Re: [DML] Re: A couple of exciting new products available at DCS 06 in Pheasant Run



 
  The tower brace does decrease the trunk depth in that area, but only by the diameter of the bar (maybe and inch or so).
   
  You must have a smaller golf bag than I do, though.  I've never been able to get them to fit anywhere except the back shelf.

fit? Mine has to go in diagonally as it is.
