: Odd question on Bumper Boys....

This may seem like a weird question, but here goes.

I have two Derby Doubles and just ordered my third. Not too much trouble carrying the two around the fields and setting them up. One in each hand. However, I can see it being really awkward carrying three around to set them up. How do you guys with multiple launchers "haul 'em" around wihtout making two trips back to the truck?

I've got 2 4 shooters and here's what I did. Gander Mtn was selling LARGE duffel bags very cheap - $10 I think. I bought one and can fit both units, all the bumpers, transmitter and ammo with lots of room to spare. My opinion would be to get a bag large enough for your needs and tote it around on your shoulder with a strap. If you get a large enough bag you could set one unit in each end and then 'break' the bag in half so they wouldn't hit each other during transport.

Well, if you are asking how to carry them or haul them, then that is a totally different question. I had 4 and i tied a nylon strap to each one. I could put 1 over each shoulder and carry 1 in each hand. Worked like a charm. I had 3 doubles and a 4 shooter. You can buy that strap for next to nothing. Tie it aroung the ends where the cross tube bolts in and it will be out of the way and not interfere with the launchers.

Do you have a picture of what you're talking about? ATVs aren't an option for a city slicker who does a lot of training in public parks. Local law enforcement wouldn't take to kindly to that! :D

No i sold my bumper boys about 3 months ago and bought wingers. Any good hardware store will have nylon straps or nylon rope. You can tie that rope around the ends as long as it is out of the way of the ports for the launchers and you can make sure of that when you set them on the ground. The straps work really good. I used them that way for about 2.5 years. Hope this helps.

I hold two bottom to bottom and carry two in one hand and one in the other. It takes a large hand and some hand strength, but it can be done.
