And they're more comfortable and detail oriented than any other DG pack I've ever seen. I think that is important for a pack you are going to carry different ways (one shoulder two shoulders, by the grab handle) and you're going to pick up and put down 50+ times per round.

But yeah, spendy. And the best investment I have made in DG (except for a lesson).
Made in the USA and great customer service goes a long way! That makes sense. Hopefully I'll run into someone on the course with this bag so I can check it out.

My ULA and MLD bags are more expensive than Osprey, once again,not commodity. Niche market, hand made. With great service.

There's a backpacking comparison. Same applies

Thanks haier2, great suggestion. I typically don't carry a completely full main compartment and substituting the drink insert as a disc divider worked well today

Definitely, glad other folks are taking advantage of this layout. I do wonder if this was an intended function, as they seem to have thought of everything.

I just got my 2018 Sexton Octothorpe. It was kind of an impulse buy. I love the look and the way it feels on my back. I researched quite a bit but I didn't realize that there isn't any rails or reinforcement on the bottom of the bag. I'm excited to use the bag but a little bummed that the bottom isn't even as sturdy as the $80 hero pack. I NEVER drag my bag but after 100's of rounds i wore holes on edges of a few different bags over the years. I will probably be adding the skid protectors to bottom myself. Just wondering if anybody has worn holes in the bottom?

They are purposely made that way to add to the bags longevity. Adding rails to the bottom creates weak points that will wear quicker over time versus not having anything on the bottom except heavy duty fabric

I beat the crap out of mine and it still looked "like new" two years in. In fact, it has a new owner now (the bag is just too big for my needs).

Use it and abuse it. It's an amazing bag. Levi and crew are always helpful.

Here's hoping what I call the "Half Pound" will come out as expected this summer for those of who don't carry 30 discs.

I do have some concerns about their expanded operation affecting quality. I have not seen any 2018's so I really cannot judge for myself.

I have a piece of foam to eat up space and it weighs nothing. I keep the foam in a big zip lock so it doesn’t degrade and end up in bits at the bottom of my bag. I stick it on the same side as my drink to help distribute weight.

Gorilla Boy sells some nice dividers that you might try. The foam is a good idea, too.

I used an old Nutsac (without the strap) as a means of partitioning my old Octothorpe. Weight was certainly an issue but it never bothered me.

Does anyone put the insert in the main compartment? Does it fit? Sometime I don’t take a full load of discs out and I’m thinking the insert could take up space so the discs don’t slide around.
