best cart bag?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
ok i know i started a thread last week asking about the best stand bag. i actually went out and bought the titleist x76 bag and walked a round with it yesterday. it was miserable. the bag was pretty heavy with all of my stuff in it and the straps really hurt my shoulders. the legs were terrible and my 2 year old $70 walter hagen bag had better legs before they broke. the pockets were nice but the dividers sucked on the titleist bag as well. there were only like 3 full length dividers so my club grips would get stuck constantly. overall i was displeased with the bag that i paid $140 for so i returned it. i also realized i don't really want to walk a round with my bag strapped to my back. i would rather ride in a cart or use a pull cart if i walk.

thus, please give suggestions for the best cart bag for the money. im sure most will have plenty of pockets and good dividers. so im looking for durability, appearance and cost. i would like to spend less than the $140 i got back for the titleist bag but i could possible spend 10-20 bucks more.

i did see a bag at dicks sporting goods that i liked. it was the titleist sc65 which i think is an older model that seemed to not look as big as a regular cart bag but it had everything i wanted and somewhat light. anyone have any experience with this bag?

Re: best cart bag?

I think the Sun Mountain C-130 is the ultimate cart bag. It's freaking huge and has pockets for everything imaginable. Also has 14 way full length club dividers. May be a bit out of your price range, Golfsmith retails this bag for $170. Golfsmith is always running specials and storewide discounts, so check their website.

Re: best cart bag?

alright i bought that titleist sc65 for $135 at dicks. it seems to have everything i want but we'll see tomorrow when i put it on a cart and see how it fairs.

the only problem now is that i left some stuff in the bag that i returned (the titleist x76). i left my tee pass as well as a new bag of tees. hopefully no one buys that bag and i can go get my stuff tomorrow.

good luck with the cart bag...never had one. i picked up the cleveland stand bag (nationwide tour model) for $180 and I love it. I walk almost everyday so I guess it was worth it. actually got it for christmas so i didnt really pay for it.

I have the Ogio, uhhh, Atlas. I wasn't sure because they've changed the style a little bit. Mine is from last year and has a neoprene three-ball pouch and is grey/black. It's very nice.

Re: best cart bag?

c130 looks like the best to me.. I think the best cart combo would be the Sun Mountain speed cart, with the SCB deluxe bag.

I really like my callaway bag, it came with these really comfy izzo straps, that i use to carry to and from the car.

I really like my Burton CXS hybrid bag as a cart bag, less so as a stand bag. It works great on my push cart and on a riding cart (legs lock closed and carry strap hides away in it's own pocket). It's balance is a little off for me as a carry bag though.

Re: best cart bag?

I just got the Taylormade Mag 71 cart bag last week. I love it so far. There are no zippers. it has magnets like the driver covers. It has individual club dividers. It is the best made bag that I found. Quality!!! It was a little pricey at the golf stores ($219) but I found it brand new on Ebay for $160

Golfsmith is giving 20% off on everything except clubs and balls. The promotion runs through 7/1/07. You can pick up one of the nicer cart bags and still fit within your budget. If you buy online the promotion code is: EPS726SAL

I think those brands are excluded at the request of the brands. I don't think the store decides to exclude these brands. In any event, I had previously recommended a Sun Mountain cart bag and Sun Mountain is NOT on the list of excluded brands.

Re: best cart bag?

I think people have a reservation about sun mountain because they went some well known PGA tour name emblazoned on their bag

The question is who is the best, the answer is sun mountain.

Exact same bag. Great bag, lots of storage...love the zipperless ball pocket. I got it off of Ebay for around $100.

The new Cleveland V-14 cart bag is really nice. It has your typical 14 slots, external putter well, and tons of pocket space. Also has 2 cooler pouches!! Looks really nice!

Re: best cart bag?

I've also got a Sun Mountain C-130 and I think it's fantastic.

Re: best cart bag?

The funny thing is that I use a cart bag when I play. My shoulders are in bad shape from my football days, so I use a speed cart. But a few months back I bought a Sun Mountain MPB bag just to have the stand for when I go to the range.

Now I am really enjoying the 14 divider system, compared my 6 way divided cart bag. After reading this thread and looking at everyone's suggestions, I just ordered the Sun Mountain C-130. I hope it is as good as everyone says.

Re: best cart bag?

I have a Walter Hagen Eleven bag, molded top with built in club clips to keep them from banging around. I like it & it fits my needs perfectly. Now I just need to upgrade my pull cart, I chintzed out in the spring & just bought a $20 special that be honest works but it doesn't work well. The bag tends to rotate & the straps can't be cinched up tight enough to hold the bag well.

Will get one of the bagboy models since I never carry my clubs.
