Just to clarify. That is the first run, correct? Have you been in touch with J@? Is he sending out a replacement?

never got confirmation

sent two emails asking about it

he clams on Facebook that everything is wrapping up for 1st run replacements and he is about to do pre-orders

He needs someone else to organize his company because he really doesnt understand that most of his business will be non-pros. If he isn't available to answer email because he is touring, then he shouldn't be the one who is responding to customers. Most of the advertising I see is focused on getting these in the hands of pros and people who play in A Tiers and NT events.


This is what's bugging me more than everything else at this point. He's prioritizing getting them out to the Pro's, over providing the finished bags as fast as fucking possible to those that have already shelled out the cash. I was curios on the second run timeline here thinking back so I just went and had a look...

Posted March 21 2011 - gripeq.com - We cannot release an arrival date yet but it will be this Spring... soon.

Posted March 29 2011 - gripeq.com - The straight talk as of today is that we are scrapping the first run and moving right into a revised second build. Our firm deadline to have this product available is May 31... but we even intend to beat that.

Posted May 24 2011 - gripeq.com - We are on-time and our first shipment will be done by the 31st!

Posted June 23 2011 - gripeq.com - put us back a couple of weeks, but this is nothing even approaching the delays we experienced last year.


hahaha.... yeeeeeeaah. :|

Yes.
No.
No (by extension of the 2nd question).

I won't bother him for a replacement unless it becomes a hindrance in it's use. I frequently put myself in the shoes of the manufacturer and as such I refuse to be the "demon" customer that whines about the stupidest shit and demands a refund/replacement. I'm one of the guys that buys Salomon shoes and does NOT take advantage of the warranty because I know that I destroyed the shoe and it wasn't Salomons fault. Call it silly idealism but I want to believe in things like Lifetime Guarantee's that are there when you NEED them, not there for when you want something new. Obviously greedy companies ruin these guarantee's but frequently so do abusive customers.

thats dumb. a high-end bag shouldnt be ripping after 11 rounds. if im paying that much for a bag, i expect durable construction and design and will hold them to their word. you must be made out of money.

It's functionally sound for now. To demand a replacement at this point would be avaricious. When it ceases to function reasonably to my expectations then I will pursue Jasons lifetime guarantee.

Nope, not made of money.

Looking more and more likely that I'll buy one at the EO. I was aiming for a Dual Pack, but seeing as they're getting next to impossible to find, would require a tiny bit of modding, most likely be less comfortable and actually wouldn't be that much cheaper over here, a 2nd run Grip just keeps sounding better. Factor in my collecting tendencies and love for special editions, I'm most likely going to be rocking a Team EU bag starting next week.

Got my replacement bag today. looks as if it is going to be a much more solid, stronger bag. Only time will tell though.

Same here. I actually sent J@ an email at work asking if I should have a tracking number and when I got home it was there. Another upside is the shirt feels really nice for just a cotton shirt.

So instead of sending those 20 bags to people whove been waiting for several months,the people at worlds get to buy it first? What a joke.

Just removed myself from the waitlist, went with the Mystery Ranch instead, will be at my house in 4-5 weeks. Super good service and prompt up there in Montana.
