Racquet Bags
 
What do you guys do for bags? I'm looking at these:

1. Head Elite Series 9 Pack Supercombi Bag
2. Head Elite Series 6 Pack Combi Bag
3. Babolat Aero Line Black/Yellow 9-Pack Bag
4. Babolat Team Line Blue 9 Pack

It would most likely hold 2 Pure Storms and 1 RadMP, shoes, towel, clothes, balls, notebook, hats, socks, deodorant, phone, energy bars.

It would also double as a suitcase in the summer.

What do you think would be more suitable? I like that option 1 has a divider in one of the compartments, but I'm not sure if it would be too big compared to option 2. Option 3 also works because of the rigid shell.

What are your opinions? thanks :)

I suggest looking into the new Head Tour Team Blue 6 pack bag. Its pretty big for a 6 pack. Only $39.99. WITH a CCT compartment.

If you are going to get the babolat team line 9 pack get the 12 pack trust me. I own one and its really good looking and all but its a little too small. I was going to get the 9 pack but i found that it was too small. Even the 12 pack is small for an average 12 pack. youre going to find that you could only fit a few things than other 12 packs. I cant put more than 2 racquets on the climacool technology compartment because it will just squish my racquets other than that great bag

And since you use babolat use a babolat bag too match the brand but its you choice if you would want a different bag or not

does the 9 pack have 2 main compartments or three? and do you find the 12 pack to be too gigantic on your back while carrying it? thanks

Its a 2 compartment and the 12 is a 3 compartment. The 12 does not look big on my back its just the right size.

2ManyAces 01-15-2013 05:39 PM

bump. I read some reviews that the 12 pack babolat's zippers open when you grab the straps. is this true?

I'm assuming you mean when you don't zip up fully, and things inside the bag start pushing the zippers down? That's just mass and gravity at work.

However, the zippers on my Babolat Aero 12pack (bright-***** yellow one) aren't the smoothest.

Ok thanks. do you like the aero 12 pack? I'm also considering that. I just don't know if it would be too big.

I wanted a 9pack with 3 main compartments but I'm not able to find something like it

I like the 12 pack because it has good (considered to be unique) features:
- 2 insulated compartment (though more and more bags are offering that now)
- Portable water cooler
- It's got hard shell so it doesn't collapse.

What I don't like:
- It's a SMALL 12pack. Honestly, I think some of the 9 packs out there are as big as this 12pack. Babolat advertise it as a 12pack, but fitting 4 frames in those insulated compartment requires some Tetris skills, and I use Tour 90's.
- Not much organization here. It's a bag with 4 big compartments. So things be jiggling.

That's pretty accurate, especially for the bags prior to 2012.

2ManyAces 01-16-2013 05:38 PM

what do you think about the Babolat Team Line Blue 9 Pack? that's what I'm learning towards at the moment. I will also consider the aero 12 too though. I just feel like it would be too big.

Francis27 01-16-2013 06:18 PM

The aero 12 is actually much bigger than the team line 12 which i dont really like. So stick with the team line 9 pack. Just remember that it might be a little small for a 9 pack.

Francis27 01-16-2013 06:30 PM

Here i took some pics of my 12 pack team line. Only the 12 pack comes with the climacool compartment (Only on one side) And the 12 comes with a tiny compartment thats ventilated to put wet clothes in. And it comes with a shoe bag. It kinds looks big in the picture but it actually looks small in person. And sorry for the big pics

I've used the speed monstercombi & prestige monstercombis. The 2012 head bags are a bit on the small side of "super" or "monster" combi bags. Currently using the 2012 djokovic monstercombi and I travel a lot for university tennis so it doubles as my suitcase. I fit about what you put in there and then some. It's definitely bulging like a boss but it holds up. A normal head 6pack back probably will not be big enough for you.

2ManyAces 01-18-2013 06:09 PM

I ended up going with the 9. It's a good size and is made well I think. Thanks guys
