What's the verdict, how has it held up over the past couple years for those who have it?
Worth the 200$+ to buy it?
I like the Grip, but I'd seriously consider a Physical Flight Challenger Pak first (http://www.physicalflightdg.com
) first for a few reasons: getting discs out of the edges is easier with a non-rounded corner, the bag sits taller so you can more easily reach your putters or pick up the bag without bending over, the bag holds a disc or two more (not counting the top and added side storage), and I like the storage options a bit more. You can also get it in colors you like, and the bags are all made in the U.S. and have a lifetime warranty (as does the Grip). The customer service is better.
They feel great too.
Note that these are SMALL differences, but they add up.
The downside is no rainfly (they recommend you put an umbrella in, which works okay - I recommend a taller umbrella for easier use) and the cup holders aren't insulated.
You can't go wrong with either. I have a ProDiscus too and it eliminates some of the small downsides of the Grip but adds its own list (the putter pocket doesn't stand up, the top pouch doesn't velcro back, the rounded corners are still there, etc. Still a pretty great bag.
