It's hard for me to believe that the Trinity T8, Team Magic, Venom bags aren't manufactured by the same company? They are identical accept for the colors. To tool and manufacture the same bag is not a cheap process.... That being said I own the Trinity T-8 bag and after two months both the zippers on the front have the pull points broken off from normal using carrying a touring car

Sorry, but they're all made in the same place and are virtually identical save for colors and a few other minor things. My TM bag has fallen apart just like others are describing with the other bags. I bought my father the Trinity bag and it's the same as my bag, except it hasn't fallen apart, yet...

Don't get me wrong, overall they're great bags. However, the construction is somewhat cheap, seams fall apart, and zippers break.

I m sorry that your sorried

if you put a Trinity bag next to the Magic or Protek, you can't say it's same thing. first of all tRIPnity bag have a fragile plastic handle on a sh-ity bag and the Magic and a protek sharing hard anodised metal handle to begin with. rest of craftmanship and meterail is totaley diffrent with that POS trinity one. have it side by side and you can see clearly, dont waste your $200 on T bag what will breaks like a Tea bag

Some people don't realize the zippers lock on the TM bag or its copies. Zipping up/down and swiveling the zipper will cause breakage over time. Even so, one should be able to find a place to repair zippers.

i think your confused, the current trinity bag (at the 1/8 scale bag) is the teammagic bag, aluminum metal handle and all. my personal experience includes the trinity bag and the racer's edge bag.

the racer's edge bag is a little clunkier but definitely more durable.

I stands correct, a trinity T8 bag is the bad copy, aka don't buy it

trinity F8 bag is a same exact thing as the Team magic bag, buy that if you like there black color bag

thanks AVS!
