Tossing games have truly rocketed to enormous heights of popularity in just the past few years. Without question, the most widely played toss game is one where players utilize bean bags or corn-filled bags. These bags are simple in nature and are not expensive, elaborate pieces of equipment by any stretch of the imagination. However, it is vital to make sure you are purchasing the proper kind of bean bag toss bags. Failure to do so will result in bags that last only a few games and then split open on you, spilling all their contents in front of your family and friends; how embarrassing!
So, here are a few guidelines to follow to be absolutely sure you are buying the right kind of bean bags or corn bags. First, these bags need to be manufactured using duck canvas fabric. Duck canvas is very strong and durable and is often used to make hammocks and boat sails. Stay away from cheap variants such as trigger cloth.
Next, you are advised to buy cornhole bags that are stitched with a UV-resistant, water-resistant thread such as nylon or polyester. Cotton threads will last a short time and will fray very quickly. Lastly, bags should be regulation size 6” x 6” and regulation weight 14-16 oz. Bags should be filled with cleaned, whole kernel corn and not any other sub-standard filler material.
