Ripped strap

Recommended Posts

Grndslmhttr3    40

One of the straps on my bag ripped, but it looks like it can be fixed. It definitely doesn't warrant a new bag purchase, nor would I want to get one because it's an awesome bag and there is literally nothing else wrong with it. As you can see, I tied the strap around the bag handle, which has been an acceptable short-term fix, but I want to fix the ripped strap at some point. There are actually two problems here:

The first problem is that the little strap holding the plastic thing in the first picture (no idea what its proper name is) became undone. It looks like that is pretty easily fixed since a sewing needle could get in there without much trouble. It's the second problem that worries me: that small strap is starting to tear from the bag (second picture), and I'm not sure that could be fixed as easily. Could a tailor/someone else do it? I don't think reattaching the plastic thing would be difficult, but eventually, the entire thing would rip off of the bag itself.

I would take it to  a shoe repair shop, they deal with tougher materials than a tailor does, hence they have heavy duty needles and thread...

Similar thing happened to my bag earlier this year, used it as a excuse to get a new bag. But if you are satisfied with the bag you have I'd also recommend a shoe repair shop.

Thanks guys, seems like a shoe repair shop is probably the way to go. I got the bag as a Christmas present in 9th or 10th grade so it's lasted me like 6 or 7 years so far, and I'd like that trend to continue!

A shoe shop is probably good; another suggestion would be an automotive or marine upholstery shop.

As far as DIY, comparable strapping can be found at ACE hardware, but the problem is finding suitable thread and needles. May actually be cheaper to get it done at the suggested locations.

    • I've often had the problem of not hitting the driver as well as irons.  Over the last few rounds I came up with something that works pretty well for now:  Activate the wrists a little more with the driver.  With irons I've been swinging with a kind of "dead hands" feel in an attempt to cast/flip less and get a nice inline impact.  It just doesn't work the same for me with the driver. Now I'm trying to get a little more of a "swinging" feel with the driver.  Not afraid to let the club swing the wrists back into a hinged position, then not afraid the feel them swing unhinged in the downswing.  Sort of conciously unhinging them.  Not too much though.  Still have to swing the arms and body.  I'm just sort of letting the club head go more instead of my normal bunt/block kind of shot. I hope some of that made sense and was helpful.
    • Okay, I feel a little better now. Thanks for the info guys. Saved me a little worry
    • I just didnt get it. I have a. Odyssey metal x milled 1 that I love and works great for me and I have an odyssey white hot rossie, that I also love the feel, balance, weight, and the way it plays. I got them both for about 200, 200 for both clubs, their used, except that the metal x is in mint condition, but 200 for two good clubs I get, 350 for a putter....it better guarantee that u jar it from 90 ft before I pay that much. But thats my opinion. I just didnt know if they're was something amazing or mystical about these that I was unaware of for that price
    • Maybe thick grip on putter trend seeping into full swing clubs? Heck if I know. Do thick grips make it harder to install via air compressor?
    • did not know where exactly where to place this thread, but........ Okay, I have been struggling with iron play so have been working diligently on it at the expense of losing faith in Driver, fairway woods, and lower lofted hybrids. I have gotten much better at the irons, hitting all of them crisp and even being able to stop on a green. Today it was almost like throwing darts in that most of the iron approaches stopped dead in their tracks, however the greens were recently heavily "sanded" and therefor hardly any roll out at all. Just "thud craters". Not complaining mind you, as its always nice to lay one right up pin high within three feet or so (but sometimes shorter than expected).  That being said, now I just can not seem to hit driver e.t.c.  (nothing new here, and a lot of discussion in the past).  It would be nice to have a practice routine that would benefit me in both ways or as the subject line says, achieve balance.  Just a mild moment of "introspection" and muse.......
