I've got a few particularly awesome new bags ... not from the same tree, if you know what I mean :wink:.

Wasabi Bags

Props to tha man who brought the TWISTED back 8).
For those of you who don't know, the 'Twisted' is an old 4-panel design from way back ... like most freestyle bags back then, they were large in size [55mm] and filled with plastic pellets. I loved my 90's Twisted and loved it long time, until some punk stole it while I was busking :evil:.
These new Twisted minis are slightly smaller than a golf ball and metal filled to around 63 grams, as is the current way. The minimini on the far left is even smaller!


Dean Bags

I used to sell Starbags through my Elemental Footbags brand ... they were also the larger [50mm] size and plastic filled. When I saw Dean post his first perfectly golf ball sized Starbag I just had to have one 8O.
The bag on the left went to a player at our club as a Christmas present today and the one on the right is mine. Both bags metal filled to around 65 grams and stitched to perfection.

My very first bag. it's a 12 panel made with the pentagon template of a 32. just needed some practice on an easier bag. it's made of the new ultrasuede ambiance samples I got. it's pretty heavy stuff compared to USL. I wouldn't say it's playable, but a decent first attempt hopefully.

I just bought a bag from isirc10, and he made it within one day and is shipping it to me this Monday.

He has wonderful customer service and replied to my emails very quickly and answered all the questions I had.

I am very happy with the sack, and recommend him to anyone who would like a bag!

New footbags from worlds!

Top row are from Tom Mosher and Matt Cross.

Bottom right is my first Hania bag.

The other two are Eskimo Joe. On the left is a super mushy amaretta bag. Soooo nice.

I didn't have many playable footbags before so it's pretty great to have these beauties to play with now :mrgreen: :footbag:

Two bags I got in a trade from a guy who stitches footbags here in Beijing:

they are made from real but thin leather. the left one is filled with sand and the other with big ?empty? ball bearings, so they kind of ring every time you kick the bag.

He also gave me a bunch of very cool coloured but really thin real leather to experiment with:

Awesome guy and very nice handicraft!
