    Been using Tecnifibre bags that fit like a glove but are too expensive. Where can I find bags approx 12"W x 32"L? Anyone have a less expensive supplier?

    Thanks/Don

    Agree!!!
    but mostly customers think it's more professional, even though they will through out it immediately.

    Thank you for your opinion.

    In truth, if I'm dropping a racquet off and I know that they're going to hit immediately, I no longer give a poly bag for this reason. However, if I've strung 2-3 sticks for them, I'll use them. Quick way to know which is the freshest racquet.

    from the same seller 12x36 1 mil, 100 pcs is $14.60+ $3.50 shipping. ~ 18 cent a bag

    Bay item 110894851138.
    Seller described the item as uline 2mm and about $26 shipped for 100 bags.
    Uline price is 1000 for $130 plus shipping. If you live near their warehouse, you can pick it up for free. Many bay sellers resells uline products in small quantities.

    i think they are trashy, but they are quite american and i understand the need for some to fulfill their quota.

    edit: they do make good trash bags once torn off that slick frame. recycle.

    Topspin101, what kind of price are you looking for? You said you wanted something less expensive than the Technifibre, but I'm not familiar with their cost.

    I have a supplier. The bags I use are:
    14 x 36
    1.5 Mil
    50 bags in a roll

    Email me if you like: sstchur(at)yahoo(dot)com
