These things need to hurry up and get here. I feel like Cartman waiting for the Wii to be released.

I always want to buy a new bag but I do not need too. I would for surely support the local bag seller from wisconsin if I were to buy a new bag, but this bag does look very nice.

Heh, you shoulda been on the Simian pre-order list, you ain't got nothin' on that yet. I was tempted to pre-order one of these but rationality took over, at least for a bit. I'm going to hold off for a little while, at least until more colors are offered.

You're a stronger willed man than I am. I've gone through a Lightning Large, Carolina, Revo Mini, 2x Revo Deluxe Mini, and finally found a keeper for the past year with the Phenix Streamline. My brother has a GB Spider Monkey and a Chimp which I've sampled as well. I've also come close to pulling the trigger on both a Dual Pack and Simian, but they both look a little clunky and cumbersome for my tastes. The Streamline is set up about as good as it can be for a glorified box with some quads on it, but this Grip backpack looks to take it to the next level. The chair/umbrella vertical attachment points on the sides look particularly useful, and things like putter pockets and storage pockets appear to be well placed for easy access and good weight distribution.

Rationality and I have parted ways when it comes to shiny new, bigger stronger faster stuff to hold my disc equipment. I'm actually more interested in the smaller capacity Grip bag, but who wants to wait that long. I figure if this one is too big I will get a smaller one down the line and my friends will have to have a deathmatch to see who gets to buy the full size one off me. Pretty soon when I go out golfing it will be hard to spot the guy who's not toting one of my old disc bags.

I've been holding out for this bag. JATwater is a smart kid and has been working on this for awhile. When he states that every bag out there is junk, it makes me excited to see what he has to offer.

Yeah, I'm really liking the looks of it, that vid pointed out some of the features pretty well. I really like how he's made the pockets, both the long side pockets (with internal pockets) and the upper one. I wish the vid had shown more of the other side of the bag, like the straps and bottle holders, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be a matter of "when" instead of "if" when it comes to me buying one.

You didn't stand a chance from the moment the pics were on fb. Atwater might as well count his money from you right now.

You can see someone wearing one of those bags in the Japan Open final 9 vid. On a person that isn't Avery Jenkins, the bag looks pretty bulky. Like, as bulky as a Dual Pack.
