I initially read item #14 as encouraging the carrying of a bottle of 151. :shock:

Is Revolution still planning on releasing a new backpack design?

I'm still wondering that myself. I've been excited ever since I heard the rumor last year.

Eh, the company that really jumped the disc golf bag forward was Gateway. The Gateway bags from '96-'97 were a whole new world compared to the Wall City crapola bags we had been using. Gateway was the first bag with and internal frame, and it was leaps and bounds better than the other bags around. You can argue that the Revo's pushed that farther forward, but it wasn't a huge gap between the early Revo's and the Gateway bags. Gateway just lost its focus. Bags were just something else they did. Revo left them in the dust at some point, but we got Wizards so what the Hell.

I bought a revolution carolina last april. I love the bag. The main reason I bought it was because of the large side pockets. On casual rounds I like to be able to carry a 6 pack of tall boys which the side pockets allow. For tournaments I can carry as many towels and stuff as I want. The only thing I don't like about the bag is that I wish I could carry 2-4 more discs. I would consider the carolina very relevant if you only want to carry 18 discs. If you want more I would consider something else.

The only bag I would get to replace my carolina would be the Voodoo Karma since it has the big pockets with a little more space for discs.

Btw quality is still top notch. After a year of use mine is just as nice as when I first got it.

That's definitely true. My first bag was a Gateway bag that I got in 2002...It lasted my first 3 years of DG and some serious abuse before it started wearing through on the bottom. I had to go through some hoops to get a Gateway bag back then, but it was much better and less expensive than the best Innova/Discraft offerings at the time.

Revo bags are still hanging in there, I'd say I still see more revo's among tourney players than anything else.

My friend has the Gateway backpack and I really like the way its set up.

I rock the pumpkin orange crunch box w/quads, and I will until it breaks or I win something roomier. But then I only throw like 5 different molds so its JUST enough bag for me. I'm really happy with the durability of this bag seeing as I paid like 30 bucks shipped for it 8)

Yeah, I was thinking it would be obvious that it was a joke. I found the douchiest picture I could find.

how hard was it to find the douchiest one given that it is santorum.


i didn't like my carolina, those side pockets are unnecessarily deep, the bottom was showing wear, and the internal frame was cracking only after a year of use. i eventually traded it for a silverback. i also own a squirrel monkey.
