I just got a BagBoy Revolver and I have never seen a piece of golf gear inspire so much 'equipment envy'.

It has a dozen storage pockets, an umbrella sleeve, two external putter clips (or for any club), is very light, compact and colorful. But the thing that is the best is every club has its own slot and the entire inner section rotates like a 'lazy susan'. So when it is standing up in a cart you can just rotate the inner section of the bag in a circle to get to the club you want. And it has little notches that hold each club in place so they don't knock against each other.

I had people lined up at the range to get a look at it.

They are very nice bags . . . looked at one at Dick's last week. I need another golf bag like I need a hole in my head.

But it is nice to look at great equipment.

my father-in-law has one and it is pretty dope. I just can't do it, as I like to walk sometimes and I am still at the age and fitness level where I can carry the bag and not use a push cart. But if you are a frequent rider, then this bag is definitely up there.

I've been seeing more and more of these the last two years... and to be honest I just don't like them. I DO want a new bag (even though mine is only going on 3), but I don't think I would want a revolver. Something about the little clips gripping my clubs bugs me... also the idea of my grips sliding across the bottom of the bag as it rotates. I think I just prefer a nice medium sized cart bag with 14 lined pockets and some decent outer pockets.

What I DO want is a clicgear push cart to replace my bagboy... or maybe that new bagboy that also folds up ultra small.

I was looking at this bag when I was browsing the golf store.

First: the clips are not sliding across the bottom of the bag. it seems the bottom is also revolving along with the top.

Second: i dont see a use case for a revolving top. This is overengineering. I can see 14 divider with clips to hold the clubs. But why would you additionally have the top revolve?

How sturdy is that rotating top? It would suck to have that thing break.

The mechanics seem pretty solid. I considered that issue and after looking it over decided it was worth a try. My cost was $170, which for me works out to about 50 cents per use on an annual basis. It works nicely on my pull cart and when riding it will make club access easier.

... I like to walk sometimes and I am still at the age and fitness level where I can carry the bag and not use a push cart. But if you are a frequent rider, then this bag is definitely up there.

This bag is actually lighter than my Cobra cart bag I had previously. If I carried a bag, the rotating cylinder would not have much utility. But I have oversize grips so the individual slots are good for keeping them from binding together in the bottom of the bag.

I like my Revolver too (regardless if anyone cares!), but I don't use the revolving top and clip-locks as much as I thought I would. And I wish it had a putter tube instead of the putter clips, but still - great bag IMO. And you're right - it is funny how interested people are in it!

Something about the little clips gripping my clubs bugs me... also the idea of my grips sliding across the bottom of the bag as it rotates. I think I just prefer a nice medium sized cart bag with 14 lined pockets and some decent outer pockets.

The clubs are in tubes so the grips don't drag the bottom of the bag. The top is cusiony, rubbery - kind of like a car dashboard - so the clips

shouldn't damage the shafts. I haven't noticed any "ring around the collar" on my clubs yet, but I've only had my bag for about a year.

My dad is approaching 50 and after a few shoulder surgeries he is considering giving up walking and carrying a bag. He will likely use a pull cart and ride from now on, so I'm thinking this bag might be a good set up for him as he has trouble organizing the Ogio cart bag I got him 2 years ago.

Congrats on your purchase! As you can see from my sig, I have this bag also--I think it's awesome. I've had this bag for two years & couldn't be more happy with it. I use it a minimum of three times a week on a push cart & I've had no problems with it. It is a bit bulky when used on a regular cart, but then, most cart bags are. --LBB

Sounds like a cool bag. I have a Sun Mountain that similarly has 15 individual slots for clubs, one of which is lower down on the face and separated so your putter doesn't bang around. Don't know why they have 15 (umbrella?) but it's a great cart bag. The revolver thing is a great idea, though. Somebody's using their noggin.

I could see where these would be very helpful.

I was aggravated Friday when playing.....couldn't pull clubs out for some reason....they had been jammed in at grips.....had all the slots evenly loaded....not sure why it happened.

Got to see one of these first hand to really understand it.

My grips would also bind together in my old bag. Sometimes I wasn't sure I was going to get the d&%! club I wanted out at all.

I used this BagBoy on a course several times over the last few days and I am loving it more by the minute. There are other designs with slots that keep the grips separated, but the revolving cylinder is really "the bomb". No matter which club I want, I just spin the thing around and it is on top! It so well designed, I can spin the clubs around with one finger! SubPar

I just looked at one of these at Dick's Sporting Goods and I really liked it. I wouldn't have even thought to look if hadn't have been for your post.

The cylinder rotated a lot easier than I expected. I can see where this would be very handy as a cart bag.

By the way, because I was looking for the Bagboy I happened to notice little Walter Hagen stand bags for kids. On closer inspection I noticed that the sale tag said $6.91. I figured it was a misprint so I asked the cashier. Sure enough, that was the correct price. My 5 year old will be thrilled with his new stand bag. Almost as thrilled as I was paying seven bucks for it!

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
