Lightning
Tour Special Bag

This is a great bag for the money. I only paid $13. If you are a beginner, which I am. I have about 10 discs and I ususally only carry 8 or so. I agree with the other review that the fabric bottom is the biggest annoyance I had. I got ariound that by cutting a small piece of plastic to put in the bottom of the bag. In the future, I plann to put a piece of plywood in the bottom with a few rubber feet on the bottom. The front putter pocket is also annoying in my opinion. I use it for my wallet and keys etc. It is hard to try to pull your putter out. Those are my two complaints. Overall I would recommend this bag to a beginner. It seems very durable, has a sweet drink holder, a padded shoulder strap, a divider, and an extra outside pocket and for $13-$18 you can't beat the price.<

I have found the lightning tour special bag to be an excellent bag for a player who carries 8-14 discs. The inside pocket of the bag snugly holds 12 discs, and the two outside pockets can hold one each. The inside has one divider to separate your drivers and mid-range/utility discs, or however you prefer to separate them. The drink holder is larger than it looks, and can easily hold large bottles, while being able to hold smaller ones in with the tie-string. The bag is also fairly durable, too. The thing that amazed me about this bag was that it is not big or bulky, but is actually comfortable to wear. I got this bag for $15, which has been an ecxellent deal for the amount of use I've gotten out of it.

This is a great bag if your disc selection is small. I can hold about a dozen discs in it with no problem. It seems to be pretty durable and the drink holder and outside pockets are nice. My only complaint about this bag is that the bottom is not "solid". It is just a fabric bottom, which makes the bag have a tendancy to fall sideways when you set it down, especially if you don't set it on even ground. If you play on a course with lots of hills and inclines, you might want to consider another bag.

My Review:
The Lightning Tour Special Bag is an excellent choice for the recreational or beginner to intermediate player. It features an attached shoulder strap with adjustable pad, a drink holder with tie top that can easily hold a 32oz gatorade, an external putter pocket and an external medium-sized zippered pocket. Inside there is a single divider separating the bag in the middle. Internally the bag can hold 8-12 discs depending upon dome height and rim depth of the discs. The material is the same as on the Prostyle bag and fairly durable. At a price of around $18, the Tour Special is the lowest-priced bag in its class and should have the capcity and features for many players.
