WOW, need I say more. It is probably cheap and going to break like everything else they sell.

Copy of the TM bag with crappy zippers, side strap that serves no purpose, etc. Don't get me wrong, the TM bag is nice but definitely could use some improvement, given the price.

Note that Racers Edge sells a similar bag to the TM bag. Has 3 wide drawers instead of the split drawers. Is a bit cheap also.

My Sportwerks bag has the three drawers in it like the Racers Edge one as well. That is how that bag came from day one, except they chose to use cardboard drawers instead of plastic. I put the plastic ones in mine now, but the whole thing needs to be replaced. It is in bad shape in that the handle mount is detached from the main body and the original zipper blew out on the one side. I have had if for quite a few years though, so it has served me well.

Trinity was having a liquidation sale last week, the TM bags were on sale for $149. The HARD racing tire truer was on sale for $179 and the HARD comm lathe was going for $149. The trinity site right now doesn't have any TM or HARD racing stuff on it any longer.

Though they still have the TM bag for $154.

By side strap I meant the vertical strap on the handle side that goes over the two pockets. At least on my bag if you put hardly anything in the pockets the strap is not long enough to velcro through the plastic loop.

Aren't those to attach the TX and Starter bags?

Well if Trinity cut out the middle man so to speak then the bags should be cheaper since one less company needs to make money off of them.

So Let me get this straight...

Trinity Distributes Team Magic...

They figure out just how popular TM's bags are...

They go around TM and straight to the place who manufacturers the bags and cut a deal...

They dump TM and start producing an exact copy of TM's bags pretty much stealing TM's idea...

Since Trinity has the clout that TM doesn't have they can now squash TM's share of the market...

Pretty screwed up if you ask me...

People wonder why us "old timers" hate Trinity...
