tour Bag, can get quite heavy when loaded to capacity, so if you plan on playing multiple rounds with the bag filled to the brim, I recommend a dual strap system to ease the burden.
