Grip: More sturdy material, more sturdy plastic parts (from what I've seen, especially the rails on the bottom). Rides really well. Expensive and not too much room though.

Prodiscus: Bigger, prettier (colors), cheaper, still plenty sturdy. From what I've heard it rides really well too. Finnish. =)

Grip: more of a disc backpack. Carries discs and a few other things.

Prodiscus: carried discs, drinks, 3 days worth of rations and 4 changes of clothes.

I wish there was an in between in size. Like a grip disc size with a little more room for other stuff. The prodiscus is just too big for what I want.

You don't have to pack it full though, and it's not impossibly huge on the outside.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure the Revo backpack falls in that gap.

Simian is too bulky, and I HATE the revo backpack. The prodiscus just seems too bulky, but has features I like. Meh. 99% sure I'm getting a grip again

The extra room would have come in handy carrying my frog togs and such trying to play in a downpour this weekend, taking them off and putting back on. Other than that, I've been pretty happy with the room of the Grip.

Would love to have better color selection, but in terms of the bag itself I'm content with the Grip.

^^^^

Exactly. I don't want the extra width of more disc space and extra pockets the prodiscus has, but I wouldn't mind just a smidgen bigger side pockets on the grip.
