Default Re: Position of drones - bag size

An experienced pipe major recommended I switch to a large bag and that fixed the problem immediately for me.
Seems (to me) almost anybody can fit onto a large bag..and all the makers are pretty close in same depth...but not so for ‘everybody’ on a small bag. Ha! I do recall having a large Bannatyne once ...forever it felt like my left elbow was almost paralell to the ground. Color me surprised when it leaked enough to be replaced and I finally measured it ...schnikee’s it must have been an XXL ...IIRC it was 12- 1/2” depth.
