CBC Bag Speeds
The speed rating we have given each bag describes the “slickness” or the “stickiness" of each side of the bag. If it had a rating of one, it would stick to the board like Cheeto dust to your fingers. If it had a rating of ten, it would slide up the board faster than a political promise on election day. Each bag has one slow side and one fast side, if there were any more sides it wouldn’t be a cornhole bag anymore, it would be a cube… or triangle… a tetrahedron? No matter, if you are having trouble picking, contact us and we can help you choose a bag that fits.
The flop rating is a number we provide to describe how floppy the bag will be after breaking it in. When you buy a new set of bags, they will feel a bit firm to the touch… rigid perhaps. This is completely normal; the bags don’t get floppy until they are broken in. Though the denizens of the interwebs present innumerable opinions on how to break in your bags, we here at CornSlingers Bag Co. can only recommend two methods:
It sounds weird to say this, but things like temperature, humidity, and location of play can have an impact on how bags perform. This isn’t just our bags, it’s every bag, and it’s the science of how they interact with the board. If humidity is so high you feel a drip of sweat trickle down your backside, you can bet the boards are super sticky. On a nice dry day with “I should be chilling on a beach somewhere” temperatures, the boards are probably going to be a lot faster. These variables can have the impact of making an 8 feel like a 9, or a 4 feel like a 3.
