Default Bag possibility

I saw this bag on sale for 40. Has anyone used this bag our seen one in person? Only problem I see is the putter pocket might have to double as storage.

That is a very interesting find. Could be worth it.

Tamrac has been making decent bags for photog equip for decades- so I can say they aren't a fly by night company. Not familiar with that bag, but typically, photog bags are quite well padded (not necessarily required for DG), and while they are usually well constructed, I don't know they're intended for the kind of use we'd put them through: Being picked up/put down 50-100 (or more) times a day, say 3 days a week or so... all out doors, sometimes on rough terrain. Check it out in person if possible and see how you think it will work for disc storage and return policy. May really come down to how much of the padding is removable.

If after that, you have any reservations about it, I suggest getting the Cabela bag for $10 more.
Enough of us know it's well suited to DG, made for outdoor use, and sold by a company with a decent return policy (prior to mods). IMO, better to spend $50 and be sure than $40 if you aren't.

The depth only being 7.5" might be an issue.

I'm not sure that's going to be big enough. Also, why do you need a putter pocket? A pocket specifically for a putter always seemed frivolous to me.

It's simply convenient to have easy access to the disc you use the most. I like not having to rummage through my other discs to pull out my putter.

I suppose. Although my putter is not my most used disc, and my bag is always organized so I always know where each of my discs are.

I use my putter every hole, at least once.

I ordered it and will take some discs to the store(site to store shipping) and see how it is. If it doesnt fit ill just return it there.

I just got an Ozark from Gateway but cant decide if I like a bag this huge. This one seemed more sleek but I may just end up getting a Cabelas bag.

I have a brand new untouched Cabelas bag if you want to check it out in person.
