You're going to end up building your own bag sooner or later, might as well be sooner.

I've seriously considered it. I probably would have if I knew how to sew. My mom is a killer seamstress, so I may have to employ her skills

Or take an existing bag and build a frame, many such contraptions have worked out really well.

I'd like to see the two bags side by side to get a better idea how they compare. If anyone can do that it would be great.

I still like the Kong for tournament play and the Silverback for more casual rounds. I know they aren't backpacks. Maybe GB is looking into that. Although they already have 7 models. And Chris has no time to himself as it is. :lol:

DGDave, you will never be happy no matter what bag you get. :mrgreen:

My prodiscus bag is my tourney bag. It is a big ass bag but it doesn't get use for every round. I still use my old silverback for casual rounds. I think the prodiscus bag would be too much for me to carry as my main bag.

I am having a similar problem to frank with my prodiscus as my everyday bag. When I play a tournament round, I may carry 23 discs, an umbrella, 3 drinks, 3 towels, etc. The prodiscus swallows all that up and still rides great. My normal rounds at the home course however, I only need 10 discs one drink and a towel. The prodiscus is huge overkill for this and I go back to using my innova bag because it works better underfilled than the prodiscus bag does.

That makes me much more happy with me getting a grip and canceling my prodiscus order a few months back.

I've not seen a prodiscus in person but I find that my Grip is very scalable in the sense that I can cram a bunch into it or only a 10 or so for casual rounds. It definitely holds everything I could need (layers, trex, beer.... whatever) for a round in any condition.

I went with the prodiscus bag b/c the grip is too large for my everyday use also so I figure I might as well get the bigger bag for tourneys.

I think I'm gonna make a bag out of Gore-Tex and Kevlar with a Vibram rubber bottom (©dgdave 2012) (bitches)
