GRIP EQ - NEW ERA?

From: All Things Disc Golf

Sunday morning, Grip Equipment posted a blog entry titled “The END of an ERA” — and not much more than that. Grip said, “This is it. The bag that changed disc golf. There are 195 left. And we’re not making any more.” They also noted that the current bags are still guaranteed for life and they were not going anywhere.

This quickly turned some heads in the disc golf community as the popularity of the Grip bag has continued to rise over the last year. Locally, the number of Grip bags we have seen at tournaments have grown by leaps and bounds. 12-16 months ago, we were lucky to see more than 2-3 Grip bags around. Today, we see them by the dozens. There is no doubt the bags are popular.

All of this news came just days before they released the Paul McBeth signature bag. Grip only produced 30 of these patriotic bags and they were sold out very quickly. Wednesday afternoon, Grip posted on Facebook there were only 107 classic bags left.

With the current stock of Grip bags going down by the hour, it has led disc golfers to wonder what is next for Grip Equipment?

While one era is coming to a close, it looks like another one is starting. We can’t share any details right now, but there will be news soon. Stay tuned to All Things Disc Golf for more information. Trust us on this one.
