True, but it could be to influence those who haven't picked up a backpack bag.

Another way could be a group of owners giving their opinion of the pros and cons of their bag, rather than one neutral party.
Exactly plus each owner has to evaluate the other bags as well.

And they will have a lineup to choose from, do you honestly think that if one die hard bag owner is gonna play salesman for someone they don't work for that another isn't or even object to their claims? Let's be realistic now, we all got those fanboys on our course we argue with.

I'm sure you would do your best to be a neutral party, but it can be very difficult to do given your relationship to one particular company. You've basically described a focus group that you would lead. Bias in that role is going to have an impact. I'm not saying you shouldn't participate, or that I don't trust you. I am saying that GripEQ will donate a bag if the group review is led by a more neutral party.
I haven't officially become a tester. Mainly cause I haven't been sent anything. Should PF decide to use me great, however I was just excited and went ahead and threw that comment out there...I never expected that response. But it is what it is. However I will organize this video and show you what I mean and will do my best to make it as neutral as possible.

Triple your second comment is one of the elements I am including.. Let me lay this out for everyone crystal clear

Step1:
Organize all backpack bags, owners, and random group of disc golfers into one location

Step 2:
Open up experimentation with random DGers to try on, examine and give opinions on each bag. (All of this will be filmed)

Step 3:
Get opinions from bag owners after doing the same thing the random DGers did in step 2

Step 4:
Line up all bags, covering 4 specific details of each
-Material make up
-Unique Features
-Storage Capacity (size comparison)
-Price Comparison

All of this will be recorded and edited. None of this will have my personal opinion on any of the bags, including my own contender to make it as neutral as possible. However of course there will be some bias because yes I am a fan of the contender, but my opinion will not be included in the bias..If you have any concerns or questions, PM me or email me @djjolly037@gmail.com

Other than that, let's stick to the OP. Still on the hunt for a couple backpacks and need to plan a date and time.

I agree. But DGFanatic has never made it on own that he's a tester. In fact, I think he still denies it.

But I wouldn't want all testers doing this review. To some, it could come down to the best salesman.

Triple, listen, when I say I am organizing the review, that means one thing...I am organizing the format, and gather the golfers and bags in one place...then from the specs of each bag company am stating the materials, features, size/storage, and price of each bag..I can't put it any clearer than that.

Honestly it doesn't matter if its biased; this doesn't require a tester bag (although its amazing toe that grip would be willing to do that).

OP, do you have a list of who all has what bags they could show up with?

Hopefully the participants understand what is trying to be achieved from this.

Ahh lavon I didn't know you were in McKinney, shoulda caught a round while I was down there, and I agree a tester bag isn't necessary. The gesture is cool though.
