When I ordered mine they were offering free shipping on orders over $60. It's pretty easy to spend another $10 at cabela's. I used it as an excuse to buy a pair of $12 socks, no way I'd normally by a $12 pair of socks but it was a nice trade for a $15 in shipping charge.

It's back to sold out again online. I spoke with a Cabelas service rep online and he told me that this item "will not be restocked". He said it may come back as a new product when the new fishing catalog comes out later this month, but it may be different and will be under a new product number. Hmmm.

I tried out this configuration and really liked getting the discs from the top rather than the bottom-front. I still wanted to have some storage space, so I made this--



So the discs are now sitting a bit higher. Since I hacked off the sunglasses holder, the top-front flap can be folded in.



Opening the bottom-front, you can store a few things: couple of water bottles, some extra towels, or even a small insulated lunch bag.


Yes, when you open the bottom, you will see the bottom of the discs. I didn't want the discs to sit too high, so I tried varying heights. This is what I settled on. Plus, the strip between the bottom and top openings help to hold in the discs.

One thing I did notice is that there's a slight bulge from the discs in the middle of the back. Nothing extreme; most of the weight is now there instead of the bottom. Also, I think with this setup you may lose a disc or two of capacity. Not sure. I've got 4 putters (not counting the two in the pocket), 4 mids, 4 fairways, and 4 drivers with room for one more driver.

I have yet to take it on course to give it a real go.

So how many of these things have they sold to disc golfers?

... and as far as I know, Tistoude's yet to receive a commission check or even a gift card.

Here's the scoop: Their website says sold out, and the local store in Dundee, Mi is out.

But when I spoke to the guy in Dundee, he said he saw a few in their stores out west (surprise! trout fisherman like 'em too) as well as:

Wichita, KS store shows 6 in stock
Tulalip, WA has a few
and a few in TX.

If you really want one, just click a red location on their store location map to bring up the phone # and whatnot.

good luck!

I finally got my bag and love it. I did a couple little mods that I've bad worked out in my head. It's just so comfortable and a great buy if you don't want to spend the money on a grip. I'd love to post pics but my iPhone isn't very dgcr friendly.

The eugene oregon store had 5 in stock as of Wednesday.

I will be messing around with this bag next weekend.

Is there some type of fabric spray that will make it water resistant?
