Which cart bag

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, so I think I have everything I need to get started.....just need a cart bag as Im using a stand bag on my trolley at the mo and it doesnt sit too well. I have a longridge tri-cart, but dont know if all bags fit all trolleys or which trolley to get. I have about £100 to spend and dont mind 2nd hand from Ebay etc, just want a decent bag.

Titleist Lightweight Cart bag is great. 14 way dividers and a racked top that presents the clubs nicely when on a cart. Putter well (15 slot) and more. One complaint is the towel ring is only on the right side. Wish it had two because my bag is always on the left side of the cart as I face the bags. A left ring would allow the towel to hang to the outside.

 

Sun Mountain's version (C130) is a little boxier looking but has two rings and a slot for the cart strap. They make the Titleist bag.

 

JUST NOTICED YOU SAID TROLLY -- which I think of as a pull cart. I have no idea if the bags above will work with a trolly. They will work great with a buggy (I think that is what you call riding carts).

Ogio makes some really light weight cart bags, they are actually lighter than some of the carry bags.  Can't remember the name of the one that would be perfect fit for a push cart, but I'm thinking that will be my next bag as I don't carry anymore I use a 3 wheel push cart.

I currently have a lightweight cart bag from Ogio....and it's nice overall. It's appearance and the zipperless ball pocket are my favorite features. But my next cart bag is going to be different.   I will ignore any cart bags advertised as "lightweight", "compact", or another other descriptor that should not be applied to a cart bag.  My next cart bag will be very spacious, have large club slots, an external putter slot that keeps the putter well-separated, and plenty of pockets of all sizes.  The damn thing is going to be in a cart or on a trolley (as you say) so I don't care about weight.  I want room and club separation....and lot's of it.

I agree on the size/weight etc of the bag I just want room for everything and the seperate putter well is a must I think. I have narrowed it down to Powakaddy Deluxe or one of Taylormades larger bags, probably the

I currently use the  Callaway Org 14 Sport Cart Bag.  I would recommend veering away from this one.  The clubs get stuck going in and coming out and the bag is quite heavy.  I did hear that the Titleist Lightweight Cart bag is quite nice though.

IMPORTANT!!!!!!!

Do NOT buy a Titleist lightweight cart bag if you use a pull cart. The front of the bag slopes down and there is no possible way of securing the straps. I had one and tried all sorts of methods and it can't be done. Had to return it.

Pity, because it's a nice bag if it's vertical.

Joking aside, would recommend

If you need your bag waterproof in any way don't buy Powakaddy. The rain hood is designed in such a way that it leaves two decent sized holes letting water run down inside the bag (incidentally the design team at Powakaddy in a response email to me believe that the drain holes at the bottom of the bag combat this, so let the water in, it gets all your gear wet but hey, it drains away so that's OK).

 

I've enclosed a pic to show the flaw.

Why don't you just put that over the top rather than looping it underneath the handle? You could unsnap it if you needed to use the handle to put your bag in your car or something, but then the holes wouldn't be oriented under the handle and above the point where the bag stops.

Hi, I did try that but it still left holes for the water to get in in the form of two longish strip holes. What a crap design.

Sorry forgot to mention that as the fixings are Velcro on the front you need to use the strap loop as the rear fixing.
