Anyone keeping an eye on a 2013 bag?

21 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone had their eye on a 2013 carry/stand bag with a 14-way divider. If so, could you suggest one for me, a mostly walker, sometimes cart-er? I had a Callaway Diablo Edge stand bag but got a very generous offer from a fellow Sand Trapper so I'm now in the market for a new bag.

I tried out the Nike Performance Carry 2012 but the colors clashed with my clubs, and the rumors are true: the base is not very cart friendly.

I really liked the 2012 Grom XX from Ogio but I saw that the 2013 ones should be out soon with improved straps.

Price range is below $250. Thank you!

Mizuno has come out with some Aerolite bags with some pretty interesting designs lately.  One of them has a pair of battling samurai and kanji on it that Im seriously considering getting.

I am also in the market.  From what I understand Ogio has improved the stand system as well on the 2013 bags.

Really? That would make a difference to me. It seems like Ogio already has the thick stands and good rubber pieces that make ground contact that I prefer (compared to the Nike Performance Carry) but it seems like it doesn't extend enough and would be unstable. What in particular are they changing with the stand?

I can't seem to find any photos of this. Do you happen to have any, Gaijin?

I was just looking at the Sun Mountain bags a few weeks back... They are damn nice for a carry bag.  Check them out.

Yeah, a Titleist 14way.  It bothers me that I have a Tmade bag with no TaylorMade clubs.  As I will be upgrading my irons to Titleist as well next season.

The Manager at the Edwin Watts store locally told me he met with Ogio execs and was told they are going with a system more like Sun Mtn & Ping use.  I have a 2010 Ogio bag, and I really do not like the stand.  However a friend of mine just bought the 2013 Nimbus bag and it has a much improved system.

tgw has a smallish image of the samurai Aerolite bag [ MIZUNO AEROLITE [X] STAND BAG SAMURAI ].  But when you click to view the image or Check Stock it seems it is not yeat available.  Too bad, because the artwork is very detailed and needs a ZOOM feature

I want a Cobra stand/cart bag - not a staff bag though because they're way too big and bulky for what I need to carry. Though I may go with a '13 Ogio. A buddy of mine bought the 2012 Assassin and it's gorgeous - hoping for a '13 remake.

I've been back and forth between an Ogio and SunMountain... I'm really digging the SunMountain Hybrid as most of my rounds are with a cart so I'm not as worried about the additional weight as long as I have the carry option.

I always have bag envy. I love to look at them in the store and want to take one home. Then I think about how many rounds I could play with that money and the fact that my bag works fine now and I end up keeping mine and playing more. There is only so much gear switching my wife will put up with and I think a bag upgrade is one too many.

The 14way is a great bag and I love mine, but if you want to save a couple bucks get the sun mountain Four 5 it's essentially the same exact bag you're just not paying the premium for the Titleist name.

Yeah but I can get this bag at a discount through someone in the industry, also by next season most of clubs will be Titleist once the irons come in only the wedges won't match.

I'm always somewhat in the market for a new bag. My current Ogio is only a year old but the legs are a little wonky.

I want a Llama or Sherpa by MacKenzie from the Walking Golfer. Not a 14-way but I love the classic look and they are very light. No legs-very minimalist but classy. Just can't decide which I want, and bite the bullet on the $235.

At that price Peter Jacobsen should deliver it in person.

I you want fairly light weight, 14 way stand bag, the Sun Mountain Four5 is the way to go... I love mine and before I had this one I had a Titleist Premium 14way which is essentially the same bag. Sun Mountain also makes the hybrid bag, which is a 14 way stand bag but it is a bit heavier. You can think of it like this, the Hybrid is more of a cart bag with legs whereas the Four5 is a larger stand bag that fits well on a cart.

      Where they let Rickie take that drop from is some BS. He should've been further back.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      He said something like "even your typical PGA Tour player these days would have been a superstar in my day." His point was that there are a TON more talented players who are far better than the guys he played against. I don't think it's quite as exaggerated as you might, but I also really don't care to get into it too deeply. The strength of field is multiple times stronger today than in 1968. There weren't that many overseas players. Or players in the U.S., for that matter. That alone accounts for strength of field differences. Very few foreign players came over to play on the PGA Tour. The money wasn't that good, unless you were one of the top players. It wasn't like it is today, and travel was still expensive. There's a reason players back then had to carpool, share hotel rooms, etc. Just look at the basic numbers. Once you get past the top one, two, maybe three players… it's folly to suggest it was likely that the top 15 players out of 1.5 million players is at all on the same level as the top 15 players from 100 million golfers. It's possible but highly, highly, highly unlikely. Furthermore, golf has attracted more and better athletes recently, too, which wasn't anywhere near as true in the 1960s. I get it. People like to romanticize the past. But the games and athletes move on and get better. That's irrelevant. He could only beat who he played against, and the truth is, he didn't beat weaker competition more often than Tiger Woods except in majors, he didn't win more money titles, more scoring titles, more individual awards, have higher margins of victory, etc. than Tiger Woods, all against weaker (Nicklaus's) competition. Jack might have chosen football if he grew up today. He might have been a career Web.com Tour player. Or he might have won 23 majors because he was that good and the modern advancements would have helped him that much. We don't know. It's pointless to speculate, IMO. I think the depth of field still matters and mattered in the majors. Even in the Opens. Even in events including only the top 50 players, there's still a big gap in depth from the 60s to the 00s.

      Come on guys, I'm missing the 1st quarter of the Super Bowl. That being said, I think Fowler just sent his chances to a watery grave.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      I'd be curious to see just what Jack said. I think "10 or 15" having a chance to win for typical PGA Tour events in any era is an exaggeration of the relative weakness of the fields. Even before there was a depth of talent in the U.S. and the 'golf craze' here took off, the money drew top level golfers from overseas who were following the better money available here in tournaments and pro positions. I accept there's been a general strengthening of fields as the expansion in prize money and the total population of competitive golfers (see chart below) have forced top golfers to have more preparation and polish, but I don't think there's really ever been a lack of generally elite level competition on the PGA tour or at the Majors since about the 20's or 30's. I think if the effect of a tiny number of truly top level competitors taking on a bunch of club pro relative 'dubs' was as strong as you seem to think that most of the top multiple Major winners would be golfers from the early days of the tour. But to me it looks pretty balanced across eras. I'll see if I can work up some actual numbers. By the 1920s there were likely about 1.5 million golfers (in the U.S. alone), which is a pretty healthy base from which to draw potential 'top talent'. Total participation in golf from when Jack started to when Tiger started roughly tripled. As far as rating 'achievement' you play in the era you play with the existing disadvantages and advantages. IMO, if Jack had grown up as a contemporary of Tiger with the same advantages of technology and swing instruction / coaching and the same disadvantages of a greater number of potential competitors that they would both have risen to elite levels and would have regularly been battling for Amateur and Major Championships. I don't think the potential ranges of human abilities / talent really change much in a few generations. Would I consider Tiger more competitively vetted, yes. Do I think that means his talent level and achievements were automatically greater than Jack's? No. I could see valuing Tiger's win total more than Jack's (and certainly Snead's with some 'iffy' events in the total) because of the relative talent base depth, but not sure that transfers as readily to the performance in Majors, particularly the Opens. I think it would have been amazing and exciting to be able to see them compete at their peaks rather than a boring foregone conclusion.
