ResinBags.com put together a nice visual to help you determine which bags are best for you. There are 3 types of bags and each side has been denoted with a red arrow to show you the speed of that side.

Well, well, well. It seems that Ebay is not being quick enough to spot people still using an old, old trick to sell lawn darts. Now, I don't sell anything related in the lawn darts realm anymore since the CPSC cracked down on me years ago (don't wanna go through that headache again), but the old trick used to be to go to Ebay and sell an empty box. It was one of many loopholes in the law, since the ban wasn't on the box, but rather the game itself. The empty box wasn't always empty when you received the package in the mail though. That is what sellers would have had to do back in the day to get around the Ebay ban on selling them. Well, I just checked tonight and people are still doing that, lol (or so it seems). Here, see for yourself:
If you don't see them listed, then maybe Ebay removed them. They are usually pretty quick about it. BUT periodically at the above link you may will see people trying to sneak 'em by Ebay (NOT ME, NO WAY!). If the boxes are listed as a buy it now, then the buyers sometimes are faster than Ebay is in removing the sale. In that aspect the buyer got one over on them. People that listed them via the auction format was a bad idea since Ebay had time to remove the listing. BIN though was an instantaneous sale (I counted 15 different SOLD listings within the past month on Ebay's "sold" section, so Ebay was a bit too slow to react on those BIN sales). Ebay usually removes the listing within a few hours. It's really a race on who is faster: Ebay, the seller or the buyer.

Tim Hill had us make some embroidered Resin Cornhole Bags via ResinBags.com for this nice set of Cupertino Electric cornhole boards that he had made. I must say, the entire set turned out very nice! Great job Tim!!

**** DO NOT USE WATER ON CORN FILLED CORNHOLE BAGS ****
Resin (all-weather fill) cornhole bags can be washed, BUT do not use any heat whatsoever. The heat from water or the dryer may make the fabric shrink. I would recommend hand washing with woolite and letting them air dry on a metal rack (or hanging them like a recent ResinBags.com customer did [Tim Hill from California] ... see pic below). Don't put them in direct sunlight for an extended period of time, since the sun may fade the fabric from prolonged UV exposure.

Bump. Friendly reminder that some people just don't know about these front two corners. I see the results all the time from customers having a puncture in their fabric that is not a seem failure. 99.9% of the time it is from these two front corners that were not dulled down.

Now all of the duck cloth fabrics at www.ResinBags.com have that "broken in" feel (with the exception of embroidered bags). This sets them apart from most other sellers, since there are very, very few duck cloth fabric suppliers that offer this material. Regular duck cloth is starched, which gives it a rough, canvas feel. Bags made with starched duck cloth tend to have too much slide until the bags are played with a while and "broken in". Now you don't have to wait for that break in period! ResinBags.com is also Veteran operated.

A gets 5 pts and B gets 7 for the round, so B adds 7-5 = 2 pts to their game score and has honors for the next round.
