Bannatyne Hide/Synthetic for me too. Although after 5 months, I'm thinking of a return to sheepskin

Personally, if I had to go synthetic, I'd go Ross. Good shape and a very reliable bag if treated well. I have one on an old set that's about eight years old (no joke) that gets played fairly often and is still in good shape. I think part of the reason it's lasted so long is because I don't use the Ross canister system with it.

(For the record, I prefer hide, Nothing can replace the feel and response you get from one. Oddly enough, I just so happen to play a Bowes sheepskin bag on my main solo competition set. It's over a year old and has many more competitions left in it!)

Good luck,
Erik

Nice one Erik, and you are forgiven Neil. Its that time of year when the bags are selling very quickly, but would always mansge to get you sorted out.
