I made the "mistake" to buy my Octo in mostly white ( Big Jerm one ) hard to clean that.

I don´t play in the rain that often, but i Do play when the ground is wet. .perfectly fine weather today but lot´s of dew on the ground. . so the discs and the bottom part of the bag get´s wet. .
It would be nice to have a "bottom rainfly" for the Pound bags. . the ONLY thing i like more on the Grip bags is that the bottom don´t get as dirty as it does on the Pound

I can tell you from experience that the electric blue will fade a good bit in the first year.

I was looking at some crazy colors too, but as you can see from my pic, I lost nerve and went boring. I'm happy with my decision, but part of me wishes I'd gone a little bolder.

Victor, had to google Goku, but looks like a great color scheme! Can't wait to see pics!

I also use the Shift as my dedicated rainy day bag.

Hmm so my crazy electric blue one might not be a good idea? ( the other one is just my thoughts on a Haul )

it will fade a bit, but it won't like completely wash out the color. It just won't be as bold after the first full season (if you play as much as I do). That color combo is pretty good!

Finally got my Carlton in! 1 round already this morning, and I'm pretty much in love with this bag. Storage/disc capacity is very versatile. I carry 16 (normal loadout) but could easily go up to 24. The center storage pocket is so well thought out. Just wish 1 side didn't have to velcro down to make the valuables pocket. Seeing the discs in the normal storage and getting them out really isn't as difficult as made out to be. I easily have 7 drivers and 5 mids that fit comfortably, and can get them all out reasonably, even the ones near the center that are under the putters. Haven't loaded a water bladder in but will when it gets hotter.

Don't see a reason for me to ever buy a new bag at this point. I've tried about all of them, and this is the best of all worlds in my opinion.

Totally agree!

The link to the bag isn't working for me. Got another link? Would love to see how it turned out.

I'd have to upload to an alternate source unless there's a way to directly upload here
