The Story Behind Grandma and our Disc Golf Dirt Bags
If you've ever had grip issues on your discs, you've probably looked into Dynamic Discs’ Dirt Bags. If you've bought one of our dirt bags, we bet you didn't know that it was handmade. We'd like to introduce you to the person who makes those dirt bags and tell her story. It's time for you to meet Grandma.
10 years ago, Jeremy Rusco and Adam Searle went to an event and saw some dirt bags for sale. Because we're always working on something, they started to brainstorm on how Dynamic Discs could have a product like that.
Adam said, "I bet my Grandma could make these for us." Jeremy brought one of the bags back to Grandma, and she took it apart to make sure she understood how it was made. She took to her heavy-duty Singer sewing machine and made 200. She expected to make that initial batch and be done.
However, the bags sold very well, and Dynamic Discs quickly needed more bags, so Grandma made another batch. And another one. And another one.
10 years later, Grandma has 3 other people helping her make dirt bags, and they make 500 bags every other week. She can't believe that they're selling all over the world, and she puts a lot of love into making them.
We thank Grandma every time we pick up a new batch of dirt bags, and next time you use yours to improve your grip, thank Grandma for us as well!
