Good choice of starter footbags

Post by Cnick946 » 29 Nov 2008 17:32

Obviously, I'm new to the sport.
What are some good starter footbags?
I bought one today at Sports Authority
I think it's a 32 panel.

take a look at planetfootbag.com, the shipping could may be a problem, but they offer a lot of good beginner bags. i started with a "mars", a pluto or a sole assassin are nice beginner bags, too.

Get Richard Abshire's 32 panel mini facile footbag.
I feel that this bag (even though this is a high level shred bag) offers itself to being a good bag to kick with and it will last. The facile tight stiched is ideal for learning control of stalls and sets. The hybrids are ideal for shred and are a bit more sticky to the foot . Abshire is a great sticher and nice guy. 8)

Echoing the Mr. Sandbag recommendation from freedomfootbags. As an added bonus, it'll come with a nice pamphlet explaining the basics of freestyle.
The abshire mini is allot more expensive and less forgiving than the Mr.

Although getting a freestyle 32 when you're starting out is a very intriguing and gungho approach to getting into freestyle asap, you can't go wrong with the Mr. Sandbag. Get those basics down, and put adds on those shoes (hopefully the Rod Laver or anything else used in freestyle). Even if your progression is at a slow pace, you won't regret getting the appropriate equipment for footbag. What really matters in the end is having the proper discipline and volition in learning more and more about this sport. :)

Well, I didn't know the number of panels made a difference at first, so that's the only reason I bought a 32 panel, because I had no idea they made a difference.
I'll probably go with a 4 panel Mr. Sandbag to learn my basics
