Since Innova seems to have gone all-in on PMB I bet he gets some sort of profit sharing. So he may have been using the Innova bag to advertise for Innova and thus make himself a little more money, but decided it was better for his personal bottom line to carry a bag he feels will help him perform better.

Pure speculation, of course.

Those Grip A and AX bags are off the chain. I didn't think I'd ever have a bag that cost that much(thank you to the old lady on this one), she got me the Orange/Black AX and it's an A+ bag.

I asked Paul about this the other week. His caddy (very tall dude) ripped off some of the bottom feet area to provide more comfort, as it was digging into his back. Made for a hole, if I recall correctly, so the bag was giving way. Paul liked the sand colored Grip for its lack of logos and snagged it in the meantime until he gets another Innova bag. He's not sponsored by Grip.

Iv'e had my A series since about a month after they came out. What, 2013? Apart from some color fading, the bag has been flawless. Price was definitely justified.

Pro hockey players do it all the time. If they want to sample a product they're not already affiliated with, like a stick, then they just blot out the logo of the item they are trying and go about their business. It's not a big deal.

I just saw an interview on Glide's FB with Adam Hammes, where he has this bag.

Makes me think it's still in the works.

Conspiracy Theory: Innova bought Grip and McBeth can't talk about it yet.

Interesting though, I'm not sure if it's just innovastore.net or Innova saying this about the superhero backpack:
"Even Paul Mcbeth uses it!"

They released that grip bag knockoff on the Innova Factory Store a few months ago. They are long gone now but they had public release.
