Recommended bags for few rackets, but space for plenty else
I'm looking for a new bag (preferably under £50), quite a spacious one. Whatever site I try (UK) all the specs point to how many rackets you can fit in it: "Can hold up to SIX rackets...ermahgerrrd, TEN rackets!"
I do not care. I'm an amateur, I play with one, and have one spare in case strings snap. What I am after is space for shoes, clothes, towel, food etc, all of which I find useful especially on tournament days, but I do have to cram it all into the space remaining once my 38 rackets have been taken care of.
Just after value for money, i.e. one tailored to what I believe is what most players would find useful.
Are you looking specifically for a badminton multi racquet bag?
You need space for three racquets
How about a bag that is simply an elongated shorts bag? Rather similar to the old tennis bags. They can only be slung around one shoulder rather than the present badminton bags which get carried like a backpack.
I use one. It is made by adidas but honestly, it can be any brand. Not so fashionable but I am more after something that is more practical for me rather than having a Yonex/Lining/Victor etc
If you're after a bag with a dedicated rackets compartment and space for 'tournament days' (for me 4x shirts, 1x shorts, 1x socks, clothes and shower kit, 2x sweat towels, 2x shoes, food, towel grip, powder, camera, etc..)
...then you may need to extend your budget a tad. I currently use a 9 racket Yonex 'Pro' series bag (9229EX) and would ideally like something even bigger.
Many thanks for your replies. I've just found a Wilson tour duffle bag, for far cheaper than I'd expected to pay. There's a compartment for two rackets, wet compartment for all the sweat with clothes on it, and plenty room for everything else. Whoever else is interested this is cheap...it may be going off the product line or something
i too have been looking for a replacement. this above mentioned one would do me nicely.
however, bcos i live half way around the other side of the globe, the postage cost more than
the item itself. [sigh].
