Still have my Phenix quads on my Gorilla Boy Kong that I bought over a decade ago. Don't see myself switching it up anytime soon.

Have voodoo straps, phenix, dga, brownbelt, dynamic straps (wide and thin, used fade, and Innova straps.

Most comfortable: Voodoo- the way the cushioning makes it the most comfortable, although doesn't have the most padding, so if you use the one shoulder sling method it can get squished on the one shoulder.

Most durable: Phenix, but you can't get them anymore. Second up would be a tie between the dynamic wide straps and the voodoo.

Cushioning durability: Dynamic Wide straps- least likely to have padding bunch up

Best hardware: Phenix, then tie for all but the Innova and fade. Hardware clip snapped on each. Could just be a fluke but...

Straps that dig into the shoulders the most: Innova, Fade, Dynamic thin. Phenix straps come in behind them.

Best straps for larger people: Dynamic Wide straps

Best straps for girls: Voodoo (my has tested them all too and this her preference.

Springy-est or straps for those who like low riding bags: Brownbelt, then DGA, followed by Phenix. (Phenix is springy, but doesn't sit as low)

Best for a long day: Voodoo and Dynamic for a traditional feel, DGA or Brownbelt for springy feel.

Coolest feature: Fade with the rainfly, only straps with a truly unique feature

Best gel straps: Brownbelt

If I think of any other helpful information I'll post later.

I splurged and bought an Upper Park Rebel last year. I still use my DisCarrier and quads, and even my old Fade Crunch with the quads more often than I do the Rebel.

It's no knock on the Rebel, it's a really nice, well built bag. I just like the wide open top and the various pockets better on the DisCarrier.

Matter of fact, my 8+ year old Phenix quads are starting to fall apart. What's everyone using nowadays since Phenix is OOB?

Only quads I've tried are the DGA Gel Straps, maybe others are better. I always had issues with the bag bouncing off my lower back when I walked to the point it was uncomfortable. Maybe this was an issue where I didn't have them adjusted properly but I've never had that issue with a backpack style bag. It seems like the weight is distributed more evenly.

I bought an A-frame Grip a few years ago...was not comfortable to carry. Went back to my Mojo with Quad-Shocks, haven't looked back!

Well the ones I see people use are the Gel straps from DGA, an uncle had that for his Innova Competition bag and before that he used the straps with a DGA Elite Shield before a fire at his house. Now that uncle has the Innova Deluxe with a single strap. I have seen another person use with a fishing bag that has 2 spots for drinks on it yes he uses a fishing bag as it is bigger then a Innova deluxe/Discraft Tournament bag but smaller then or lighter then a Innova Competition with Innova straps on the bag, the bag has spots to hook on quad straps but uses Innova Quad Straps from his Innova Competition bag that is now where he keeps spare discs of molds he uses in his bag. Others I see using the Straps from Dynamic Discs though they are only trying to support the brand closest to where I live, using that brands stuff.

Do not get the Infinite brand as they are a bit small for larger people and have to be be worked in a bit to fit larger people.

Odd. The lack of a wide-open top was one of my main annoyances when I tried a backpack. I figured it was peculiar to me.

I prefer this too...it's why my main bag is a FADE Crunch. I use a UPD Shift for tournaments but definitely prefer the top opening of the old school bags.

The UPD Rebel is probably the most accessable as far as backpack bags go, but it's still not as open as the good ol' boxy tourney bags.

I carry 12-16 usually. At that number the Rebel is kind of overkill.
