How To Buy A Disc Golf Bag
Disc Golf Bag
Other than the discs that you use, the most important part of your disc golf equipment is your bag. It's where you put your disc, and all the other things that you need to play disc golf. There are many many choices of a disc golf bag that you can buy now. They vary from small low price bags that will carry just the basics, all the way up to big bags you can carry 20 discs and lots of accessories. There are a few backpack disc golf bags. Some guys even use carts to carry their bag. I won't get into carts in this article. This is about the bag.
Determining the bag you need is not always a cut and dried decision. Most longtime players have more than one bag that they use for different situations. I have a smaller 10 o 12 disc bag that I use for a quick game on a short course. I also have a midsize bag which i don't often use, and a large bag for when I play on a longer tougher course.
The truth be told, when it comes down to it I personally only use about 7 or 8 different discs in most rounds of disc golf. I do carry extra discs of my favorites, and a couple that are specialized for a particular type of hole.
