DerrickSmash :: Weatherproof Bag Review

Weatherproof Bags from DerrickSmash.com

DerrickSmash is proud of his products, and not afraid to put himself out there. We’ve already checked out corn filled bags & boards from DerrickSmash. This time around we’re going to check out the Weatherproof bags from the same place.

DerrickSmash Weatherproof bags are made like standard duck cloth bags, but they’re recycled plastic pellets. Our first DerrickSmash bag review showcased the quality of the bags, so we won’t repeat ourselves here. The thing to note with these bags is the filling. Synthetic bag filling can often be lighter than corn, resulting in bags that are overstuffed like fat little pillows. The DerrickSmash bags don’t suffer from this issue. These bags have a really nice weight, and a fill that is consistent with a new set of corn bags. Given that the stitching on the bags is top notch, you can expect to get a LOT of play time out of these bags. They’re so sure of it, in fact, that you’ll receive a one-year warranty with the bags.

If you’re thinking of checking out synthetic filled or “weatherproof” bags, you’d be wise to check out what DerrickSmash.com has to offer.

Highlights of our testing:

Weight: 15.1 – 15.2 oz.
Size: All bags roughly 5 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ square. (promised to expand to 6″ after break-in)
Stitching: double stitched fill side.
Fill:
Recycled Resin Pellets
Notes: Bags are very consistent from one to the next. Synthetic filling is weighed very close to feed corn. Bags are not overstuffed, and play very consistent with corn bags. Great as a long lasting alternative to corn bags.
