I'm with rdub in the matter that I also really enjoy sog products. Out of this new batch the Powergrab, Sync I, and the Baton Q1 look like they'll be getting a chance in my pockets. the Sync and Baton are both interesting designs so getting them in hand will be the only way to fully see the execution of those designs. Also, I am thrilled to see SOG get rid of those annoying studs they put on the Powerplay  :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: The studs made the entire thing a no go for me. Looks like the Powergrab has sliders  :gimme:

all in all I like where they're going. Are the smaller components going to be interchangeable? I've never been a fan of they're files. So it'd be nice to put a saw there instead.

Are the Flash 1 and Mini Aegis in the catalog? Didn't see them?

They don't appear to be, or at least I couldn't see them either

IIRC the Aegis and Aegis mini are being discontinued   :think:

I think I can see why the PowerPlay tabs might be frustrating, but the PowerGrab sliders don't look very robust to me.

None of this years new SOG tools has a saw, which I found a little surprising

Maybe they are going back to the drawing board with their saw design, which was always a little too fat, despite being otherwise well thought out.

I spoke to SOG about release dates, and they don't have anything specific just yet.  They did say that they should be along by the end of the 1st Quarter, with the Baton series in the 2nd Quarter, probably May or June.

Subject to change without notice of course.  :D

Forgot to post here but I did get a reply from SOG

Thanks for contacting SOG.  At the moment the PowerGrab and PowerAccess do not feature interchangeable components.

Kind of a bummer...but that won't stop us from trying  >:D >:D >:D

Power Grab components look just like Power Lock ones from what you can see. Looks like it would be pretty easy to take apart the Power Grab.

I wonder why we haven't seen anything from SHOT regarding the PowerAccess and PowerGrab. Seems strange that they will apparently be ready for sale by end of first quarter, but no push at SHOT. Maybe 8 new multitools was too much to release in one year? Maybe they believe that the PA and PG will "sell themselves" and that they can keep the limelight of SHOT2017 on the quirky items that they perceive as being a tougher sale? Perhaps they are just waiting until tomorrow and staging a big reveal for them? I dunno, I am anxious to see video of the new traditional multitools from SOG

Ive been wondering thatk myself rdub. I think you might be onto something with the too many tools therory, since most reviewers only seem willing to give a couple minutes to the multitool manufacturers, OG doesn't want too many cooks in the kitchen spoiling the pot, so to speak (especially since they have a fairly large new knife collection too)

SOG posted a short video on their twitter account that showed the PowerAccess and PowerGrab are on display at SHOT. But I have found no videos showcasing them. Everything has been Batons and Syncs. That is pretty disappointing, and I fear that releasing so many new tools in the same year may ultimately mean slower sales starting off as consumers have to pick and choose.

And I'll run the Powergrab into the ground  :salute:

They are probably assuming the two new multis will sell themselves, so it makes sense they are showcasing the more innovative tools. I am still looking forward to some of the others but the Powergrab is on my list. I'll also be looking to replace that file with the v-cutter if possible  :whistle:

It'd be cool if the knives could be replaced. Get those outside-access scissors that we all covet
