I've been playing long enough to have used the round Wall City bags. I've got back problems and I'm better thanks to surgery but I still deal with some pain. I've got a little boy so I can't use a cart but will some times hang a small bag off the back of his stroller.

I have a Revo Carolina with Phoenix quads. Very painful (for me) to carry it but it makes a great cart bag.

I've borrowed my wife's Grip bag for a few round and I think it is fantastic.

The latest run of Flaks look like a huge step up from the first runs. I haven't worn one or used one for a round but I'm considering one to replace my Revo. If the Flak is on par with the Grip as far as comfort and support the Flak will be my choice because I think I can put my Cannon 60D in the top compartment.


I also heard a rumor of someone else entering the bag race. Problem it, I would like a bag soon and it seems like nothing good comes from having the first run of a Bag, Both Grip and HyzerBomb have made improvements from the first run to what they have now.

The Flak is the lightest of what you listed, and by far superior storage than the Grip, also.

I have heard that Voodoo is working on a backpack bag, which I will probably get when the time comes. I am more than happy with my Karma and if the quality of that is any indicator, their backpack will be killer.

I voted Grip, but that's just preference. I know a couple local players who use a Golf Mahal. The most recent versions are very quality bags. I won't argue that. It's just WAY too much bag for me.

So I will say it depends on what you carry regularly and what you're looking for. I only carry 14-16 discs and the storage on the Grip is plenty for me. If you carry a lot of stuff, look into the Mahal. The worst thing you could do is buy a Grip because the majority says it's the best and realize you need more.

It also depends on what options you like. The Flak comes with more color options at a lower price point than the Grip, and they recently updated it with bottom feet and an internal frame. You can't really go wrong with either...

Best backpack for the $ in my opinion.. Got mine for $80 from my local dg shop and its perfect for carrying everything and the kitchen sink during a round. Plus it's surprising comfortable for how much weight I have packed in mine
