Types and Performance of Cornhole Bags

When it comes to the different types of cornhole bags, it is important to understand what you are buying. Different bags offer different features and styles of play. Whether you’re looking for bags that can be washed and get a little wet or a set of the original bags cornhole was played with, let’s explore the different options available to you!

 

Classic Corn-Filled Bags

Our classic corn-filled bags are the best value bags on the market. As the title suggests, these bags are filled with real whole kernel corn feed. These are the original bags the game of cornhole was played with. The bags are made in the USA and are official regulation size.

The corn-filled cornhole bags are made from a durable 10 oz duck cloth that allows for optimal sliding and durability. These bags are sold in half sets which include 4 bags. We offer half sets so you have the opportunity to get a mix of colors no matter what colors you’d like. Also, you can come back and buy the bags in half sets if you do not wish to replace a whole set of bags.

All Weather Resin Filled Pro Bags

These All Weather Resin Filled Pro Bags are often considered to be the top rated bags on the market. The pro bags offer a player multiple throwing options, and the most durable filling out there. The bags are filled with plastic resin pellets that do not break down over time. This allows for the same consistent throwing experience every time you use them.

These bags are two-sided and offer two different types of throwing styles. The white side of the bag is made of a micro fiber and allows you to stick the bag to the board much easier and reduces sliding. The colored side of the bag is made of cotton twill and allows for maximum sliding. You can’t beat the performance options theses bags provide in different situations during a game of cornhole.


Because these cornhole bags are “All Weather” there is no worries if they happen to get a little wet. Whether it’s from the weather or because you want to wash your bags, you do not need to worry about damaging or affecting the performance of your bags.

How to Properly Throw a Cornhole Bag

When it comes to throwing a cornhole bag, many people make the mistake of flipping the bag from an underhand throwing position. This can cause the bag to have an unnecessary “bounce” to it and cause you to lose control of your throw. When throwing like this, you drastically reduce the probability of you landing your bags on the cornhole board.  

The correct way to throw a cornhole bag is to use a motion that is very similar to throwing a frisbee. Using this technique creates a spin on the bag and allows it to land flat. This helps your bag have a more accurate and consistent landing and will allow you to control your throws much easier. 

Use your index finger as the base point of holding the bag. When you throw the bag it should for the most part spin off of your index finger and keep a relatively flat spin as it heads toward the cornhole board. Check out this video below for a first hand look on how to throw a cornhole bag in the correct fashion!

 

 

 

Although the concept of the game of cornhole is pretty simple to grasp, there are still many things you can do to help improve your playing style. Whether it’s throwing your bag on the cotton twill side for maximum sliding or using the microfiber to try and place your bag with precision, understanding your playing options can go a long way.

Cornhole is becoming a very popular game and is starting to become a staple in world of tailgating and parties in general. By understanding the different cornhole bag options and playing styles associated with them, you can set yourself ahead of the curve and be ready to play at any event or gathering!
