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

And what is wrong with Trinity offering a bag with their own logo? Does magic make it? Like they make the sportworks bags? Guys grow up about being Trinity haters. Trinity has brought more good to this hobby than you guys tearing down a brand.

Yes, Team Magic does not make there bags. I got a faulty bag, that was badly made, so my dad and I took pictures and took apart parts of the bag, to show Team Magic, and they requested pictures of other areas of the bag, and it turned out their "manufacturer" wasn't putting the bags together as specified, which lead to faulty bags. So they do not make there bags. And as for being a Trinity hater, I am not really one, but my dad is because of the latter. Team Magic asked Trinity to send me another, but they wouldn't, but it was in the contract to do so if asked and a week later, they stopped distributing Team Magic. I don't hate Trinity exactly but my dad does, and I personally like Team Magic because they handled the situation so well, and sent me a new bag.

Personally I like the TM scheme much better, though I am accustomed to it as I have 2 and use one on a regular basis. IF it uses corrugated plastic boxes, its fine, however I would rather that this specific item was specific to Team Magic as I like most of their tools and bags.

i actually spoke with my contact at trinity today and they told me that their bag is identical to the TM bag they have just cut out the middle man and had the manufacturer produce the bag for them with their logos instead. As far as savings goes i think the bag will go for around the same price if not maybe even a little cheaper, and it should be available in December
