Really like your stile of review

Looks like a few steps forward and a few steps back vs the AX15

That front pocket on the AX15 is the thing i miss the most on the Octothorpe. . so odd that they changed that pocket
The "double zipper flap" on the AX15 was really frustrating, but the new design on the AX4 don΄t really look that great either

Doth...

The one thing I don't think you mentioned in the video, was whether you feel this bag is a value at $230?

What's your thoughts on the quality and features of the bag at this price point?

For the bag and rain fly I paid $257.
I think it is an excellent value at this price.
There are not many bags right at this price point to compare against, and only 2 that I have owned and tested. Those 2 being the Gorilla Boy Simian and the Pound Carlton.
So if we are talking value compared to bags at the same price point then I think the Grip AX4 is the best value of these 3.
The Carlton is more comfortable on the back, the Simian is an amazing comfortable seat, the AX4 is the best overall layout and design for good usable item storage and simple straightforward disc storage.
The Simian and Carlton a very unique in their design and they will have a well deserved following because of this uniqueness. The AX4 is a workhorse that does it all(not a great seat) and is now more comfortable than before.
The grip bags remain the easiest to recommend to the average player.
If they go on sale and get closer to $200 then its an insane value.

What bag is better in almost every way? The Octothorpe. Its an extra $50 to $150 over the AX4 so I cant really include it in the same value comparison but the Octo is NICE!

Hope this helps

I believe you but their website is concerning saying they only put out just handfuls at a time. I understand it's a small company.

Since I realized I'm not a cart person & need to carry more discs for tournaments I think the new BX2 is probably my best bet. Upgrading from the last generation C series.

I don't think I'd even sell the C Series because it's such a good bag beyond golf too. Putting practice days with the dog (+ dog stuff) or hiking.

If you are thinking of keeping the C bag so that you have the best of both worlds then I would recommend taking a serious look at the AX4. I guess that all depends how many discs you might want to carry in the future on those tournament rounds. The best thing about the BX2 size is that it can do it all, but if you already own the small end of the spectrum then maybe you want to go big so you really get the best of both worlds between those two bags. I love the C+AX combo.

Just got a sand cs2 and I really love it. The new straps are really comfy and I like the new use of the side storage/drink carrier. I can hold 12 in the main compartment 5 mids 6 drivers 1 putter and then 3 putters up top with 2 sticking out.

Sold my AX3 to pick up a BX2. I’m a bit disappointed in some of the upgrades. I can see why they changed some of the padding and definitely think a lot of people will be happy with the changes, but the straps don’t feel as comfortable to me.

I’ll be selling the BX2. Hasn’t seen a course. If anyone is interested in grabbing one that can still be registered in your name, let me know.
