Weaver 10oz bag with Zing-it line out of a Stein cube.
Launched by a Big Shot because being able to throw is just an urban myth.
I've recently realised I do need a heavier bag because it's sometimes tricky getting the bag to come down on the really high shots.

Re: throwbag poll take 2

Weaver 16 oz ,nothing more annoying than getting a tricky shot and the bag won't come down.

16oz? At least you don't need to climb to do any dead wood.

Re: throwbag poll take 2

I competed in my first isa comp this year and want to thank guys that enlightened me how much better it is having at least two setups for a throwline, treated myself a few weeks ago and its amazing how many more shots are useable with another setup by bag manipulation. Cant remember the guys name (a new zealander with dredds) but cheers for lending your kit and the useful information
