Must be nice I'm hoping to pick up one of these bags eventually. Hope they come out with some new stock colors next year.

The DD EZ Go cart by zuca would be a good option for the octohaul. You have access to everything. Only downside is it doesnt have a seat.

Received my Clay 2017 Octothorpe last Thursday and took it out for two rounds over the weekend. One course was a ~6000' mix of wooded and open holes and the other was a heavily wooded ~4500' on a mountain. Both have a ton of elevation change.

First and foremost this bag rides very light and comfortable. It rides noticeably lighter and it's the first round in a while where I wasn't even remotely fatigued coming into the last few holes. Huge plus for a fatso like me.

The second plus is the construction. Had another league player, who has 25 years plus as a contractor and currently owns the 2017 GBO bag, envious of the Octothorpe saying it looks like Carhartt made it.

Dose anyone use a divider or Stand in the main compartment when not needing to fill it up? I usually carry a full bag of 5 putters and 18 in the main but I am looking to cut a few discs to make Tournament choices easier...Maybe just move 3 putters down to the main...thanks for any help

I regularly use the drink insert that comes with the bag in the main compartment, it fits perfectly and allows me to carry ~14 discs snuggly. This opens up the side pockets for extra storage as well, and is one of my favorite features of the bag. My friends comment on how great of a function that is, and I can comfortably carry a few more tall boys that way!

They look nice but $350-$420 for Cordura Nylon??? I used to do a ton of backpacking and I just don't see why this bag should be this expensive?? I have a couple of Osprey packs that cost this much but have a much better suspension design and hold 3 times as much. I'm trying to justify the price point for some of these disc golf bags and I just don't see it?? But they do look nice

Osprey packs are sewn in Vietnam. Nothing wrong with that, but it lowers the cost. Also, they've got volume on their side.

Pound bags are sewn by hand, one at a time, in the USA. And have top-notch warranty repairs. If you'll ever need them. They're pricy. And they're more comfortable and detail oriented than any other DG pack I've ever seen. I think that is important for a pack you are going to carry different ways (one shoulder two shoulders, by the grab handle) and you're going to pick up and put down 50+ times per round.

But yeah, spendy. And the best investment I have made in DG (except for a lesson).
