Cornhole is growing in Europe! Not only are there more and more professional players, but more and more high-quality products are being made. This month we tested three sets of professional bags from European manufacturers.

Kalle Akesson: Harno Bags
Kalle Akesson - Harno Bags

These bags are made by Kalle Akesson from Sweden. You can find it here. The Harno Bags, in a brown version, arrived at our doorstep within a few weeks. What immediately stood out is that the bags feel wonderfully soft. The fabric is not too hard and the filling is the same. This makes the bag comfortable to hold and you have a lot of grip on the bag itself.

Like most bags these days, this one also has two different sides. A fast and slightly more rough side. The difference between the two sides is not huge, but there is a difference. We would give the fast side a speed rating of 6, the stiff side a rating of 4.

For players who want to keep full control over their throw and are a little less into pure speed, these bags will be very happy.

Cost: About €60 for 4 bags.

Lion Board: Matrix Bags
Lion Board - Matrix Bags

The second set of bags are the Matrix Bags from Lion Board. What immediately stands out is the quality of the print. Both sides look super sleek. In terms of design, these bags immediately stand out. You can enter a tournament with this!
What is striking is that the bags are somewhat flatter than the other two tested sets.

This makes the bags feel a little harder in the hand, which is also due to the fabric being slightly harder than the bags from Sweden. The advantage of this is that you can generate a lot of speed with a "flat bag". Players who use sliding the board to score points can handle these bags well.

These bags also have two different sides. The manufacturer itself gives a speed rating of 6/4. We would categorize the smooth side more towards the 7, as they are a bit faster than the bags from Sweden.

Cost: About €58 for 4 bags.

Slicky Baggers - Series 4 - Double Face
Slicky Baggers - Double Face

The third set of bags we tested comes from Switzerland. Slicky Baggers is a new producer that is hard at work. The gentlemen come out with a new series of professional bags almost every week. We have tested the Series 4 (Double Face).

Compared to the other bags, this one is clearly the most filled. The bags therefore feel full. However, they are not heavier than the other bags. Players who like a full feeling in their pockets, and therefore don't want to feel like they can "squeeze" the pockets, will be very happy with this.
The manufacturer's speed rating is 2/8. We can get there. The smooth side is extremely fast, while the non-slip side stops almost immediately. This has its tactical advantages. Keep in mind that there is nothing in between. Either your bag goes very fast, or immediately stops.

Cost: About €80 for 4 bags.
