Hey, me either. I hope my post didn't come off that way.

I'll DIY some things (because the DIY process for that particular thing might interest me), and buy off-the-shelf for other things.

Heck, I'm in software development. My kind is somewhat famous for DIY-ing all kinds of stuff (software) for personal use. Some of the best apps are born from that, while others never see the light of day but keep being used by the person who made it. And yet other times, buying someone else's software makes the most sense.

(For a few years it seemed like almost every web developer had written his own blogging engine that worked *just* the way they liked...).

Agree. Just "better" or "right" for the individual.

Ok ... I'm gonna need help with some explanations .... see I started disc golf in February and bought a fade gear bag for the few discs I was carrying ... throughout this year I kept buying discs and swapping stuff out in the bag ... it got heavy and just last month I bought an innova competition bag off the marketplace and some quads locally down at the Nati and I absolutely love the setup ...

then I found this thread ...

and today I just ordered the damn Cabela's bag ..... sooooo how do I explain to my wife I actually NEED 3 bags for golf discs.

You can justify it by telling her that the fade is your glow bag, the comp is your tourney bag, and the cabela is your all-purpose everyday bag.

Or sell the Fade and Comp bags? If you started in February, the bags should be in good condition. Just sell them BEFORE you show anyone your new backpack... ;-)

I used to carry a Innova Competition bag. I built a Cabelas bag about a month a go...will never go back. My backpack holds more stuff and feels lighter. I can easily carry a jacket, discs (12) and any spares I need during a tournament. Water bottle setup isn't good, but I normally drink between rounds anyway. Still tweaking the PVC a little, but its an awesome pack. Overall, is it a better bag than a GRIP? No. I believe it holds more stuff, but GRIP is the ultimate disc solution. Is a GRIP worth 3 times more? Well, I can't speak to that...

How about using something like this for carrying water with this bag ?

Buy some pink discs, put them in the Fade bag, and give it to your wife telling here you'd love to spend some more time together.

Result 1- She loves it and you get to go out and play more (I assume you like your wife)

Result 2- She doesn't get into DG but loves the thought that you wanted to include her. You get to keep the bag and not get as much flack when you leave to play (always invite her even though she'll say no). Plus... if you're smart and you get discs YOU like in pink you get to keep the discs too. Pink is one of the best colors to find in the woods.

Either way, you win.

You don't need anything but heavy duty thread and a needle you can bend to make it through the stitch holes. Just make a few extra stitches on each end of the middle seam and it will be fine.
