Again disappointed in material use in a bag company. 30 rip stop has no structure or rigidity. Ballistic as a base is a good choice but might as well make the entire bag out of it. 5 year warranty is not on par with Grip, Hyzerbomb, Physical Flight or Golf Mahal all offer lifetime warranties. No features in that list make it anything different than any other backpack. Unless the price is $50 cheaper than anything else I doubt it will be worth it with just a 5 year warranty, IMO.

I'm sure it will look nice tho, and I'm not bashing the bag just giving my opinion since I work in the textile industry and own the bags I have mentioned.

How is the storage laid out? Horizontally at the bottom a la Grip/Prodiscus/Mahal or vertically a la Ergo/Simian? Not boxy like the DD-Ogio bag/Revo Dual Pack I hope.

Sounds like a massive bag when you lost all of those discs. But you said the main compartment is 13 inches, isn't that like karma size? What current bag is the main compartment size comparable to?

Any idea when you will get pics up? Price point?

I understand the need for waiting for good pictures; but just really want to see it!

Also, "$200 is the price point on all 6 colors."

hope that makes sense. The disc golf community deserves great products and I think that the way they are delivered should be just in the same professional.

VDG-
k Thanks for the response, makes sense. I thought this was closer to being released. Obv you are far away from that if there isnt a good picture yet.

Hopefully that's inclusive of shipping.

Also curious if the straps are modeled after the Straight Jackets and will have the same cellphone pocket and earbud features.

One other thought: Voodoo's other bags have an adjustable liner for different capacities. If the Spinal Tap does, too, that's something to set it apart from the Grip or Physical Flight bags. Although Physical Flight may have one now...

Hey BillyR,

Just to clarify the 30D ripstop is what we use for the rainfly. We use it because its tough and can be stashed in a very small pocket. We toyed with the idea of making the whole bag of Ballistics however the 1000D Cordura has yet to fail on any of our bags. In addition I like the contrast between the two.

Ok that makes more sense about the ripstop, but why pay the same price or more for a bag with no lifetime warranty? especially when you say you have never had problems with the cordura? then why not warranty it the life of the bag? You can get the new release of the flak for $185-$190 with half the bag made of 1650 Ballistic materials, more colors and a lifetime warranty. Just hard to wrap my head around
