Please define "reasonable price"???

If you look at bowlersparadise.com's 3-ball selector, you'll discover
the LEAST EXPENSIVE price they have for one is a mere $68.99 (http://
www.bowlersparadise.com/shop/bags/elite/elite_dimension_black.shtml).
Add the very reasonable FedEx "Economy" shipping charge (4-8 days:
$23.95), and your total cost is only $92.94.

This SAME BAG, if you got it at your local Pro Shop will cost you
$107.99 ** RETAIL ** plus at least $11 dollars in SALES TAX, putting
your LOCAL RETAIL COST @ around $120!

I'm sure buddiesproshop.com will have similar offerings @ similar
prices and similar shipping costs.

Please take a serious look at these ways of getting a new 3-ball
roller! :)

Great! please tell us how you like the bag after you get it. :)

FWIW, I have one of those "add a ball" bags when (if?) I want to carry
a fourth(!) ball with my current 3-ball roller...

I purchased a elite double roller and a ebonite "add a bag" that
connects to roller bags at www.bowling.com . what I like about
bowling.com is all the shipping is free. it cost me about $75 total.

If this isn't a good "Murphy's Law" example, I don't know what else to
call it... ;)

Seriously: on-line bowling shops are the best places to get these
things, as long as you know EXACTLY WHAT you're looking for! :)

Good luck on your quest, etc. :)

I'm looking for the same thing. There are some nicely priced new bag options
on Ebay. My most recent bag was made by KR. It worked fine for a few years
until the telescoping handle broke, just in time for the replacement handle
to have been discontinued...

www.Bowlersparadise.com immediately comes to mind.

It also depends on what STYLE of triple-roller you want: in-line or
"therwise"?

FWIW, this is the one I have and I like it a lot - Columbia "Hi Roller
III": http://www.columbia300.com/gear/bags.cfm?cid=3. It looks like
bowlersparadise.com doesn't have any in stock at this time. I like it
because its' wide base is VERY STABLE (IOW, it won't "tip over" when
you're moving it) and it's MUCH SHORTER in height than "standard" 3-
ball rollers (it's shorter than a 2-ball roller). However, its' wide
base is its' greatest problem - it won't fit very well between
"narrow" aisles AND, if you're not careful, you can bump your heel(s)
while walking. Other than that, I think it's a very decent design.

Hope this helps... :)
