Default Knock off Gorilla Boy Bag.

I see this bag is a knockoff of the Gorilla Boy Bag, a few are just saying this bag is garbage because it is not the original.

I can't say whether it's garbage or not, but I do know that I've owned a Squirrel Monkey from GB and bought a very well used original version Simian that is still going strong with my friend who bought it from me and loves it. I KNOW the Simian will be the last bag anyone needs/will have to buy. I wouldn't want to spend 150 bucks to see if this bag is even half as well-made.

Yeah, the real deal is worth the extra cash IMO. GB bags are built like tanks.

I have the opportunity to review a brand new Baglane disc golf bag this weekend. Let me know what you would like to see in the review and I will try to get to everything, I'm making a list and will probably be posting the review on YT on Sunday. I am not a shill for these guys at all but I offered to objectively review the bag for them after they received some outlash on reddit and got their Amazon listing tanked with one-star reviews. I aim to do a out-of-the-box review and then another review after ~2 months of play.

I will not be commenting on my personal views on the subject of whether this is a "rip-off" or not and not interested in debating that here. I just want to give a fair shake and let the user decide for themselves.

Thanks guys.
Same bag company, different bag title. Is the bag named a Fusion because they fused Gorilla Boy's product and Baglane's competitive business sense together to make this bag? YouTube video?

Default almost certainly manufactured by the same company

As Gorilla Boy's owner acknowledges, he outsourced manufacturing of the black Simians. I can almost guarantee that these Baglane/Fusion bags are manufactured alongside the black Siminians in the same factory.

Sad truth about outsourcing manufacturing to China.

I remember him saying it was just a one off deal to handle some backorders or something. Would be odd to outsource just one color.

Competitive business sense???

I think you meant flat out theft. Disgusting and nobody with an ounce of awareness and decency would buy the bag or support the “company”. I still hope GB sues those slimy douches.

Seems hard to sue the Chinese that makes the same bags from multiple factories in China. Suing Bagalane is possible as they still make the original model for them from multiple factories, the other more expensive model of same thing is a "improvement" by having a side compartment have the ability to be a insulated cooler with drain pouch. In my mind it is not enough to change the bag to being an improvement on an old model unlike the Infinity almost knock off of the small Upper Parks bag.
