yes, head does prevail with the quality of bags, still, I go for the same brand!
For those of us not hung up on particular tennis brands or those who delight in the obscure, I bring you the Kawasaki 6 Pack...
An extremely robust piece of luggage engineering featuring 1x Thermo section, 2x shoe/wet gear tunnels, quick grab handle (sturdy rope-thickness) and beefy adjustable backpack straps. 10/10, two thumbs up...
That's a sweet looking bag. Where abouts in Sydney are you?
Northern beaches mate. Just wondering because there's a few guys on here I've found from the Northern beaches. One even goes to my school I didn't know about... got him a job coaching with me haha.
Good to hear there's more than 4.
Even with gold, I would rock with that bag!!
Has anyone else had problems with the straps on this bag? I've had this bag for about 8 months, and the straps are starting to pull apart at the stitches. I'm planning on replacing it within the next few months, but have any of you who have had this bag had the same problem as me?
do u think having four rackets is a bit little for this bag?
there at least 5 in the pic :/
i know but i only have 4 and im planning on buying one
i was just wondering if this bag is too much or 4 rackets
My 4 new Volkl PB8's. Going to start the customization soon
not the exact same bag. I have Head YT Extreme Combi and the straps and also screeching when i walk with it on my back.
Should be fine. My mate has supercombi and he has 4 sometimes 5.
my highschool coach has these rackets
What kind of player is he, do you k now what strings he uses?
Well idk what "kind" of player he is exactly. He's about45 and was in the hall of fame for the dlll school he went to. When I hit with him he can just work me left and right but he likes to attack too . I think he uses prince lightning
Sounds like a classic all court player.
Nice "material" besides your right foot.
Haha, thanks dude! I need my feet replacing, there a mess right now, with TW would stock a new left foot!
Does anyone have this Dunlop backpack bag?
I am assuming it can fit two rackets with covers? Can it accommodate a third?
How much else can it carry aside from 2 or 3 rackets?
i just made a thread on this bag last week, almost noone responded to it...... I can carry 3 rackets with/o covers in it i haven't tried to find out how many it can hold with covers. I think it could hold a racket or two more than i have in it. It does not have a lot of pockets. The bottle pockets on the sides are a little small but i love mine. You can also fit alot in the main compartment(not where you put the rackets.)
Thanks for the review!
I am planning on carrying two rackets (main racket plus a backup) but would like to be able to carry a third on a few occasions. So it sounds like the dunlop backpack qualifies.
Basically, I'm looking for a starter bag so I don't have to lug around a racket in my hand all the time to and from the courts.
Their backpacks look quite nice too. Too bad I don't like their rackets.
Question: how many of you own more than a single bag?
I think I'll eventually own at least two: a backpack when I only want to bring a couple of rackets, and a 6 pack bag, when I want to bring additional rackets to play with friends. And a third bag, simply because I enjoy the esthetics of it.
How many bags do you/will you own?
Here is the bag I was referring to above. Striking....
I own a Djokovic youtek backpack and a youtek extreme combi. If that counts as two.
I bought the dunlop backpack and when I inspected it, I wasn't too thrilled with it.
It's basically a small, generic backpack with some flashy dunlop logos and colors on it.
In addition, one of the zippers is defective.
I really wanted to like this bag, but would gladly consider other brands for better value and function.
The Wilson ones are pretty nice, the whole top unzips so it is easy to load, and the padding on the back is nice.
I can put 3 racquets in the racquet section, but my frames are really thin, so I think most would only be able to fit two.
How thin? 20mm?
K90, so I think 18mm?
If cost were no object, this baby would be mine, the Prince 12 racquet bag:
It has amazing features:
1. thermal lining for your rackets (which may or may not be effective, but hey, it sounds cool ),
2. back pack straps on the bottom of the bag, away from the grab handle
3. a separate section for drinks (again, thermal lined)
4. another separate middle section
5. separate shoe bag
Just a cool look to it. But, cost is an object...
Ask $1 to each of your friend + family member + colleague, for sure you know 90 people, if you get it, post picture.
Here's my selection, an Adidas bag:
It's got a bunch of nifty pockets and plus it's really big.
There are some reviews which point out durability issues. Anyone have this bag? I'm getting tired of shopping and this one seems to have most all the features I want (size plus organization). Thermo guard would be nice, but it seems the white color would be just as good as a dark bag with thermoguard? lol.
i know a pro with that bag, but the glossy kind. pretty nice.
Nice bags you got there, heres mine.
For some reason, I am finding tennis bags to be very cool. I have two of them now, and have two more on order.
a buddy gave me a prince tour team 12 pack for free/nada/zilch/zero. it's the slightly older version.
it's a pretty cool bag except it's just a monster. the bigger the bag, the more crap one will carry. i am proving it.
i remember a day when i could walk onto the court with 2 rackets, a towel and a can of balls. i'd open the balls, then fill the can with water and get on with it.
Nice bags you got there, heres mine.
Mine didnt work so i edited it
interesting!, post pics of all of them...
BTW you only carry one at the time, right?
Keep trying man
Don't even encourage me man! I've got two in my possession, but I've got two more in my "want" box, just in case.
And yeah, Rafa just walked off with two bags: a tennis and training bag, so why not?
And he just jammed his rackets in there; he's a pro so those two hundred dollar rackets come free of charge...
hey liam, why can't i see a picture in your post???
In addition to the prince, here's another pro bag I really like:
I think the only features it may be lacking are a shoe compartment and shoulder strap.
I would find it hard to justify a $100 price tag for either however, as I'm a recreational player (soon to be tournament player?).
I recently bought a bag and a new racquet to go with it.
or did you buy a racket and bought a bag to go with it...
does anyone have pictures of this tennis bag? preferably the 12-pack
I found it on the bay and I am wondering what the bag features in terms of pockets and thermal protection...
looking into the bag for travel reasons...
I just ordered the Wilson ECO TOUR bk/Gold 6 Pack
Along with my new BLX Tour 90s.
edit: ah, I got ahead of myself. Enjoy the bag!
I just barley ordered it from TW yesterday.
I plan to edit my post with a review.
my adidas bag
I bought it from fleab@y for 45 dollars and I LOVE my bag. I feel so cool when I walk out on the court with it. I know I have everything I need to win and I won't lose a point due to being unprepared.
This is my bag with my two racquets.
This is my miscellaneous equipment. Prescription goggles, Bandannas, Headbands and Wristbands. All SORTS of junk.
