Grip bag modification
« on: August 07, 2012, 09:57:09 AM »
This may be a silly question, but is there any issue with modifying a grip bag? I have a contact who would be able to embroider my name and PDGA number on it, but didn't want to get in trouble if I ever saw @water and he gave me trouble for modifying the bag.

Again, I don't think it's a problem and may be a stupid question, but thought if ask everyone's input.

Nothing wrong with personalizing it. People cover up the Grip logo with patches all the time.

As for actual modifications..

Depending if there is a TOS that says otherwise...

I was referring to Tracy's general statement that once you purchase something you can do whatever you want with it.

But we're talking about Grip bags... Anyway, I modified my statement to be specific about disc golf bags.  Is there a warranty offered on the Grip bag?  Do purchasers of a Grip bag have to sign a Terms of Use contract?

Could we be seeing the effects on the younger generation of the endless sea of policies, rules, regulations, laws, ordinances, etc? It's almost as if there's a need or inner urge to be in compliance before any action is performed, their every move, their very existence mapped and plotted by some imaginary higher authority. Fascinating.

I just work in warranty and studied terms of use during PC hardware and networking classes. Anyone who has jailbroken or unlocked an ipod/iphone knows about bricking devices.

Yeah, but you're not exactly tied to anyone's services when you purchase a disc golf bag. It doesn't need system updates and there are no warranty/repair plans that I'm aware of. This is funny stuff, though, so keep it coming. ;D

it's a disc golf bag, for the love of god!

do whatever the heck you want with it, it's yours!  you don't rent it from JAT.

Now, if you're asking if you're voiding any kind of warranty by personalizing it, that's a better question for JAT.

You're taking what I said out of context. I was only referring to Tracy's original comment about general ownership of a product with a TOS.
