We are always looking for new bags to check out and give you our honest first impression feedback and today we have 2 of the 3 series of bags from Sling Shot Cornhole, the SS-1 and SS-2. They also make an SS-3 series but we decided to stick with these 2 for now. These are new bags and all 3 series are ACL Comp Approved for the season and will come with the ACL stamp.

Sling Shot SS-1, Stop and Go Bag

First lets talk about the SS-1 Stop and Go bag. This is a slick n stick type bag that is ready to go right out of the box. All you bag washers out there, shouldn’t need to boil this one! I believe the fill to bag ratio is what makes the SS-1 feel great and perform forgiving around the hole. Meaning, get it near the hole and it will drop! The bags have a resin fill and measure right around 6″ x 6″ with a weight of 16 oz each bag.

The slow side of the SS-1 cornhole bag, with our logo, is a suede type material with a speed rating of 3. While the go (fast) side is a polyester type fabric with a speed rating of 7-8. The SS-1 is a great bag for those that like to play strategic with a block.

Sling Shot SS-2, Fast and Faster Bag

Now, on to the fast bag, the SS-2. This bag has no stick side, hence why we call it a fast and faster type bag. It felt a little tighter out of the box, so a good boiling might be in order to get it ready for game time. Unless you are patience like myself and like to break the bags in naturally by throwing them. Either way, you definitely will want to toss it around a couple times before heading to a big tournament.

Both the SS-1 and SS-2 bags are stitched very well with a small closing seem. And, like the SS-1, this bag measures approx 6″ x 6″ with a weight of 16 oz each bag. The corners of the Sling Shot Cornhole bags are rounded but not as rounded as some other bags I have tested out and used.

The Sling Shot logo side of the SS-2 cornhole bag is a polyester type material with a speed rating 8 and the opposite side is a different polyester type material with a speed rating of 6. This bag is for the player that likes faster style bags similar to an All-Slide. While I do recommend some break-in time for this series, mine broke in rather quickly.

If you are tired of the same old bags, why not support the new guy. Who is Sling Shot Cornhole? It started in a garage in 2015 with building a set of cornhole boards. After a couple boards were made we decided to start making the corn filled bags to go with the boards. After several thousand bags later we felt it’s time to offer pro style bags.

I’ve always been a blue collar worker and seeing that like most everything, pricing seems to be a little out of hand for the quality that you get in return. I’m offering a product that can go from the backyard player that may want to expand their game to league and tournaments without having to sacrifice quality for their budget and make it affordable to buy more than one series of bags.
