Agreed.

Should we all go into every equipment thread and talk about everything we don't like about products we haven't used? Let's be constructive.
No top pocket (which is key to the grip bag and what makes it great, makes it so you dont bend over all the time), terrible looking putter pocket, drink holder and eye glass thing. Overall it looks terrible srry. It doesnt look sleek, rather it looks like someones hair when they wake up in the morning. Plenty of opinions can be made from a picture and reading what the bag has and what it doesnt.

not saying it isnt functional. I mean its an upgrade from a trash bag, but saying its a viable option from a Grip bag . yawn.

They are probably made in the same factory anyway.

He's waiting for a response. Let it die. Those of us who like them, like them and we know why. That's all. It's a my bag is better than your bag syndrome. oh well. I'm happy with mine, seems most folks here are too, so good for us. Yay, now get off the computer and get out there and rip! Everyone!

Got mine today and am pretty damn happy with it. I had put back the money to buy a Grip bag and just decided to pull the trigger on this one to save a few bucks.

Frame is built and ready to go in.

Also?

It's a fishing tackle bag, converted to hold discs. As a fisherman, I can use the four tackle boxes provided without removing my pvc frame, that's a huge plus.

Plus, being 6'4, the Grip doesn't hold near as much as I desire (extra towels, hoodie, food, snacks, drinks etc). It is a no brainer to me, considering it's dual purpose for me, and I see zero need to spend hundreds on dollars on a bag when I'm not anywhere around 1,000 rated. I'd rather spend that extra money on other things, and it's very comfortable to boot. If you don't like that looks that's fine, looks are a person-to-person quality trait.

Agreed. I think this bag is an amazing value. If you go on Discaroo's "Gear" section tonight, you'll see a USED Revolution Backpack for $180.00. It's basically the same bag that's modded here.

Is it EXACTLY the same? No. The Revo bag is geared exclusively for disc golf.

Is it pretty damn close? Yes. The layout of the discs are in the same spot, as well as the storage. Plus, the modded bag actually looks a little more comfortable to wear.

Lastly, the USED Revo bag is also $130 more than the Cabela's bag. $115 more if you add the frame to the Cabela's bag.

I'm Michael J. Fox, and that's one to grow on.

Upon further investigation, it looks like that bag on Discaroo is actually a used (ripped) Grip bag for $180.

Still...

Apparently, I'm the thread killer here.

Anyway, here's what mine looked like about an hour after I got it. I've made a few adjustments (towel is in the top compartment now), but basically the same bag.

Nah, you're not a thread killer. I am.
