I just want to chime in that I know and have played a bunch with Mike and am so happy to see his company moving forward like this. If I can get the scratch together I'll definitely be getting one of these bags. I understand all the skepticism on the internet but this is a stand up guy who has his act together and it's been fun watching his company come along.

Yes this a mocked up image of the bag, the bag has not been made yet it's in the design process, the bag will look like that, at the moment I'm getting feedback as to what pockets people want to see on the bag. I hope people dont think that I have these bags in my hand at this moment because I did not want it to seem that way. But these bags are coming in the future and in the coming weeks we should have a more narrow window as to the final date.

As someone who has used a dual pack and other diy backpacks with a bottom disc storage system, something that separates the top storage compartment from top of the discs is important. The extra weight on top really weighs down on the discs and makes it difficult to pull them out.

Also, while the big empty space at the top seems like a great idea, it makes it hard to find things when it is packed. A fully loaded top could make things a little top heavy without an internal frame.

Make sure the putter pocket(s) have room for 2-3 putters, not just one.

this is a solid point

the Dual Pack rocks for the ability to store stuff in the top compartment
if you need to carry rain gear, hoody, extra towels etc etc etc
this bag rocks

but it does sag down and it is just a giant cavern

something like this should be incorporated into the new bag but supported somehow so that it does not sag down onto the discs

perhaps it could also be divided somehow for a larger area for clothing and a well divided and pocketed smaller area for other things

the side pockets on the dual are useful

if UB (Mike's) new bag is like the Dual and the Grip had a baby it would be stellar

I look forward to this potential offering

I carry a dual pack for mostly tournament play so it doesn't get that much use.
2 things not to repeat:
1) the frame is starting to pop out and i don't know why. I mean doesn't affect anything, but in my opinion, its just looks dumb and am embarrassed to carry sometimes.
2) tip compartment, with what's said above. Maybe divider in there or some pockets within the big pocket.

You are in the best forum for this kind of stuff. I will say that dgcr will make or break you!
I lol'd

Also, this is shadier than Grip IMO.

How could anyone think that releasing a bag like this* would be a great idea after that debacle?

* obv not talking about the style of the bag, talking about the way theyre going about marketing and the pre order and blah blah.
