Editor's Notes

October 16, 2020:

You'd think a backyard game that started out with a handful of corn sewn into some cotton wouldn't evolve much, but competitive sports has a way of inspiring innovation. You can now find options made with fabric of various textures, instead of plain old duck cotton, to help provide an important edge. But those who play for backyard family fun, tailgating before a game, may prefer the traditional corn-filled bags, if only for nostalgia's sake.

A sturdy set from Johnson Enterprises Standard and the officially licensed Victory Game Bag are reliable choices and exactly what many recreational players will have in mind. For this update we also added a corn-filled choice from the American Cornhole Association, their impressive uniformity and durability make an excellent choice for the more serious traditionalist.

Bags filled with plastic pellets like the SC Games Weather Resistant can be ideal for families with children who may not stop playing when it rains, or even leaves a stray bag in the grass overnight. The advantage of a plastic pellet is it won't break down over time like an organic filling can, so the bags maintain a consistent weight and feel.

The slick and stick bag is preferred by competitive players as it gives them more control over how the bag lands. We added the Beer Belly Performance Series in addition to our dual-action top pick, the Surefire Pro, because the Beer Belly injects a bit of fun in its design.

February 20, 2019:

For this list, we prioritized the durability and quality of materials before other factors. Since seam-busting tends to be a common pitfall across the category, we favored products with warranties or replacement guarantees, in addition to being double and even triple-stitched. Some players prefer an old-school corn filling, so we included selections like Free Donkey Sports, Toysharing Outdoor Fun, and Johnson Enterprises Standard, while those who wanted a weather-resistant stuffing that doesn't break down over time have items like the SC Games Resistant and Play Platoon Bean to choose from. We threw in the Oojami Nylon Assorted so the kids can get involved. Finally, our top two choices feature double-sided configurations for the most serious cornholer, with the SureFire Pro, in particular, incorporating an impressive amount of quality control and thought into their design.

Special Honors

Game Changer Steady Everything new about the Game Changer Steady is designed to give players an edge. Similar to the original Game Changers featured on ESPN, the Steady bag has rounded corners, as much as the American Cornhole League will allow. Plus it's slick on both sides, with a suede patch in the center of one side, for players who find it's speed to be too fast. allcornhole.com

Dirty Bags Slide Rite These fun but competitive bags are approved by the American Cornhole League and are constructed with synthetic suede on one side and a synthetic blend on the other, for excellent sliding in any conditions. They're available in a variety of eye-catching prints, including pop art and tattoo themes. dirtybagscornhole.com
