    Default Why are all double rollers made with short handles?

    Well the question is obvious. I'd love to find a good double roller that had a handle long enough like my luggage does. All the handles are so short I feel like a hunchback dragging it around.

    They all extend but not long enough. Compared to a carryon luggage roller it's about 10" short. And if you're tall you have to bend over to roll it.

    Sounds like a good excuse to get more balls and a bigger bag to put them in. It does make you wonder wth the manufacturer's are thinking because they all seem to do this.

    Exactly and I've looked at everything. It's real simple to do but they all seem to use the same platform. And a heavier bag is not what I need, ha. A triple roller is fine. Oh well.

    Maybe you need to find yourself a ball boy who is shorter than yourself. Problem solved and it saves your arms for bowling! Can't wait for my son to grow up so I can have my personal ball boy for league nights.
    I got a few years.

    Why are all double rollers made with short handles? If they made them longer they would stick out from the bag when collapsed, this would make it awkward for storage.

    Also if they used more telescoping , it would be more likely to bend and bind.

    Nope, my carryon luggage weights as much or more and telescoping is not a problem. If you used decent materials it could easily be done. They'd have to charge more but I'd gladly pay.

    I didn't say it couldn't be done, Just meant that there was a more likely chance there could be a problem with the tubing being deformed.

    Do to the extra sections that would be needed.

    I see what your saying now, the why is simple, the handle is the same length as the bag so that when put down it fits. compared to your luggage, when the handles are both down, which is taller a double roller on the luggage?

    Solution is simple, extend your arsenal to 3 and get a triple roller! or... get a 2 ball tote
