I built myself a pvc tube stand and had to lug it everywhere, not bad for $20 in materials. Once I had the joimt folding stand, my life was so much easier to pack my stuff and move to the next field/game. Not only was it easier to pack, but with the ball sized in the top barrel holder, made life easier deciding which bore to use for play that day. But wait there's more... O ring station that never loses an oring, this feature could be helpful out in the field, keeps your o rings secure and safe. Hands down would recommend to any players looking for a solution in keeping our markers looking pretty when not in use.
