Default Birdie Bag, DD Dirt Bag, Chuckers chalk, Or a Bowling Grip Powder Bag

I use a refillable chalk ball that is kept inside of a climbing bag. The bag keeps it relatively clean, if you apply too much though, a bunch will come off your hand and into the air. I also have a birdie bag, but that's even messier and requires you to keep it in a plastic bag. I also think the chalk ball gives me better grip.

It may just be my baseball background but I prefer a normal rosin bag you can find at any sporting goods store.

I use a birdie bag and I keep it in a plastic flyfishing lure box that I bought. It's completely sealed and the lid has a snap closure that makes it really easy to use. You can close it and lock the lid down one handed.

I made my own grip bag using ground up corn. Works really well for me. I also have a regular birdie bag and have tried rosin. Rosin is too sticky, I prefer the slippery feel of the wood dust in a birdie bag, or now, the dust and powder from my corn bag. For storage, I use a small bag I made, similar to what rock climbers keep their chalk in to hang on the side of my bag.

Used to use a birdie bag, and then i got some rosen baggs 2/$5 on ebay. They're pretty much the exact same thing. I too have a small climbing bag hooked to my bag to hold it in. I've seen people put baking soda/Baby power/Saw dust in an old sock...pretty much the same thing.

+3 for Rosin, cheap and readily available. Some say there is too much grip but I have never felt that way. It gets mostly used during hot rounds or when the dew is out in the morning. One thing I like to do is rub the bag along the rim of the disc but I feel this could be against the rules?

I've do it too and wondered if during a sanctioned round it would be illegal.

Do people use dirt/birdie bags in rain?

I'm having huge difficulties with the grip in the rain and been wondering if a birdie bag would help. I do carry a bunch of towels with me, but there's always some moisture that makes the discs slippery for me.

If you do use one in the rain, how do you keep it dry? Put it in the bag (and a minigrip bag) after each shot?
