With "only" 18discs in the main and 4 putters on top will the Octo Haul feel much larger/heavier than the Octothorpe?
Not at all. You can cinch the haul pockets down with the straps to make it basically the same size as the Thorpe.

Had to ship my Octothorpe in for a repair, took about 2 weeks total to get it back from the time I shipped it. Easy communication by email and kept me updated when the repair was finished and the bag was being shipped back.

And I'm so glad to have it back - I like the shift but being able to add a couple extra utility discs and the overall comfort is just unmatched. Still, looking at getting a custom carlton next year...

Can΄t really find any pics with the haul pockets cinch down, but it sounds like a nice idea. . but still it΄s $50 more for not THAT much "more bag" over the Octo

And to get a +$500 bag ( with rain-fly ) to Sweden is going to ad another $160 . .

Hard to decide. . i have a Octo and a Grip BX. . .hmm Octo-haul or Carlton next?

Looks like the Haul is 0,5kg heavier than the Octo
And 3" Wider at Bottom and 1" at Top

So the extra size don΄t really worries me. . but that extra weight kind of do

Thinking about a custom Octo-Haul and a stock Carlton with rain-fly for wet rounds ( i carry less discs in the rain )
