Cool to use a Rosin Bag?

I've used one for years and the few tourneys I've played in no one has said nothing.

My hands sweat a ton so I have to use a rosin bag to keep em dry.

I don't really know the rules since I'm more of a just play for fun kinda guy. So what are your guys thoughts?

If you are asking if its OK then, it doesn't matter. never heard of it should post some info.

I am pretty sure you can wear a glove if you wanted to.

It's not against the rules. I used to have one too but found birdie bags to be more effective. Rosin bags will eventually start caking up on your hand and leaving residue whereas the birdie bags just keep absorbing.

Wait.never heard of a Rosin bag?

Bowlers use them all the time when their hands sweat. I like to do bowling with the family. I got me one of the bags from the machine and decided that this would be useful for disc golf too.

Speaking of glove,there is a kid out on the course who uses one. Well he's not a kid but clearly 15 years or more younger than me,so yeah I call him a kid. haha

Cool. I may have to look into one of those bags then. I think those were called something else in bowling too. it was like a big bulky looking thing,where my bag is just a small chalky looking bag.

Is it "cool" to use one? Not really. Way cooler to smoke cigs. People are gonna see you with your taped together glasses, pocket protector, and rosin bag, and you're gonna get branded geek for life.

Soooo, you're asking if it's ok to use a rosin bag during sanctioned events of the Casual Disc Golf Association?

You have a problem? Just asking a question is all.
