Yep...there was an announcement on Facebook and on the Grip website...195 bags left and no production...the lifetime warranty is still good though...which tells me he they may have something new in the works.

Perhaps I don't understand why he's shutting down production. Odd.

Yeah Grip is expanding. I linked the blog announcement from grip a few posts ago. Additionally they've moved into a new HQ building, and they're hiring a new Graphic Arts employee. THey commented  "We arent going anywhere." Lastly, they're signing up Bag Testers to QA the new bag.

My Grip bag is holding it's own quite nicely, and it gets abused often.  I had a revolution bag, and it held up well, but this bag has by far been way superior to anything else that I have had on my back.  Typically I was going through bags about every 18-24 months, and this one is about 14 months so far with no signs of deterioration at all.  So to me that is a MAJOR change in bags to revolutionize it.

No more Grips?  Guess one can go with Big Hyzer or the DD Astronaut bag.  :-)

I think Grip is retooling.  New model year coming out.

Anyone in KC area have a VooDoo Spinal Tap?

Well I played my first round with my new Grip. Pretty nice bag! I am really going to like having options on bags to carry.

No Kelly is tired of getting beat so he has exhausted all his other options trying to catch me, he had to get the same bag as me, thinking it'll give him a chance to get a round or two from me!!! Lol😋
