Default Ready to Fish bag from Amazon for $20. Anyone try?

When searching for tackle bags on Amazon this is the first one that comes up. Its only $20. Tried searching the forum but didnt see it mentioned.

Ive never attempted a DIY bag before. Do you DIY pros think this bag has any potential as a disc golf bag?

Then here are two youtube videos that give you sort of a tour of the bag.

It seems to have the room in the main compartment for a frame and discs.

I would want to keep the top flap open while being able to carry it, you would have to improvise there for sure.

I think maybe I posted this in the wrong place. Didnt realize this is talking more about the discs in peoples bags.

That top flap seems like it would be able to tuck under the inside in the back. Trying to decide whether to return the Fade Lite (awful color choices) and try this.

I wonder how sturdy it is. Maybe it wouldnt need framed? Just use those divers it comes with and expand them as you get more discs. My concern would be the putter pocket. Is that front part deep enough.

Waterproof pouch? 18x14x10"? $20? As long as the thing isn't made of cheesecloth, tears and frustration, could be worth a stab.

I just got the Fade Crunch Box in Pumpkin and the thing looks nothing like the sales picture, it's more of a flourescent road paint orange. The company offered to take it back but I didn't want to be without a bag for a week or more and have to pay shipping back to them etc. Other than the color the bag works great and is a good deal for the money. (Amazon $28.95 shipped)

For 10-12 disc capacity, you aren't carrying that much weight, so you can be more flexible.

I wouldn't want to carry a large bag with a single over the shoulder strap.
IMO - if you have 15+ discs and other stuff to carry, either quad straps or a backpack (whichever style you prefer) make sense to distrbute the weight more evenly. I doubt the bag in the OP is equipped for quad straps and I wouldn't want to modify it to accommodate them since the points where you attach them to the bag would be subject to the most stress and tension.

For larger bags, I would recommend going with something designed to be used with quad style straps, or a backpack of some sort. You want something that's designed to handle stress at those points or it's not going to last, or worse, come apart when you least expect it.

just my $0.02 worth
