View Full Version : Wilson or US Open bag?

08-24-2006, 06:47 PM
Should I go with the Wilson Pro Tour 4 bag w/ thermoguard 3 raquet compartment for $25 or the US OPEN series bag for $30 that holds 6-8 raquets. I only have two raquets, but I could carry my sisters raquet, and my dads two. Is thermoguard really that important?

Thermoguard is a good idea - it helps protect the strings from extreme tempatures. How much it helps can be debated...

I have a sister - I would never carry her rackets. Pick the bag that is best for you...

Hey I'm looking for a bag myself but I dont want to be a noob and start a whole thread just for that.

Anyone can recomend something that is pretty small, light and looks allright to hold at least 1-2 racquets and has a few pockets for stuff like some extra balls, cell phone, some snacks etc... I dont want it to look cheesy and huge...
I like the nikes cause well THEY NIKE, (lol I like nike stuff) but their colors are ughhhh.

I love the design and color of this wilson
But my racquet is prince lol.

This one also looks sexy http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageBGWILSON-TBLBP.html
but are these backpack bags any good? I mean the racquet is halfway outside (is it secure? never seen one with my own eyes)

as for the bags I think the usopen one he talking about is

and the wilson is http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageBGWILSON-TOUR43.html

but thats my guess.

The us open bag is very nice...! Im def liking that one.... I like you, dont see the point in using a backpack, I've got plenty of backpacks that i could use instead

sorry for not being more descriptive. both bags i am referring to are from tennis warehouse. Now I am deciding from the US OPEN bag i was talking about- http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageBGWILSON-USOGY6CL.html

OR the 3 racquet Wilson Tour 4 or the 6 Wilson Tour 4.
Does Thermoguard really do a good job protecting strings? (currently, I am ordering like 7 different packs of strings along with the tennis bag) Or is the thermoguard feature more of a peace of mind than anything else?

I don't own this bag, but I kind of like this KSwiss Ascendor 6 Pack Bag setup with the external pockets:


Not as crazy about the looks as much as I like the potentional functionality of the bag.

But personally, I just started using the Wilson Tour 6 Pack and don't think I'll be switching anytime soon.
