dont see anything that separates it from the group now that frames are becomming more common. the gateway tour has been around for a while...
I think revolutions new frame seems alot more functional as well.

Its great they finally have released a bag that might actually hold up... time will tell

My old innova tour bag fell apart after 2 months of moderate use... Its a shame they took so long to answer the cries for a better bag...

Mine did the same thing, I called up Innova and they told me to take pictures, e-mail the pictures to them, and I gave them my address and they sent me a new bag. They even let me keep the ripped bag.

Man that new bag looks sweet. That neoprene on the bottom has to increase the cost. And about time they make a square top. I wouldn't mind getting it, but I'll be getting me a Gateway bag here soon.

I like the look of it, but I have a feeling they will be asking to much. Once I have the funds, I think I am going to get a revo. I am using the lightning large tour bag right now. For the $, it has been great, the only place it is showing wear is the dividers, but I am going to make a frame for it anyway.

i doubt price will be the deciding factor in it. it'll prolly carry an MSRP of around $70 (assuming the quads pictured won't be included, but if they are, more like $95)..

the bag there looks like a duffel bag i got at wal mart for $9 (seriously, it's like, identical, which leads me to believe it was probably made by the same overseas manufacturer).

what i don't seem to understand about innova's bags is that people seem to give them the overwhelming benefit of the doubt. i'd be more concerned that they've never had a bag that lasted more than 2 years of moderate to heavy use since the old blue deluxe bags that were a knock off on the skysouth bag (vinyl material w/ attached shoulder strap). if this bag doesn't rival the durability of bags in the $50-60 price range (pdga, revo club bag, gds weekend dlx) it will all be for not.

if they had to earn your trust they would HAVE to put out a much better bag just to compete.

i'm anticipating the new ching bag, which will be a rival to the PDGA bag.

I'm guessing that since those quad straps say Innova, they will be included? Sounds like this bag may hold up better than previous Innova bags did. If you don't currently own a revolution bag, it may be worth a try.

After owning several innova bags though, I think I'll stick with revolution. The construction will probably ensure that I will have this bag for a long time (probably the rest of my life) unless it is stolen.

I would be wary about the bag unless it looked like the construction were on par with the Revolution bag but much cheaper; I think cordura is what makes it strong as well as the vinyl on the bottom.

If it is priced similarly to the rev bags, I would go with Revolution.

Incidentally, we were talking about quality vs price on the course a couple of months ago. the guy had the latest Innova bag. He had to replace it this summer he said something to the effect of, "I like getting new gear; you'll be stuck with that bag forever."

I hope he's right....
