I have a C-15 and it's pretty much perfect for me.

Have to see what the price is going be. Can't see it being cheap enough to warrant the purchase though.
$99 is the rumor around town

$99 seems a bit much for it's use, but hey, who knows, may be the next trend, minimalism with shoulder bags! All the carts are going to be sold for scrap metal, old school is back!

Hard pass. Seems like your paying for the name grip not the actual product. I was thinking it would be 69.99 and I would say that was too much. But for 100 bucks I can get a nice fade bag that holds the same amount plus some discs.

I don´t have any problems with a $100 pricepoint. . i mean, sig. discs go for $25, and a nice bag feels more complicated and expensive to make than four discs.

But i´m Swedish and had to pay $500 for my Pound Octo, so for me the Grip bags are a bargain

While the $99 price point did rankle me a bit at first, I started thinking about what I've paid for other DG bags over the past 18 years. I've had quite a few bags that were purchased and fell apart within the first 6-12 months. While I could go buy a crunchbox or juju for a third of this one, I'll gladly pay more for a quality built bag. In my past experiences with Voodoo(Karma bag) and Fade(Crunch), they wore out inside of 18 months. Also given some of the ordering issues people have had with Voodoo lately, I'd be even more hesitant to buy a bag from them. My B-Series is going on three years strong and shows very little sign of wear and tear on it.

Jolt does make a good point, people buy disc's that'll run you $25+ per disc and nobody bats an eye at that.

I have similar thoughts to many of you -- I'm intrigued, but not at a $100 price point.

-I typically use an MVP Voyager. Got it for $80ish on sale when they started transitioning over to making Voyager Pros instead. Great bag, plenty of storage/versatility/bells and whistles especially for the price I paid.
-If I'm playing a really hilly course and I don't need as much storage, then I'll sometimes carry my old Dynamic Discs Trooper instead. $40 entry level bag won't hold up forever, but it's fine for periodic use and it's super lightweight.
-If I'm doing fieldwork or going minimalist then I use one of those 8 disc Kestrel bags from Amazon. I think I paid <$20. Was my first bag.

The G Series bag would fill a nice gap between my Kestrel and Trooper. It'd likely be my travel bag for work trips and vacations. There are times I want to carry a couple more discs than a Kestrel allows, but not go all the way up to a Trooper or Voyager since both really function best at 18+ discs. I don't mind paying $100 for a bag, but not for one that would only get situational use from me.

Man, I love the idea of this bag, but can't justify the price point when I already have an ax-15. Maybe when they inevitably put it on sale like Grip always does.
