what bag do you rock? - Page 7
Sun Mountain 2012 Hybrid bag,superior craftsmanship and storage but the footprint isn't the best on carts,can start to twist when pushing and riding. http://www.sunmountain.com/hybrid-black-gunmetal-yam-detail.html
- looks fantastic in white
- very light bag
- plenty of storage
- comfortable straps
- divider setup is really odd
- no tee or ball storage on the outside of the bag
- has a million useless loops along the middle of the bag that are just that, useless.
Overall I like the bag but wish I did more research on the bag before buying it. I based it mostly on the looks which is a common mistake I made with women.
I have an Oggio Syncro. I had not purchased bags in quite some time and was very pleased with all the features. I discovered a "hidden pocket" today. An interior zipper (difficult to find) that if unzipped permits access to the inside of the bag i.e. you can feel the support rods and your clubs as well as a nylon webbing that hold the clubs from striking bottom. I had never seen this before and I am assuming it is there to allow access to the inside of the bag should something drop in there. Or maybe I am just out of touch and this is a common thing or has another purpose?
I just got my new Callaway XTT Xtreme Stand bag in the mail today. I think I got a good price for it as I ordered it through my company for $130 (Golfsmith lists it at $169). The only catch is that the company logo automatically comes on the bag. I'll be using it for the first time tomorrow morning. Upon initial inspection, it seems like a good bag. My old bag had 14 club dividers - this one has 7. It'll be interesting to see how I like that change. The other thing that was interesting is that this bag has an elastic/bungee type of string attached to the bag for your towel. I guess you tuck one end of the towell under the string to hold it there. My golf towel is standard sized, but the string is only 4 inches or so wide. I had to fold my towel in half twice in order to get it under the string. I found that strange.
I'm replacing a TourTek stand bag. After using the TourTek for just 1 1/2 years, I now believe the saying, "you get what you pay for," very much applies to golf bags. The cloth that lines the 14 club dividers is in shambles and the straps have mutliple tears in them and look like they could break at any time. I'm hoping the Calloway bag holds up a little better...
