My quad shocks broke the first round I used them. Supposedly they have been having problems lately. If you can, get the older ones.....

I carry about 20 discs and a few bottles of water, but the weight doesn't really bother me with the single strap. The single strap also makes it really easy to pick up/set down, which I feel like would be more difficult with the quad straps.

Basically I need someone to sell me on these things. Any takers?
Difference: It all depends on how much you play. If you play really often, it will take some of the stress off of your shoulders and back. If you don't play often it wont make a big difference. For me personally I really like having the straps.
Eases of taking them off: The quad straps go on and off as easily as any single strap. There is NO difference. But for those long walks between holes both straps are really nice.

I play just about every day so I'm sure I could benefit from making the switch. Thanks.

I am not certain this is true. I'll ask Kyle (owner of Phenix) next time I am in his shop.... (which wont be long from now)

I have the Innova straps my club gets a discount through Innova. So for about $16.00 I can't complain.

I am currently using Innova Backsavers. No real complaints except the stitching is coming undone in one spot.(2 months old) I just ordered the Quad Shocks this morning to see what all the fuss is about. I have a fused spine with 2 steel rods keeping it all straight, so I'm all about a "comfy" ride!

I'll add this as well: I have phenix quads. I love them, they are comfortable, well made and strong as anything. My wife has a pair of the Innova straps (just bought a couple months ago). They are decent, but not as padded and comfortable as my quads. They seem pretty durable, but are not made the same. The clips are not as good or strong feeling as the ones on my quads.

Conclusion: The Innova straps are pretty good and seem pretty tough. But for my money, it is just smart money to spend the extra 5-10 bucks (look around, you can find them for like various prices) on the Phenix Quads just because of the extra comfort factor along with the proven durability. The Innova straps might be good, but the Phenix's are just a bit better and worth the extra few bucks.


Phenix now, thank us all later.
