    Comments about Matthews Shotbag - 15 lb:

    Excellent weight, heavier than sand so the same weight takes up less space. Materials are all super strong, but I would expect nothing less from a Matthews product. Shot bags have no chance of leaking the particles are larger than sand. Great bag, I would buy again.

      Comments about Matthews Shotbag - 15 lb:

      Funny how life catches up with you. I hauled all sorts of loads for years, decade after decade. One day in my mid-fifties I stepped off a curb wrong and experienced a back injury. After several thousand dollars of physical therapy I realized I had to make some life changes and some gear adjustments: no more 25 lb and 30 lb sand bags. I switched to 15 lb and 10 lb shot bags for video production. There is so much less strain on my back now. I've started purchasing this particular model shot bag as I rotated C-stands back into my arsenal. Yes, they cost more than traditional sand bags, but the money I'm saving in physical therapy and reducing further injury justifies their cost. I've never had an injury in my life until my fifties, and, quite frankly, thought that I never would be injured. Save your back while you can. Lighten your load sooner than later. That way you can continue to do the work you love to do. Also one big advantage of shot bags is that they have a smaller footprint than corresponding sandbags weighing the same amount, so their smaller footprint takes up less storage space in my studio.
