Sinclair Features Edgewood's New Grab-Handle Rear Bags

Here’s an cool new product from Jack Snyder, maker of Edgewood Shooting Bags. The new Grab-Handle Rear Bag (available in both “original” and Mini-Gator sizes from Sinclair Int’l), is unique — the super-thick leather base of the sandbag is extended, forming a grab handle. This has two big benefits. First, of course, the bag is easier to carry. Second the extended leather bottom also helps the bag stay in place. Edgewood first made a few of these grab-handle bags at the request of F-Class shooters. The smart design works well — the handle makes the bag easier to carry to the firing line, and the larger footprint makes the bag more stable when shooting off the ground. These would be excellent bags for varmint hunters who move to new firing points frequently. Sinclair Int’l prices Grab-Handle Bags at $119.95 for standard, and $145.00 for the larger, Mini-Gator size.

Elbow Pad and Brick Bag
In addition to the Grab Handle rear bags, Sinclair has added two useful, leather bench accessories from Edgewood: an Elbow Pad and a 7.5″x5″ Hand rest. The $49.70 Edgewood Elbow Pad (item 04-7550) features a sand-filled, U-shaped outer leather collar, non-skid bottom, and stitched nylon center insert. These pads not only cushion your elbow on rough concrete benches, but they help you maintain the same exact body position for each shot. That, in turn, helps you shoot more accurately.

Edgewood’s hand rest (also called a brick bag) is excellent for resting your hand or wrist. It can also work as an elbow bag. The hand rest ($46.95, item 04-7590) is made from high-quality grained leather with a stiff, double-layer bottom so it sits flat. It has the new bottom-pocket tabbed fill tube. This bag is 7.5″ long, 5” wide, and 2.75” tall — but you can adjust height by the amount of sand fill. If you use it as an elbow pad, you may want to try it about 70% full so it “form-fits” to your elbow.
