I have an Ogio Grom bag, which has been very usefull for me. However, I recently bought a push cart (Bag Boy 600), and I am wondering if I should replace my bag for one that fits better in the cart an allows me to carry some extra stuff.
What is the difference (besides price/size) of staff and cart bags? Which one would you recommend? Why?

I have a Callaway staff bag and a Clicgear 2.0
I found that my staff bag and all other staff bags have a pocket on the backside. And this pocket is not accessible when mounted on the cart.
The designated cart bags do not have pockets on the backside.

Thats why I am considering the acquisition of a cartbag. Or a caddie for my staffbag

Staff bags do have that pocket that is hidden when it's on a cart. It's kind of a problem if you let it be. (You could put your stuff in the other pockets.)

I think that cart bags will probably have more pockets and dividers. They are probably more functional. Staff bags seem to allow for the clubs to be tangled. It's quite annoying. Staff bags are just so much cooler, though.

I would get a simple cart bag. Cheaper and does the same job (maybe even better).

i like the looks of staff bags, and i own several of them, but cart bags are the way to go when riding. they're much easier to handle to and from the cart. most staff bags are similar in regards to pockets, etc. you can get A LOT more options on cart bags

I sorta like both.

I may be getting a staff bag this year. There is no substitute for the room. I don't play oversize grips and I only carry 14 sticks but sometimes I fight like heck getting my irons pulled outa my current bag when riding.

A large staff bag would be sorta nice.

I may try to get one through my employer with their logo on it....at a low low price.

i would get a staff bag if i was fat and lazy and only rode when i played. But i have to walk, so i game a ping hoofer, also i dont have the game to have a staff bag...those are ment for the pros. Just get a cart bag, lighter more pockets and more practical...how many weekend warriors do you see with staff bags???

Yeah I have a cart bag for when I ride with my dad but until I'm a + handicap with an endorsement I don't think my ego is big enough to game a staff bag, as a collectors item, well that's another story.

I have a beautiful red, white, and blue Hogan staff bag that holds some favorite old clubs as a decoration in my den.

For an actual pratical gamer, however, the Ogio Anomaly cart bag is the best bag of any kind that I've ever owned.

This behaves pretty well on the pull cart as well as an electric cart. Every now and then clubs will get hung up inside it and you have to work 'em loose. I suspect that I may have dropped something down in the bag that's causing these very infrequent jam ups.

Overall, it's been a super bag.

I always liked the old staff bags because of the huge pocket on back (shoe pocket is what I guess it is). You could carry just about anything and everything in there (a lot of beer and ice). But that pocket is in the wrong place for push carts. I have carried cart bags for the last several years because the carry bags do not seem to sit very well on push cart or riding cart. Most cart bags are great on push cart, though, with all pockets accessible and they don't want to twist around like carry bags.

I'm fat, lazy, and ugly too! And, as a fat, lazy ugly American I can, and do use the biggest ugliest American Staff bag I can find (I'd use Rodney's if I could find it).

I love my staff bag. There are pockets for everything, and room to spare. The only pocket I cannot get to when I'm riding in my fat lazy E-Z GO golf cart is the tiny flat pocket just above where my name SHOULD BE! I play every weekend, and I use my fat lazy ugly staff bag, and so do a lot of my fat lazy ugly American friends. The only thing I DO NOT have is my name on my staff bag, because I am still just a weekend warrior! Cart bags are very good, and serve a useful purpose. And if you are so inclined, they will make the game more enjoyable for you! Have fun!

Don't sell yourself short.....you most likely have many years to evolve.

lets not get distracted by what i said in the first sentence of my post, you guys arn't getting the point. What i said was i walk alot so i have a stand bag. I would not suggest getting a staff bag, because cart bags are lighter, pockets are more acessable when on a cart....because after all thats what they are ment for, and far more practical than any staff bag. I also said that i would never use a staff bag(unless my handicap drops 10 shots), because those are ment for the pros. The thread starter also asked what bag is easier to use when on a push cart, the answer is ovbious that its a cart bag.

Understood....I was just poking at you anyway....no offense meant.

Another really cool thing about stand bags that does apply to most everyone is when you are practicing at a range. The legs deploy nicely and present your clubs easily as you work through the bag warming up. I also know a lot of guys who store their sticks whith the legs deployed...very stable. The leg systems on today's bags are so much better than the first attempts. These are lighter yet much stronger and almost automatically deploy when you set the bag down and lean it over. Very important, too, is the fact that the legs retract immediantly upon shouldering the bag. My last stand bag sucked outright because it would let the legs hang down and create problems as you were walking. I also argree with you, Pshizz, that I'd not feel comfortable with a big blinged out staff bag. Don't get me wrong, I'd love the roominess of it...especially this time of year when sweaters and golf jackets are constantly coming off / on and need storing......but.....I'd be self concious that my game doesn't measure up to the "big bag guys".

    • Day 356 The holes in my net have become unmanageable, and I've ripped holes in the target cloth blocking the holes in the net now too. While I wait for my warranty replacement (not sure how Rukket earns money considering all the nets I've been through), I just hit some 50% speed 5-irons with the feeling of the club head moving before the handle to start transition, and tried to keep the trajectory low to hit an integral part of the net.
    • When you missed that one foot putt did you tell him your name was Bill Buckner?  😁
    • That's a great hat! I have one just like it, plus various other Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins hats. I played with a Yankees fan one day while wearing a Red Sox hat,and I told him that he was a very lucky man because he could look at my hat for four hours.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Very wet, cartpaths only. Plugged drives all day. Played something that kind of resembled golf. Not going to bother analyzing anything since it's December 3rd. Was just happy to get out on a nice course. Highlights of the day were making birdie from a penalty area on #9 and the twisting sand cart paths I drove golf cart rally on.
    • I doubt you were actually swinging slower. Did you have any clubhead data?
