Default catalyst mods.

Here are some things I have noticed and made for my wifes' catalyst bag.

First I took some 2" wide sticker type Velcro and cut some 9" strips.
I put them sticky back to back, with a 3/4" offset.
(I used some electrical tape to cover the offset sticky)
I then put it in the back of the bag where the GGIS mounts.
Hanging it down a little, making it so I can lower the mounting spot about 2" for the GGIS.

Default putting in the box

I also noticed that the Velcro on the box is about 1" closer together than the corresponding Velcro on the inside of the sleeve that it mounts in.
So when you put the box in, you need to make sure the sleeve material is tight under the box (do not line up the velcro) or it will make the sleeve shorter than it really is.

These things will make the GGIS as deep as you can, making it easier to close
plus it will make a steeper angle, to help keep the discs in when open
also putting the discs in upside down will make it a lot easier to get out

Default stool storage

Because I don't like the idea of having the stool in a pocket.
I came up with this quick and easy way to store the stool in one of the water bottle holders.

Using the Nite ize flexible gear ties to hold it in.

Note where i put the wire tie through the nylon webbing, instead of the the plastic D - ring.

This reduces the amount of flopping around, reducing the stress on the stitches.

I also tossed a couple of the shorter ones on the zipper pulls so they don't get in the way of the flap for the GGIS.

Any plans to utilize the upper storage dead space area?

still thinking about how/what would be the easiest/best way to access it, and to keep stuff from falling down the gaps on the sides.

so for now she is just working around it.
by using a drink holder for her stool, that keeps the other big pocket free for stuff.

but i am still often thinking about it

i was thinking you could enlarge the top pocket, making it go towards the back (straps)
turn it inside out, then cut it, sew on the extension, then just put some stitches through the side pockets and by the straps to hold it up.

or better yet, make or find something pre-made you could adapt, a rectangular shaped cube, secure/hold it up the same way as above
accessing it through one of the side pockets with a L or U shaped zipper

You could also just build a floor that would velcro to all four sides. Make sure the sides fold up and stuff won't fall out even if the corners have little holes. Make the velcro an inch thick or so.

has anyone disassembled their bag yet?
(remove the side stiffener inserts behind the velcro)
i am just wondering how hard it is to turn inside out
to access the dead space up through the area where the GGIS sticks into the bag

Default The "Go Get It Slot"

Seems like a few people are wrestling with the GGIS.

Some of the bags have showed up with the insert box not correctly installed, and/or people have removed it and didn't pay close attention when they did.

Here is a pic of what it should look like when installed correctly.

It should sit down inside, below the lip of the opening.

This way you can put 1 putter sized disc into, and 1 putter sized disc on top of, the insert box.
There is also still room to tuck the flap into the bottom slot, getting it out of the way of the main compartment if you like.
