You might also want to check out the Snell MTB line, the Black with a bit less spin for shorter irons, the X for a little more in the short irons. I switched from ProV1 a few years ago, I basically couldn't tell the difference.
Some might enjoy competing with and against their counterparts on the LPGA tour.
In terms of financials, I don't know that there would be any disadvantages. Unless I'm mistaken, players are not paid for their participation in the President's Cup.
And since I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that the event is operated by the PGA Tour, the cross promotional benefits could actually be quite advantageous to the tour as a whole.
I agree with you that the 2019 President's Cup was quite enjoyable. But I think I would be just as interested - if not moreso - if the American men & women teamed up together against their international counterparts.
Likewise, as I also carry my bag.
Many moons ago after taking up the game , I used to put a carry bag in the back of my van ( Truck) and head to the course after work and get some play / practice.
I soon tired of swapping all the gear from my big bag to the carry bag , and eventually bought a better carry bag , and stuck with it ever since.
Also it helps with my posture
