Just get the TW bag (9-pack)! It's economical and spacious and sturdy. I love it.

I would not buy a Wilson bag again. Mine does not seem to be very strong (it sort of 'caves in' on one side), and doesn't have many compartments at all.

I own a KFactor KPro Red 6 Pack. It's basically just two big compartments and one smaller side one, and a zip-lock bag. No small pockets to put things in. It does seem to be holding up quite well so far though.

I have owned nothing but Wilson for 25+ years. In that time, I have owned about 6 or 7 bags. Then this year I decided to buy a Head bag, since I finally switched to Head racquets. But let me tell you: this Head bag is the crappiest piece of luggage that I have ever owned. I unfortunately am going to have to do something I never thought that I would do: have a different brand of bag than the brand of racquets I use.

ok seeing as babolat and wilson are pretty close. what separates these two bags? why would you buy on over the other? and what does one bag have that the other doesn't?

IMO Babolat Bags are produced much sturdier than Wilson bags. (the only two that Ive used other then Volkl which I only had for a short time)

I JUST got the Babolat Aero 12 pack and am impressed. My last bag was the Head TourTeam Supercombi and before that I used Wilson red bags long before they had any thermo technology.

The Aero is by far the best made bag I have ever felt. I have the feeling that it will last quite a long time.

i think babolat makes better although wilson makes good bags but my wilson bag riped after 5 months :( but i may try the wimby federer bag soon although i just got a new babolat bag.

but i think babolat masks the best :)

i have had babolat, wilson, and head. i must say babolat is still holding up after 3 years, head is the poorest, but wilson isnt far behind.

Why is HEAD not getting any love ?? that brand NEW Orange bag is awsome looking not to mention it has thermoguard in it.

ok so it seems like to me the biggest problem with wilson bags is that it rips. i have had my wilson bag for 3 years now, the inside has ripped, but it has not completely fallen apart. from what i see the thermal paddings and moisture still work. have you guys had worse problems with you wilson bags? what do you think makes babolat design better?

I have a wilson Kfactor super 6 pro bag that I bought off the bay for about six months. great bag for the most part. Does everything that I need it to do, plus I like the zip-lock bag for wet clothes. First real tennis bag I've ever had.

Head makes the best bag. Look at the limited edition prestige bag. Great colors.

I always get compliments by beautiful women about my Kneissl 9 pack and the 6 pack. I can't believe it is not even on this list. I mean a lot of the bags that I see on the market are just flat out CHEESEY looking and they also look like something a clown or an astronaut from the 1950's would use...just awful looking and I can't believe people actually buy these things just because some pro is using it! You want a great looking bag buy the Kneissl....it is actually cool and refined looking. The only bad part is that it doesn't come with thermal insulation. I wished it did. But that is really not a big deal.

They are of high quality...I agree with that!
Example, this looks nice....

...although that orange accent is a little too bright and out there for my taste. It should have been black with red instead of black with orange.

As far as looks is concern I also think the Sergio Tacchini is stylish and refined.....

....Sergio Tacchini is a famous Italian brand known for it's great design. They make great looking sailing jackets....nautical style!






Prince was once own by the Benetton Group about 10-12 years ago....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benetton_Group

...and as some of you may know Benetton is a famous Italian fashion brand that also had a successful racing division....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benetton_Formula

The Prince bag that was designed by Benetton was in the same color scheme as the company's signature colors....blue & green....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Benetton_B_194_4841.JPG

And this was what the Prince Tour bags that all the ATP pros were given about 10-12 years looked like...

...Pretty clean and classy looking don't you think? It is like looking at a beautiful classic 356 Porsche Speedster....

...you guys get what I am trying to convey here?





The majority of the bags that I see these days on the market these days are just hideous looking. I mean who the hell is designing these crap? Most look like something a clown would carry around. These bags are actually nice looking....

You gotta have absolutely no taste at all to waste your money on something that looks like that.

im in possession of the wilson kpro super six fed edition 2007- large compartments enabling me to fit my racquets, change of clothes, shoes.

The downside to this bag is that it requires smaller/dividing compartments to store the small essentials ur mobile phone and wallet neatly instead of "floating" aroun in the side pocket.

here's my feedback on bags having gone through a bunch of them. the best bag for your purposes depends on various factors including how much you want to spend; how much (and type of) stuff carry around; size, etc. i carry a ton of stuff in my bags so i need something larger and sturdy.

1. wilson - i hate them! there are no small pockets so it's impossible to find anything small inside like keys, phone, wallet, etc. their cheap bags (staff, open) don't last. the higher end bags are heavy and the shiney vinyl doesn't age well if you store in cars or scratch them in and out of lockers (rips the piping too). the k-tour line is probably the best compromise.

2. head - i like them because they are lightweight, relatively affordable and have lots of organization (smaller outside pockets, lots of inside pouches) but they are not durable because of the lightweight material and construction. radicals and extremes need reinforcement the carrying handle as they alway rip there; team is better but has less organization pockets and inner pouches.

3. babolat - imho, they're overpriced most of the line is similar to the head team bags. however, the aero bag get my vote as the best all around bag for organization and sturdiness. i don't use an aero because they don't have a 9 pack and the hard plastic sides of the 12 pack don't fit inside my locker.

i'm currently using a dunlop aerogel 10 pack and it's holding up well. it doesn't have as many organization pouches as head (but way more than wilson). i'm doing back to using head in the summer; their radical pro bag has a new handle design that is sewn into the piping for additional strength.

I think Babolat are the ones that holds up the best, from your wear and tear. I had a Wilson bag, ripped. Head, felt way too flimsy. Dane Cook "Felt like I had a diaper of goodies"
