It's Celebration. It's good but i'd say that after six years it's not as savory as when it was opened. Had it been bottle conditioned for six years it could be awesome. So i'm not sure if it's 6 years of celebrating with that bottle. It's a long time with just one beer unless he was being unfaithful :-D
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I got a dual pack several years ago and immediately fell in love. The thing is just comfortable and carries the things I need/want. And it's basically indestructable. The only complaint I see with the dual packs is that the colors fade sometimes. I bought white so my only issue was that it started getting permanent dirt stains.

So I sold it for $100 and bought a black used one for $100 and figure I'll easily get several more years out of it. I'm not in love with the grip bags (less comfortable and a little small for my tastes). I agree that Revo seems like they are almost trying to fail with their (lack of) customer service, availability, and innovation.

When I buy my next bag I will still consider revolution first.

That's another thing, as the sport expands and the industry legitimizes, golfers will begin to expect the level of customer service that is present in other non-dg companies. I'm not saying that this will be the demise of revo (obviously, many golfers who are loyal to their product will promote and exhibit its quality), but with new golfers coming onto the scene everyday, they are being bombarded with great information and communication on these forums which should endear them towards those companies that are actively marketing and communication with them.

To answer the question. No. I think Voodoo is the way to go if your looking for this style bag today. For the price and features its a much better choice.

With that said, I still feel lucky to have picked up a Revo Pro bag 2 years ago for about $90 before they stopped making them and increased the price.
The bag basically looks like I just bought it minus a little wear on the bottom where the frame rubs. I just picked up my first pair of Phenix Quads for it and expect to continue using this bag on short rounds and hot days in the summer.

Pretty sure the responses were answering the question in the OP.

But to answer your question, yes, it is possible. I don't know where to get them in the States, but not too long ago Discmania.fi got some more of them after they'd been sold out for close to a year. They must still be producing the bags.
