The shift would be a great investment then I have a blacked-out shift v6 that I carry for a few of our local courses. These courses all share the same disc needs...nothing but straight discs and nothing over a speed 10. I've even loaded the thing up with 18 disc's for my Colorado trip this past summer and it still carried amazingly light when compared to other brand bags.

Been using my Shift for a bit since I needed to send my Octothorpe out for repairs (one of the button snaps didn't disengage and pulled out of the shoulder strap)

I remember why I like this bag so much. It's very light even with 18 discs and full 40oz hydroflask, and very comfortable for my smaller frame. The only downsides for me are twofold: 1. the sweet spot for my loadout is 20 discs and 2. I drink and carry a lot more water when I can use a water bladder (which doesn't seem to work well in the shift, takes up a lot of the interior storage) I'll hold on to it until I order a Carlton, and at that point I'll probably sell both Shift and Octothorpe.

Interesting that UPD have invested in advertising on the MVP open live coverage, yet have no product available to sell....

When I go to their website I see some models not sold out. https://upperparkdesigns.com/collections/bags

Maybe it changed recently?

The shift and the pinch both have been the ones that have been there for a while now. I've had my Pinch for about a year, and all though I'm looking at other options, as the Pinch is a bit heavy when completely loaded, I will say it's a really decent bag that has held up to major use over the last year. I play at least twice to four times a week, sometimes more between jobs, and the only real sign of usage is water staining on the bottom and the front zipper pocket.
I'm getting a cart this winter but I do plan on keeping the Pinch because of how well it holds up.

I probably won't get another UPD bag though do to my own self righteousness , but I would recommend the Pinch if your in the market.

When my wife ordered me a shift for fathers day it didn't show up for 3 weeks. So she contacted UPD and they said they would look right into it, following this we heard nothing for another two weeks, even when we emailed again asking what was up. Finally, we contested the charge and 3 days after a mangled box with a shift thrown in it arrived. Color me unimpressed with this company. Too bad because it is a nice bag minus the atrocious customer service. Hope you have a less annoying time with receiving yours.

Ok, my apologies, there are a couple of models not sold out, but the majority are and stock doesn’t seem to be getting replenished or updated.

I know the guy who owns it has been super busy with his Discraft job and they've been smashing it out the park on the marketing front this year, so I understand the pressures, but even he admits to neglecting UPD and that it's not his priority.

Which is why I find it odd to be buying advertising slots on the live coverage with limited range of models available and no signs of updates.

Unless he's looking to have a final push to sell everything then shut up shop??

This has happened before when this same guy ran out the models before updating them. I wonder if he is doing the sell off before closing shop or selling off the bags before updating them?

I think that somewhere on here in this thread the owner of Upper Parks said he wanted to merge with Discraft and partner to get his bags with the Discraft name on them. I also take this to mean using the same outsource place as Discraft is using with the modern tournament bags that have the single strap on them.

Probably trying to sell out the remaining stock.

Interesting to see if the company changes hands in the near future.
