ah - sorry - I misunderstood your question, and just thought you may have missed that post (I almost missed the link @ first read).

There almost no pressure on the discs when you put it in "backwards". It already stretched out perfect over night.
Right now i have 23 discs in my bag with no problem and still nothing in the pocket under the main compartment.

It works better that way but still tight. It'll probably stretch out though. I could see the rim of the putter catching on the bottom of the bottle as you pull it out. Might end up pulling the bottle out with it if you don't hold it as you pull out the putter.

Thanks for the help guys! I found one of the Nalgene canteens for only $8.50 so it is currently in my bag stretching out. It will definitely fit with a disc on one side, but I am not sure about the other. The frame seems to be infringing on the pocket more on that side. More stretching will commence!

Anyone ever use the GI canteens? They're BPA-Free and $5.75 on Amazon.

I GOT MY BAG TODAY! Immediately loaded it up with absolutely everything in my Fade tourney bag, plus a six pack & headed out to play 18 holes. This thing is awesome. Obviously, I now drive further & putt better, too, but that probably went without saying...

Yup! I shaved 5 strokes off my game, but when I changed the disc configuration to my current set up. I dropped another 10 strokes. Even better. I get an ace per nine!
My God? what will happen when they fix the current design flaws?

I decided to try out the Platypus Plusbottle with the pop top. Had some dividend money on my REI account, so I only paid about $10.

Here's some pics. This is with the soft bottle full at 34 oz. My Mako3 goes in and out with no problem. It doesn't deform the disc at all. The soft bottle conforms to what's around it. Tomorrow, I'll see how it works out on the course.

later
