Is it just me or has the price of bowling bags really gone up? My 4-ball Hammer roller which I picked up a few years ago for around $200 are over $300 (when you can find them).

That sounds about right. Even on Amazon.com, bags are $250 and up. I have an old Storm 4-ball-roller, blue and silver. It takes great hand-strength to lower the handle :-) Wrestling with the handle is part of it's charm.

I'm working on my technique to reduce the number of balls I need. Only 2 would be nice.

I've had shoulder-surgery and 3 vertebra fused, I don't need a bag tougher than me :-)

I have a 6-ball stacker as well. I used it one time to haul my balls through the SouthPoint Hotel to get to Nationals in the area. Nope, not a good idea to push 90lbs of balls across carpet. It just sits in the garage now. I would sell it but it would cost a pretty penny to box it up and ship.

I had a similar experience in Vegas. I think it was the MGM Grand back in the 90's. About 100 degrees, half mile of unprotected asphalt. My wheels began to heat up and spread out. Me too :-)

When I bowled Nationals at Reno, I was pushing/pulling a 4-ball roller and a 3 ball roller from the hotel, through the streets to the bowling stadium. I told myself, never again so I bought the 6-ball roller to make things easier. Nope, bad idea.

The first time I shot in the stadium I was carrying 2 double bags. Facing the lanes we walked in from the right, went behind the lanes, walked behind 50 lanes and came out in the middle fanning our both left and right. Walking all that distance with 4 balls and no wheels just about did me in. Once we got settled on our lanes, they reset all 100 lanes at once. Very impressive. I haven't been there since they remodeled.

My wife loves Reno but I can't do the 580 miles drive with my [email protected]#$ back. I'll do Vegas because it's only 240 miles.

The Southpoint arena isn't too bad as the waiting room is right there to the side. Space to put your bags is a bit lacking though.

During major tournaments at the Stadium, if you check with the airlines, they have some pretty good deals.

Airlines charge too much for baggage now. My last flight with Delta, they charged $30 for the first checked bag and $40 for each bag after. Even if I went with only 4 balls, that's still 2 extra bags after my suitcase. Add my wife's 2 bags, you're looking at almost $200 for checked baggage. Too much.

I have a 6 ball roller also.1 love mine. If I donít take 6 balls I just leave the middle bag at home. If it is a bag from Strike Force I think you can remove the middle section and make it 4 ball bag.
