Meanwhile my (more trendy) competitors were forced to carry the layers that wouldn't fit in the much smaller side pockets of their Grip bags. I'm not saying the Grip isn't a good bag. But for Midwestern golf (where the weather can change drastically from morning to afternoon) the Flak is a better solution, at least for me.

That said, I would like an update from the guys at Hyzer Bomb regarding the aforementioned upgrade/exchange program.

I'm in Wisconsin and I totally get where you're coming from with the temperature swings (it was 30 degrees when I woke up at 9am this morning and is now 52 degrees) can fit a light fleece AND a hoodie (size Large) in my Grip A Series. I wasn't able to do that with my L Series.

The added space without adding a lot of bulk to the bag is great.

That said, I used to really liked the look of the Flak. Once Millennium put their name on it (where they put it, the bland font, etc), though, I felt it got less aesthetically pleasing.

The bag itself looked solid, though.

I don't really mind the embroidered logo on the front. But, its small enough that anyone that doesn't like it could probably cover it with a patch or two. To me, it is much more understated than the huge Grip logos on the A-Series. Again, nothing wrong with it, they probably lead the pack in product recognition because of it.

As for the storage, I'm a bigger guy and wear a thick, XL hoody. So, I don't think it would fit in the side pockets of the Grip. It would be really great if Grip offered a couple different versions/models of the bag, including one with a larger upper storage pocket, but they don't.

I also love the side putter pockets on my Flak. All around, the layout of the bag is perfect for me, we just need to get the few issues resolved and it will be perfect all around.

I agree with you here. As for the storage on top I utilized that well at a tournament 2 weeks ago. When I had the Grip A Series bag, it was tough stuffing a Large Hoodie into one of the side pockets and when you did thats all that could be in it. With the Flak 3, I had a hoodie, some snacks, wallet, phone, keys in the top. Now, if they can get back to us on this upgrade deal I already have someone interested in my current bag.

Come on HB! Looks like at least a few are awaiting the 3rd run upgrade info!

The top storage area on mine is definitely sweet. Comparing that to a friend's new A-series and the Flak definitely has it beat in that area.

I have realized that the problems with my bag are minor in the scheme of things after playing more rounds. However it would be nice not to have to decide what to put in the top compartment based mostly on weight and a fear of eminent collapse. My makeshift anti-poke bottom setup isn't winning any style points either or getting many customers for HB in my area after I explain the reason for it.

Since it has been several weeks with no reply from them, I have given up mostly on being fully satisfied with my purchase, and just telling people that ask me just to drop the extra cash on a Grip or Mahal.

I have sent several emails to them and have not recieved a single response. Maybe it's my spam filter but it seems others have been in the same boat. Mainly I have posted on this thread recently since it seemed a month ago they were active/monitoring it.

I realize now I should have just returned it before I used it. It's an adequate bag but for the price I wanted more. I am probably not even interested in giving them too much more money at this point so I should probably just forget about the exchange program and make do. Like I said in an earlier post I just did not expect the making do feeling in this price range for any type of gear.

I think I was just hoping after having to jimmy rig my brand new 200 dollar bag that they would come out on here and take care of their customers quickly and generously. At least throw some of us a bone and let us know what future options may be. I will probably either sell mine or just live with it.
