I'm also wondering how these bags are holding up in the long run. I'm considering buying one. It's hard to beat my Revo Carolina bag though.

Booter, we've all been talking ...and we think it's time you put down the 40. This is your intervention.

I disagree with your classification of me as a "fuckn[sic] fucker" you cat-raping feltching enthusiast.

got my frame trimmed and assembled tonight. pics

following chris' design on the gb bags and emillers specs on pipe size and plugs i just modified mine to fit my mahal. trimmed the side panels low and fit it in there nice n snug. pipe is about 8.25'' long . probably can go 8.5 but this works fine. nice and snug with no movement,the discs sit a little higher and dont sag out the bottom as you can se in the last pic. works good. thanks emiller for those measurements!

I'm thinking a frame will cause more wear than having nothing at all. Revo Carolinas have this happen because of the pressure points on the bottom. I don't mind the sagging.

I doubt that frame will do much, especially with only 12-14 discs in it. My Chimp's frame has done virtually nothing to the bottom of my bag after 100+ rounds. The Revo frame is a lot sharper edged and carries more weight since it fits more discs.

Just ordered my Mahal, in ACU, apparently they only made 4 in that color this year. Pays to call and ask I guess. Can whoever made that internal frame send me the specs? Thanks

Just sold my Mahal. I bought it and used it for a few rounds but gave up on it and returned to my Revolution bag. I offered it for sale at $20 less than I paid for it and sold it in 10 minutes (at Am Nats, there were lots of potential buyers). Maybe I should have offered it at $20 more than I paid for it??

Now I am considering trying a Grip Bag. It may be worth a few bucks to try it out.

Oh, and I just bought a used cart. Like all bag options, it ain't perfect, even caddies have their drawbacks.

It was friendly of you to sell a limited run product for less than you bought it for, I'm guessing you could've gotten the 20$ extra easily :)
