Just found out that they are coming with a bannatyne hybrid bag. How much maintanence does it require? Should I get a moisture control system? What type do you reccommend?

I was thinking about the bottle water trap, but I don't know very much about it.

Do you mean the hide/synthetic? Or the new inverted bag?

If you're talking about the hide/synthetic bag (with the rubber things), then I could offer a bit of help. I certainly recommend this bag if you're wanting to go down the synthetic bag route - the hide gives the bag a nice secure feel under the arm, unlike some of the thinner, non-hybrid bags. If you're wanting to use any synthetic bag, use some form of moisture control. If you're a wet blower (that is, you find that alot of moisture comes out when you breathe) then use something more substantial, like a ross or a v3.

Another advantage of a synthetic bag over natural (hide and sheepskin) is that it requires alot less maintenace. I've used the Bannatyne hybrid for about 5 years now, and all I've had to do is unzip the bag after playing and remove any moisture control.

I'd thorougly recommend the Bannatyne hybird bag.

Yes that is the one

That doesn't clarify anything...
