A buddy of mine, well he plays Grandmasters and I'm 19, used to pull a cart. But quit when he started using the Ranger Bag. He said he doesn't need to anymore.

Rangers look great and carry well but their bottoms are garbage. Watch the corners for shredding. My buddy's started tearing after 4 months. The feet aren't the best and the bottom fabric isn't attached to the frame.

I use a grip. My only gripe is that it tends to fall over. You begin to learn the angles that it need to be laid to prevent toppling but quality, comfort and value are top notch with a grip.

I have a grip and a ranger I used the grip as my main bag and the ranger for glow I like the top pocket on the ranger for glow rounds because I can fit a large jacket, my grip can barely hold a wind breaker. but I will say that is the only reason I like the ranger and in general prefer the grip by quite a bit just and it is built like a tank compared to the ranger, wish I could fit a good size jacket and it would be the perfect bag.

jcassidy: I use the big Prodiscus bag, I've had it for almost a year and the only thing wrong is that its dirty and I haven't washed it. I would reccomend it to anybody, but the OP wanted something that wasn't too big and heavy. And the Prodiscus is a big heavy bag. But again, I'm 19 and 6'4" so I'll be okay.

I'll recommend a Grip or an Ergo2. I tried the Mahal, but didn't really like it. Replaced it with a Grip and used that for the last year. Really like the Grip, but recently decided to try the Ergo2 mostly out of curiosity. I just used the Ergo for a four round tournament this weekend, and really liked it. I think it might be a little more comfortable than my Grip and seems like it is going to hold up for the long run.

You'll probably be happy with any of the three bags I mentioned. Plus they're pretty easy to sell if you want to try out a different one.

Now I know I'm going to get a lot of this is my bag or whatever and that's fine but try to keep in mind the things I'm about to put out there as what I care the most about.

#1 - Comfort and weight - I have back issues so my main concern is not only the comfort of the bag but the weight. I don't carry all that many discs usually and I don't put a bunch of stuff in my bag. I want lightweight and comfy more than anything. I wish more companies would put out there the exact weight of their bags.

#2 - Quality - I'm rough on my **** so I want it to last and be able to handle being dropped, thrown around and whatever else I feel like doing to it.

#3 - I carry at the extreme maximum for some competition scenarios 19 discs which includes two putters that would presumably go in the putter pocket. So I only need a bag that carries at most 17 in the main compartment. However on the regular I only carry about 12 discs or even less depending on the course so the ability of the bag to carry less discs and not have them jumble all around is key.

#4 - Again I don't carry a bunch of crap with me. I'll usually have a couple towels, a mini, one slender water bottle, some pencils/sharpie, my phone/keys and possibly an umbrella. I don't use a stool or have a bunch of other stuff I want to cram in there so a ton of storage isn't really my concern.
If I hadn't found a good deal on a used Revo and quads I would still be using the bag in this thread:

I too have a bad back and the only bag that truly fits your qualifications is the Catalyst. I would be more than happy to give you a full review once mine gets here. Salient used top notch tough materials and it is the perfect size that you're looking for.

This is your answer.

How do you know this? You've never even seen the bag with your own eyes.

You're going to vouch for its quality and durability sight unseen?

he is making a reasonable assumption based on the in depth video he has seen on the catalyst and its hard to argue the bag being made out of 1000D Cordura, just like the grip is and I agree. That is why several are suggesting he wait for the customer reviews. One thing to add, Salient will have a full stock of bags even after pre orders are shipped out, so should new decide to wait to see customer reviews and then decide he wants it, he won't be waiting long at all to get it.
