Revolution bag inserts/cradles ?

What are people doing when their Revolution bag inserts/cradles break ?

Are you buying a new one from Revolution or fabricating one with plastic pipe ?

Two Revo bags.
Fabricated one frame and repaired the other.

I took mine out before it broke. Really didn't like the sound of it, nor did I like the way felt across my back.

Instead, I just used some of that corrugated plastic board doubled up on the bottom, and a square piece up on each side, with a shaved pool noodle on both sides of the bottom of the discs to make a bit of a cradle and soft lip to hold the discs in place. Viola. Much quieter, sturdy, and quite comfortable.

Another thought.
Before Revo started using the custom molded frame, they used plastic cardboard end pieces held together with two wood dowels

Anyone done an inverted cradle for a Carolina? I'm looking for ideas. Might just go pool noodles or soda can diameter PVC and corrugated plastic. Any other suggestions/ideas/examples? Pics would be stellar.

Oh and by "inverted" I just mean all the discs face the same direction as the putters up front.

I think the word is transverse cradle.

That would be a lot of wasted space, and would probably hold only 10ish (max, I'd assume) discs in the main compartment. Then, there would be gaping open areas on both sides of the discs.

I'll take a picture from of my pool noodle set-up and put them up here so you can see how everything fits (give me a few days.... family time!). I've had it this way for more than a year, and it's still functioning perfectly.

I want to carry less discs without them clanking around, and without wadding extra towels in the sides to bring the discs to the center. I'm also hoping the bag will be easier to carry like the Ergo in the horizontal setup.
