I'm happy enough with my current bag (see sig.) but I'm looking for a second bag for various reasons I don't feel like getting into. But I need help with my decision....... and who knows better than you people.

I've narrowed my list down to 8 bags.

Ogio Edge.


Ogio Grom.


Ogio Ozone.


Ogio Syncro.


Ogio VaporLite.


TaylorMade TMX.


Callaway FT Performance.


Callaway X Series.



The main reason for the change and my only real gripe about my current bag is that my current bag has an issue with clubs tangling. So most specifically, I'm looking for feedback on these bags in regards to that.

The other most important factor is that it fits on a ClicGear well.

Weight has a decent role as well. Yeah.. it's going on a clicgear.... but I golf a few times a week walking 18 on a hilly course, so it just makes things easier if it's light. Not really a deal breaker though.

Price is a factor... but I never have an issue with splurging if I think there is value in the extra money spent.

A BIG plus for a bag (though not really something I consider a necessity) is having a cooler sort of compartment to help keep some cold water or something.

Basically the list goes roughly like this:

1. Ogio Syncro. I assume the clubs won't get tangled based on the divider system with full length dividers. Price is great right now. The issue is with the weight. I find myself wondering why it has a 15 club system when the max allowable is 14 clubs in a bag.....

2. I love the first callaway bag i posted. Price is a little steep.... but I can deal with that. Weight seems to be kinda up there though... The other callaway bag seems like a nice compromise.... but i just really like the look of the first one much more.

3. The taylormade bag is about the only TM bag I like. I'm not a huge fan of red... but I like this bag. it's light. It's a bit pricey but i could deal with it. My big issue is the club divider system. 8 slots and four full length dividers? i feel like the clubs are just gonna tangle. anyone have feedback on this. obviously its cool to match a bag to my set... but thats just a bonus... not something i look for.

4. I'm wondering about the ogio's divider system for the other bags. they have various prices and weights and designs to choose from.... but im not sure the divider system works for me. my current bag has a similar LOOKING system... but I dont think it has as many full length dividers. so comments regarding clubs tangling with these are greatly appreciated. Further, the fact that ogio has so many different bags confuses me...... so any insight as to the differences between these is appreciated.

I have an Ogio Flight SS (close to the Ozone, design has changed slightly) from a couple of years ago. Great bag! Came with the 'Shling' strap , that actually was quite comfortable for carrying the bag (after 2 week break-in period). I have since switched to putting it on a ClicGear cart. Best bag I've ever owned (2 Sun Mountain bags before that).

If you are planning on walking at all, i have the ping hoofer bag which are excellent bags with a lot of color combinations. Really comfortable and light.

I have a Callaway light stand bag, its super light, comfortable, and looks great. Only problem with it is its a little cluttered when carrying 14 clubs. Theres access to 2 pouches easily while its on your back, as well as a "fluids holder" aka a little nook to put your water bottle. I find that very convenient, although I usually put my cell phone there for easy access. Theres also a little bit of netting that is easily accessible while walking next to the fluids holder and that is convenient to put a couple extra balls or something in.

I've got an Ozone and my dad has a Grom. The only difference I've noticed is the Grom has the zipperless ball pocket which is a nice feature. No complaints about either bag though. That Taylormade is a beautiful looking bag though and compliments your clubs rather nicely!

+1 for the Ogio Sychro. I picked it up last week because I wanted full length dividers and more storage (and a cart bag that wouldn't move around so much). The 15th slot is holding a ball retriever right now. I had one in an old bag and figured I'd carry it since I have the room now.

As far as divider system goes, you just have to go check them out in person. I bought online but spent some time in the PGA superstore to try to get a feel for them.

I really want a four-5 but I'm gonna probably have to settle for the Taylormade Tourino cuz it's half the price and I still need a lot of other stuff, like a lob wedge, putter, and irons. I hope to be able to get a bag, putter, lob wedge and maybe another dozen e7+'s after my birthday.

if you don't get ogio you are uper dumb

I had an ogio and my friend had one (we played together a lot) and half the time we put our bags down next to the green they fell over because the legs didnt come out far enough. It was pretty annoying.

I have a Grom that the zipper blew out of and Ogio's customer service only offered me a 50percent break on another bag so I told them to stick it.I ordered a Cally FT because Callaway's customer service is the best in all of golf bar none.The FT is a littlepricey but my Grom was 189 also and the damn zipper popped with in the first year.I had the wife rivet velcro on the side pocket to keep it closed but sometimes I am johnny apple tee and drop them all over the course as I walk.I will never again buy any OGIO products because of that bag and the way they treated me.

I have the edge. It's a sexy beast. And it wasn't that much at Alfs Golf Shop. They had a sale and I got it for $130. It has place for EVERYTHING. And more.

The best thing about it is the straps. They make a 40lb bag feel like 10lbs. They are amazing straps, and you will love the bag. I haven't had to deal with Ogio yet. No problems in the bag over the last 5 months. So far so good. Good luck finding a good bag man.

I've had the Cally X-Series in Black for about 6 weeks and so far I like it a lot. I had the Ozone, but returned it for the Cally - I liked the way the clubs fit in the Cally better.

I don't think you could go wrong with it, but I'd try to check out any of the ones on that list in person before you decide. It helped me to put the ones I was thinking about side-by-side and then compare the features - especially the pockets, etc.
