New to the Game? An Introduction to Speed Scales

Much like makes and models of automobiles, in the cornhole industry, there are many different manufacturers that make different series of bags.

While all pro bags are synthetic resin filled, they vary depending on shape. The materials used on each bag also vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and from series to series. These factors create contrasting differences between all of the bags that are currently on the market.

This is often reflected by using a “speed scale”. It is a general zero to ten scale. Zero being the most friction a certain material will make when it hits the board, aka the slow side of the bag. And, ten being the least amount of friction a material will create when sliding, aka the fast side of the bag. In general, the faster the bag is, the more hole friendly it is. But, also, the more difficult it is to control. In contrast, a slower bag may be a bit less hole friendly, but much easier to control!

It is up to you to decide what fits your playing style! A lower arching throw may call for a slower bag, while a higher arching throw may call for a faster bag! You will see on all of our pro bag listings will be speed ratings given by each manufacturer. The first number listed will be the speed rating for the fast side and the second number listed will be speed rating for the slow side. Thank you for reading, and we look forward to posting more content!
