Smile Suggestions on what bag to get for my first bag

Hey,
I've been playing DG for every day for about a month now. I had played a few times here and there years back, but recently I've really gotten into it. I'm trying to limit myself for the time being to just play with a few discs to improve my technique, but eventually I'd like to add more to my bag. I'm looking for a bag that has pretty good capacity (15+) so that I don't have to replace it right away. I don't really carry a much else with me, just the usual water, wallet, keys, cell phone, towel, sharpie, pen, scorecard, mini. I'm probably looking at spending $50 or less and have been looking at the Innova Deluxe bag. Does anyone have experience with this bag? Any other bags you would suggest? is the Innova Competition bag worth the price jump? thanks for your help!

competition is great. I take 16 with me in it, and it can hold up to 25.

I'd say Innova Competition or Fade Crunch if you want to hold 15+ discs. Make sure to get some backpack-style straps as well - Innova and Phenix both make some.

I highly recommend the Fade Crunch. 2-putter pocket, insulated drink holder, plenty of pockets (including a mini-pocket) and 3 pencil holders. Takes backpack style straps too.

Revolution deluxe mini or team carolina and get you some quad shocks!

Sure this is expensive however you will only have to do it one time!

I have the Fade Gear Tourney Bag and the Pheonix Backpack straps. ~$80 setup, but extremely worth it. Don't cut corners on the straps. Do yourself a favor and buy the Pheonix ones. I don't think they Innova ones are anywhere near as comfortable. As for the Fade Gear bag, it was less that the Innova competition, so I went for the cheaper price.

Yes, it is. I'm currently rocking the Dirt variant.

15+ is pushing it with the Fade Crunch. Go with the Tourney if you are sure you need space for 15 or more discs.

I agree. If you really need to carry 15+ discs, get a Fade Tourney bag. I got a Fade Crunch last X-mas and love it. I carry 14 discs in it...2 putters, 2 mids, and the rest drivers. (I only throw half those discs on a regular basis.) The drink holder is big enough for a 32oz. Gatorade bottle and the extra pocket can hold bug spray, keys, cell, a couple minis, & a few snack bars. It's a great value at DGC.
