    Hello,
    Unfortunately "Bag" seems to be too common of a word for the search machine. Has anyone had experience w/

    Fila Corte Racquet 8 Pack Bag,
    Yonex Tournament Series 6 Pack Bag,
    Adidas Tour Racquet 6-Pack Bag,
    or Tecnifibre Odyssey 6 Pack Tennis Bag

    I carry 2-3 racquets; 2-3 shirts, plus the usual gear (shock absorbers, grips, string, etc); A shoe compartment might be useful, but isn't 100% essential.

    Appreciate any info and opinions. Durability and practicality are important.
    I play w/ Yonex SRD Tour, and am reluctant to use another racquet company's bag. I'm not sponsored or anything, but want to be congruent.

    If you have 3 racquets definetly don't get anything above a 6 pack. You should probably consider the NIke 3 pack or 6 pack (if you get more racquets) and the Adidas bag. The Lotto bag also looks good.

    Thank you for the replies so far.

    The Gelabag looks awesome, although it is 2 or 3 times more expensive than the others. I'm not sure if the bag should cost more than the racquets it's carrying ;)

    One other question/concern; as far as domestic air travel, I'd like to check the bag in as a carry on; has anyone had difficulty getting the 6-racquet bags on board?

    I have the Technifibre 6-pack and like it a lot.
    seems to be well made
    I esp. like the shoe/wet comparment and the strap setup.
    Even has a small cell-phone pocket on one of the straps.
    only a couple of minor complaints: the side pocket is a bit small, compartments aren't padded (which might be an issue if u are traveling w/ it) and the overall shape is a tad "boxy" for my tastes.

    Roforot,

    Should not be a problem as long as that's all you carry on. I flew to Japan with a 12 pack as carry on. No problems for me and fit well into overhead compartments (this is assuming you get on before they are full, which is always my case). :eek:
