Is anyone using the new Jones golf bags, and if so, what do you think? Do they have anything to protect graphite shafts?


I just came across this post after noticing a thread asking for the last thing you bought. By "new" Jones bags, I assume you mean their bringing back the old design? About 15 years ago, I had my clubs swiped out of my car. The biggest disappointment wasn't losing my sticks (time for new ones anyway) it was losing the Jones bag I had because they weren't making them any more. Seriously, the golf industry had gone nuts making bags that had more zippers than a Michael Jackson wardrobe. For all purposes you couldn't even find a decent carry bag. Even the "lightweight" ones that had the flimsy fading nylon were overblown with pockets for every gadget imaginable, including a pencil holder?! And yes, what about the friggin' company logo plastered all over the place?? Not only do I have to pay a couple hundred dollars to buy your golf bag, but now I am a walking billboard for you? Don't even get me started about the backpack straps. Maybe if your bags weren't so bulky I would need to strap in like a sherpa to carry it. In any case, when I found out Jones had brought back its classic carry bag, needless to say I was quite happy. The problem is the classic has no bag stand, is a bit flimsy for cart use, and to the question, of protecting graphite shafts, they're OK but not what you might find in other bags. That said, they do make a stand model that is more sturdy and has padding around the dividers. Still pretty much the same design as the carry model (though there are few more zippered sections too). Either way it is hard to beat the bags for clean, simple design and look.

I am lusting after a Jones Players Series carry bag.

I have about 6 or 8 useable bags right now, so bringing in another would disrupt marrital bliss, such as it is.

    • My fault, he came to me for a putting lesson and I taught him everything I know. Didn't I pick Xander?
    • My Dad was a purist... but not very sports savvy.  I grew up in St. Louis and when he learned the players on the Cardinals weren't from St. Louis that was it for him.  So for my Dad, the game was ruined years ago.
    • Looks like @onthehunt526 and I made the same pick (true I was first though), but Jordan needs to go on a run if he's going to get to -14 and win.
    • This is pretty much my issue. My eyes are actually improvin, which means that my distance glasses are bad for things not too far away, like a golf ball. I have to look under mine to write scores.
    • Thats 15 minutes on the last try that worked. Each failed attempt was like around 15 minutes. So like over 25 tries each 15 minutes -> 6-7 hours over 2 days. Plus there’s the time to get to the boss because of the reset.    I do know people spend days or even a week or weeks on a boss on harder games. That was an eye opener for me though, the time it takes for some bosses. I had no idea.
