Well according to UPS our first order of NutSacs is supposed to arrive tomorrow at some point. We’ll have all 5 colours of NutSac in stock, and a couple of double NutSacs as well. In keeping with our practices they will be MSRP in Canadian funds, so $39.95 + tax and $69.95 + tax respectively ($44.75 and $78.35).
So without further ado, a product review by Dan:
Playing with a Nutsac*
* Read at your own risk
OK, full disclosure–I’ve had a Nutsac for years, so this is nothing new to me. Though
they come in many colors (I’ve seen pink, black, blue and even green Nutsacs), and
sizes (there are some large Nutsacs out there!), my Nutsac is small and brown.
While I play with it regularly, because of its small size I don’t actually use it that often
(even the largest Nutsacs I’ve seen are pretty small). Consequently, I see it as most
useful for travel, as you can throw your Nutsac over your shoulder (you wouldn’t want to
drag it on the ground), or tuck it into your trunk and head out on your adventures
When I do play with my Nutsac, though, it can really turn heads. Last year I pulled my
Nutsac out at a tournament in Virginia and a guy I meet (Hawk) insisted that I let him
take a picture of it and post it online (you can see my Nutsac at http://tinyurl.com/seemynutsac). It turns out that he also had a Nutsac, though his was larger than mine, and he played with his Nutsac all the time. In point of fact, he mentioned that he was even sponsored to play with his Nutsac and blogs about it whenever he does. When I looked at his Nutsac online (at http://nutsacbags.com/), I discovered that he is jokingly known as “the worst sponsored player in disc golf.”
And that is probably the best thing about Nutsacs–it’s hard to take yourself too seriously
when you’re walking around the disc golf course with your Nutsac on your shoulder.
For the uninitiated who have made it this far, a Nutsac is a bag for carrying disc golf
discs, and this is an honest to goodness product review. As highlighted above, the
Nutsac is a no-frills bag that is built to wrap around discs with no extra pockets (other
than a mini pocket on the front). The small bag will comfortably hold just three drivers,
two midranges and a putter (you can buy a drink holder as an add on). This lack of
space makes them impractical as a tournament bag (in addition to 15 discs my
tournament bag contains beverages, rule books, pencils, back up discs and minis, an
umbrella, change holders, first aid kit, and who knows what else), but great as a travel
bag when on the road for work or visiting family.
I can pack my Nutsac bag, with discs, in my suitcase, taking up about as much room as
a pair of shoes. I also keep it in my jeep–which has been broken into before. While I
would hate to lose my tournament bag and discs (again!), the Nutsac with six discs
would be a tolerable loss in exchange for the flexibility of always having discs on hand.
For its size, the bag is priced at the higher end ($40 for the small bag, $70 for the large),
but the for the convenience and cool quirkiness it offers, it’s a good bag to own. As I
hope you can tell from this review, personally, I am very attached to my Nutsac.
