    Hi, does anyone have any experience with the Head Tour Team '06 or Head ATP Series bags? Are they any good? Durable?

    And does anyone know when Head will be releasing new bags since I kinda dislike the shape of the bags and would prefer one shaped like a Wilson Tour 4 bag, except that it would be a Head one.

    I have the tour team combi and it's great but there are some bad things like it keeps folding all the time and because it is pretty narrow it's not comfortable to carry it backpack style as the wilson tour.

    Yeah it looks pretty narrow, though that could be the angle of the picture taken. I wouldnt mind if it were as narrow as the Head Performance Combi 6-Pack Bag but if its like between that and a 3-Pack bag it´d kinda suck.

    Link to the performance bag: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageBGHEAD-HPERMB6.html

    Do you think that these 2 bags are the same in size/shape?

    I have the tour team combi, and yes, it's not as comfortable as that wilson one, but it depends on what you have in it. if you have 2-3 racquets, towel, shirts, balls, grips in the other large compartment and the smaller ones, it's actually quite fine.

    Bringing this back to life again. Would this bag be able to fit all these into it:

    Shoes
    2-3 racquets
    Few overgrips
    2 Shirts
    Socks
    2 Shorts
    Water
    Snacks
    1-2 Ball cans
    Towel
    A thin jacket?

    Also, does anyone know when head are going to come out with new bags? I really like to looks of this one but the 6-pack seems so narrow while the 12-pack (supercombi) is enourmous... No Tour Team 9-pack bag...

    Hi Janne,

    I just purchased that bag for my wife. She likes it very much.

    She carries in it two racquets, clothes, keys, cellphone, small towel, shoes, and her knee brace (from playing tons of competitive volleyball tourneys before taking up tennis seriously).

    Thanks,
    eagle

    I have the Tour Team 6pack bag, and I like it a lot. 5 racquets, balls, grips, lead tape, some clothes etc all fits comfortably.

    Thanks eagle and BigServer1! BTW, could you post some pictures of your bag when it has all those things in it, BigServer1?

    I'll try, but I don't have a digital cam, so it could be tough. I will tell you though, I haven't had any problems with zipping it up when it's full. There are two major racquet pouches (one with climate control technology- which may or may not work;) ) and two smaller pouches on the other side of the bag. What I usually do is three racquets in the CCT pouch, two in the other pouch with shorts and a tshirt in there too. Then I put my cans of balls, grips etc in the larger of the smaller pouches (if that makes sense), with a drink in the smallest pouch. I hope that in the abscence of pics, this description helps.

    I have the Head Team Tour 06 bag, In my opinion it sucks, the bag is really cheaply made, and is falling apart after no time. Maybe I got a bum bag, but I just ordered a dunlop bag to replace it, and it seems much more sturdily built.
