Jeff, it does seem like a good opportunity to address some of the common issues with the TM version. The zippers are problematic for a lot of people, as well as the strap breaking easily.

Will the Trinity version come with the plastic boxes like TM, or the cardboard ones like Sportswerks?

Do u guys do any research before you write stuff on this forum. Thats one of the reason trinity went to EP cells. Was for safety and reliability. Do u really think trinity wants to see someone get injured from a cell.

No offense but how does that show they care? That just shows they dont want to be liable.

As for the bag, I dont know any of the details but Ive had my hardwork copied before. It sucks to put a lot of effort and thought into something to have someone rip it off. Hopefully thats not the case here.

You are worried about companies offering the same duffle bag? There are much worse travesties in our industry.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=185560

When the technology leaders have all been undercut by mass market knockoffs there will be nothing left to copy, no innovation and no advancements…
But at least it will all be cheap and there will be a choice of colors!!!

Anybody know where to get these bags? We need one in black in Red

Jeff,

All I want to know is:

IF this bag has the same dimensions as the Team Magic/Sportwerks bag, where can I get some of those plastic boxes? I'm sure Sarquis will know.

Notice how I did not say anything about copying

See you in a few days

Bags and zippers are specifically why Trinity got Dieter, Kinwald and Lemiux back, just for that speciality.


Man I just couldn't resist, my bad.

Sorry Ernie.

It shows they care if Trinity feels that the cells they sell now are more reliable than IB cells. Trinity made a decision to stock the new cell and thats their way forward in business

As for the bag, if its known to be a quality product, as always with anything in life, people will buy it

Im not sponsored by Trinity, but to me, who cares what they sell? If TM have copyrighted the bag and the Trinity version is a direct copy then thats not on. But, as I doubt thats likely, I dont see an issue
