i've seen a guy use a ball golf pull cart for his discs.

at the bottom was a cooler (beer probably) to keep it from being top heavy.

He had a rubbermaid box (huge) bungied on it - at waist height. he had to have been carrying 100 discs with him on the course.

that was pretty over the top, it gave me a good chuckle. (pass the beer please!)

Nearly all the guys playing in the Masters division (and a good number of pros/AM1's, actually) in this area use ball-golf pull carts. Most of them use two rubbermaid or other hinged-lid boxes...one at the top of the cart near the handle for discs, one at the bottom for rain gear, beer, utilities, etc. Some of them are a little different...one guy has what looks like a series of sleeves going down the cart that each hold one disc, one guy has some type of big pvc frame that each disc slides into vertically...it's like he just attached a larger version of an internal bag frame.

They can get pretty elaborate. One pro has a slot for his broom to clear off the teepads, another guy has an umbrella holder...but my favorite is the guy that pushes one of the three-wheeled baby jogging strollers! I used to think it was wierd until we backed up during a slow tourney...and he just sat down in the seat and reclined!! :D

I almost went with a cart when I purchased my revolution bag. What sueded me was watching my friend push a baby stroller with discs up a hill while I jogged past him. He seems to be hustling more than I was.

I got thinking that many of the courses that I play are not cart friendly and my local isnt long enough to justify a cart. Still, I find them very cool, especially if you utilise a cooler.

On of the guys down here has one of those new style folding chairs bungied to his cart, so that he can unhook some clips and sit while others are throwing.

That is a sweet idea. My friend has a couple of old push carts. I'm gonna see if he wants to make one tomorrow. Even if we don't use it that much, it'd be kickass to make.

thank you for all the replies!

I have the innova delux bag but it doesnt hold everything i want which is why im looking into designing a cart.


still if you guys have any pictures id greatly appreciate it so I can have some sort of visual idea. Thanks again, you guys really are a great help.

there's plenty of bags out there that have substantial additional storage vs. the innova deluxe bag... may want to explore one of those before you are $100+ deep into a cart.

yah blake i thought about that, but the revolution and others are already 100+. I really wanna wait til the new innova tour bag comes out, but we'll see what happens.

i guess ill take your advise and explore my options, i just like the idea of not having that weight on my shoulders.

thanks for your input though, always appreciated

i would stay away from the innova tour bag.

3 diff manufacturers and still had rip problems = maybe they should change the design. i'd be willing to wager the next tour bag will have the same rip problems.

there are cheaper revo bags under $100 as well as gateway bags that are under $100 as well.

Is this what you had in mind?

Get the whole thing....cart and bag....or get the bag itself to put on your own pull cart. I couldn't get the short url to work, but search ebay for wallaby disc golf cart and you should find it.

skysouth used to make that bag, and i believe the guy that did the cart mods was from texas (i have corresponded with him before)

the upside is that they look nice, the downside is that they do not solve the storage problem.

most of the cart designs with significant storage use either wire baskets or mini plastic file cabinets. the downside of these is that they aren't very well balanced, take up a ton of space, don't double as a stool, and aren't very durable.

i just picked up a cart today and am currently modding it to be the ultimate DG cart. im not sure if i should just mount my bag on the cart or get a box. but the things im putting on for sure are a cooler at the bottom, a cup holder don't wanna spill my beer(or water, but most likely beer) by setting it on the ground when i throw, a slot for a fold up chair, and small box for supplies(sharpie, rags, sunglasses). it's already got a score card holder and slots for my pencils. its gonna be BA. its really not that expensive either, the cart was 15 bucks a box is 12. so if yu really got into it it would only be a max of 50ish.
