    My Bab team bag went bust, and I'm lookingto either replace it with the same or upgrade to something else. I love the bag, but the zippers could be better, and it would be nice to have a shoe compartment. The size is just about perfect - it's compact but holds a ton of stuff and the backpack straps are comfortable and on the top which is key - which is why I don't like Wilson Bags.

    Any thoughts on the BB Combi? http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageBGVOLKL-BSEB6.html

    it's expensive, but looks like it could be pretty high quality.


    What about Vantage bags? Anyone have some experience and thoughts on that?

    yeah, thought about the aero line - but 6 pack's too small and the 12 too big - wish they did a 9 pack!

    How about the Head bags? They seem to offer a few different nines, straps on top. Or Yonex.

    Yeah I saw those on the TF website - I was always impressed with the quality when I had the previous 6 pack, but they are a little too loud for me...

    If you're into the graphics and colors these are def a great choice!

    I am using the 9 pack right now and I really like it. I wish it were a tad larger for my ever growing pile of crap. I will be getting the new 12 pack whenever TW gets them in. They look great IMHO.

    Becker bags are built a little more durable than Volkl bags, but they fray & rip in places Volkl bags don't. Volkls have always had zipper problems & rip apart at the seams whereas Becker bags tend to rip at the piping(?) that outlines the bag. Can't comment about the new series from either however.

    Great sticks, huh? I love em. I think I am going back to my BA/MT hybrid though. Have a couple reels of both I have to burn through.

    VERY helpful feedback - thanks!
    Surprising that an $80 bag is not made any more durable than a $30 one....I guess they come from the same factories anyways.

    ya, I bounced between full WC and WC/Iso Pro hybrids - nice to have the extra pop especially for doubles/volleys
