I still like mine, but I don’t use it like a normal bag. I have it hooked to the back of my Zuca LG Cart as my storage for towels, scorecards, tester discs, hoodie storage, etc. could I have gotten a cheaper option for this? Sure, but I already bought this expensive bag...might as well use it

When you did use it as a single bag, what did you like/dislike?

Likes:
- Very well constructed...just like other grip bags.
- The disc pocket in the primary area is removable.
- The small zipper area on the back side of the bag(This is also a dislike as well). If you have the disc pocket still in the main compartment, the back pocket is still usable and pretty handy.
- The magnetic side pockets are pretty slick
- The zippered stretch pocket/holder is a cool concept.

Dislikes:
- The price tag. I feel like this bag should only cost around $50 instead of the $99 they're currently selling it for.
- While you can rig up quad shocks to the bag, it's not exactly comfortable.
- The small zipper area on the back side of the bag. If you take the disc pocket out of the main disc storage area, then this pocket isn't overly useful.
- Given the limited footprint of this bag, the zippered stretch pocket/holder can only hold a smaller bottle.

In the end, would I buy this bag again? Probably not. I would just go grab some sort of starter bag or if you can find them, a Voodoo Juju or Fade Crunchbox.

I almost bought one of these for a friend when they first came out, but now I'm kind of glad I held off.

I'd really like to see Grip make a quality version of the standard shoulder bag where the top flap just folds over to the side, instead of tucking into the bag. My Innova Standard bag still does the job fine, but it's about as soft as an old sock now.

My only 2 small gripes:
- It only has a D ring on one side of the bag near the top, forcing you to attach quads to the grab handle. This simple oversight baffles me. I'll probably sew one on the other side myself.

- I wish the front pocket was just the slightest bit bigger to accommodate 3 discs. I've been jamming 3 in there trying to stretch it out.

Before winning this bag, I was using a Voodoo Juju almost exclusively for a couple years. After my first round with the G, the Juju was demoted to practice putter bag. The build quality, stability, storage room and versatility of the pockets are what set it apart from the other small bags.

They make for Tool stuff 3 point attachment quad straps mostly to help hold up larger tool belts that when full become too heavy to hold up with just the belt. You can get one of these provided it is the clip on type. https://www.amazon.com/Suspender-poi...09&s=hi&sr=1-2

Ordered one today because I am looking for a shoulder bag. My Crunchbox is in its last legs, and I just need something for those everyday round. I already have a Grip A, a Latitude E3, and the AT Zuca. No regrets in getting them, but I definitely might have spent my money differently.

Backpacks are great for those bigger rounds, but in all honesty, unless I am trying to do everything possible to keep a league or tournament score down, my everyday rounds generally do not call for more than 5-7 discs. A shoulder carried bag keeps me moving faster because of the easier access to grabbing or putting away discs while walking. And yet, as I learned from my Crunch, I need something durable and sturdy with some storage.

Yes, the price tag was very scary, but everything else about the bag seems to be what I am looking for.

Bought mine last year. Practically days after seeing the video. I was really intrigued because I travel a lot & don't always want to haul the cart around.

Was a bit disappointed with the limited disc space - would like to be able to fit at least one more disc in. The putter pocket turns out is too small for my putter - 2011 A/R Zeppelin - to easily slid in & out.

The main thing I do not like about the bag is the strap, or rather how it is just a pain in the arse to adjust every stinking time you pick it up. Sure, I could have the presence of mind to be aware of how I place the bag/strap down each & every time so that it is ready to go. But does one really want to have to think about how they put their bag down? Not me.

Otherwise, it's a nice little bag, but now I only have it to carry my glow round discs.
