Bags: decide between Sun Mountain three 5 DLX and Srixon Ogio Grom (old version?)

7 posts in this topic

Hello forum

I am new to this forum but would like to pose a question conerning the decision between two distinct bags.

The one ist the Sun Mountain three 5 DLX

It´s lightweight but the material somewhat feels cheap.

The other bag would be a Srixon Ogio Grom :

This bag definitely looks like an Ogio Grom, but I am not sure from wich year/season. Does anyone know?

Here I like the gadgets and well-thought pockets.

I may get both for a similar price but can not realy decide. Especially as I am not sure how to think of the Srixon/Ogio.

Can you guys help me?

Thanks in advance!

Tom, thanks for your opinion!

How about functions like zippers, materials, weight, pockets etc.? Does anyone have an opinion on that?

I would really love to know how old this srixon bag really is i.e. in which season it came out. to me it seems like an 2011 model...

Thanks and all the best!

I have the 3.5 DLX 2012 version and it is an excellent all around bag - materials are fine, pockets, double zippers, personals pocket.

It doubles a a cart bag with an inner sleeve for the top strap and cart friendly bottom. You can also fit plenty of clubs - nice top.

The hip pad is padded nicely and airy - the shoulder straps are very comfy.

And they are on closeout in some places.

This is my primary bag - when I start walking the course again, I will use a Swift X Zero G - because I like the hip belt to take weight off my shoulders - middle aged golfer wants lite weight and no shoulder pressure.

But I give kudos to the 3.5 DLX as an all around bag.

    • do we really need fancy putters
      I guess this is where the old saying "never sell or give away a putter" comes from. If what you're using goes sour, you'll have something in your closet that will work!
    • What do you HATE the most about golf?
      Of course we don't hate golf overall, only on certain days. When you have a bad day, what do you hate most about golf? For me it's probably when starting the round off well, thinking "this is going to be a great round", only to hit a few shanks in a row and ruin everything. You get your hopes up, and then your hopes get crushed. So I guess how hard it is to get consistency in my shots. That's really what I hate about golf.
    • The Biggest Secret? SLIDE Your Hips
      I see this is an "oldie but goodie", and I certainly didn't want to wade through 46 pages of content. But just from reading the title of the thread, and this last page, I second that emotion. You have to slide your hips before you turn them! But, how much? I used to do a drill I called the "door jamb" drill. You would set up in an empty door jamb with the outside of your left foot, for a right hander, up against the jamb. You would mimic a swing, and, on the down swing, let your hips "slide" until your left hip hit the jamb. Only then would you start to turn your hips. This puts your left hip directly above your left foot. Thinking back, I used to play a lot of golf with a friend who moved West many years ago. Big guy, 6'4" and 220, but basically an arms and upper body swinger. He could still hit the ball long, but once in a while, by accident, he'd get his lower body involved and then he would crush it like Daly! Every time he did that I'd tease him by saying, "Yeah! You really got your big, fat, left ass cheek into that one, dintcha?!"
    • Reading Greens
      Speaking of stopping half way, I got some of my best reads today by walking halfway between the ball and hole and just taking a look. I was playing in an informal 2 man scramble with some buds for the grand prize of beers and dogs! On the very first hole, an easy par 5, we're putting for eagle. I putt first, and 3 feet from the hole we think the ball is in. A foot from the hole it breaks right and I graze the edge. I mark, and stand aside while my buddy putts. I'm about halfway and from there I can clearly see the subtle little mound in the green that the cup was cut in. You could not see it from behind the ball. Believe me, we checked! I've long been a proponent of letting my feet inform my brain, but if your eyes can't see everything then your feet can't feel everything. They have to work together to get the best read.
    • A Forum Just for Golfing?
      I'm not sure how this applies to my response?  I said if there were something free I'd use it vs build it and, if I wanted to build something just for the heck of it, I would expect that to be free or almost free as well.  This is true, is it not?  I don't consult on how to build internet forums . . . why would I know anything about what free forum software comes with hosting servers?  I assume there is some.
