Agreed. This isn't an "official Grip thread" or anything like that. If I was asking about a company's customer service, I would like to hear about other options. There appears to be a lot of unwritten rules on these open forums.

Great choice!
And while I only own a Grip, I've carried a Flak, gateway backpack, and prodiscus bag on my back for a round each. The Grip and the Prodiscus are the best of the four that I've tried on for a round. I might get a prodiscus next year b/c of the color options, but I really don't need all the storage space it offers.

Grip makes an awesome bag without a doubt, but other companies like Prodiscus, mahal and Physical Flight make just as goo or better bags.
And the grip is eerily similar to the Cabela's pack.


Thanks again Mr.Glass!

Thanks bro, just trying to get the word out and show others that there is a legitimate other option to grip. But as you know that can be hard when there is so much allegiance to one brand.

I'm GRIP-neutral here (still rockin an '05 Innova Tour) but if you want a foothold against that allegiance, you might work up an attractive wholesale model. GRIP is content to be unknown to 98% of disc golfers by focusing on Promantic AMs and shutting out online retail. Be the smarter company and open up your brand to a wider audience.

Very good idea. With the right amount of orders from retailers I can offer good wholesale prices but it becomes difficult in small numbers.
