Bag Toss: Board Review

bag-toss-boards2

The Cornhole boards from Bag Toss are REALLY nice boards. The quality is the first thing I noticed when looking over the Cornhole Boards from Bag Toss. Crafted entirely of 1/2in. birch plywood, these boards are light-weight, sturdy, and strong. The edges of the boards have finger joints, to make them extra strong, and to ensure they stay together. The top edges and hole are rounded off, and there are even rubber pads for the legs. My favorite feature of the boards is that the legs are made to hold 4 cornhole bags! The legs fold in, and are secured by a piece of velcro. All around, really well made boards with a lot of attention paid to the little details.

Bag Toss specializes in “Tailgate” size boards, which are 3′x2′. While this may not be the “official” size, it is a great size to taking your boards wherever you go. To make them even easier to haul, Bag Toss offers a version with an additional hole. This second hole allows you to play a slightly altered version of the rules, with the smaller slot worth 5 points. Bag Toss also ofers a classic version, too, if you don’t want the second hole. That part is up to you. Bag Toss now offers a 4′x2′ version of their boards, too! The 4×2 boards don’t include the option for a second hole at this time.

Overall, the cornhole boards from Bag Toss are really impressive boards. They’re well made, sturdy, nice looking, and light weight. The 3×2 size is great a set of travel boards, and the purists can still pick up 4×2 boards, too.
