best cart bag?

21 posts in this topic

ok i know i started a thread last week asking about the best stand bag. i actually went out and bought the titleist x76 bag and walked a round with it yesterday. it was miserable. the bag was pretty heavy with all of my stuff in it and the straps really hurt my shoulders. the legs were terrible and my 2 year old $70 walter hagen bag had better legs before they broke. the pockets were nice but the dividers sucked on the titleist bag as well. there were only like 3 full length dividers so my club grips would get stuck constantly. overall i was displeased with the bag that i paid $140 for so i returned it. i also realized i don't really want to walk a round with my bag strapped to my back. i would rather ride in a cart or use a pull cart if i walk.

thus, please give suggestions for the best cart bag for the money. im sure most will have plenty of pockets and good dividers. so im looking for durability, appearance and cost. i would like to spend less than the $140 i got back for the titleist bag but i could possible spend 10-20 bucks more.

i did see a bag at dicks sporting goods that i liked. it was the titleist sc65 which i think is an older model that seemed to not look as big as a regular cart bag but it had everything i wanted and somewhat light. anyone have any experience with this bag?

I think the Sun Mountain C-130 is the ultimate cart bag. It's freaking huge and has pockets for everything imaginable. Also has 14 way full length club dividers. May be a bit out of your price range, Golfsmith retails this bag for $170. Golfsmith is always running specials and storewide discounts, so check their website.

alright i bought that titleist sc65 for $135 at dicks. it seems to have everything i want but we'll see tomorrow when i put it on a cart and see how it fairs.

the only problem now is that i left some stuff in the bag that i returned (the titleist x76). i left my tee pass as well as a new bag of tees. hopefully no one buys that bag and i can go get my stuff tomorrow.

good luck with the cart bag...never had one. i picked up the cleveland stand bag (nationwide tour model) for $180 and I love it. I walk almost everyday so I guess it was worth it. actually got it for christmas so i didnt really pay for it.

I have the Ogio, uhhh, Atlas. I wasn't sure because they've changed the style a little bit. Mine is from last year and has a neoprene three-ball pouch and is grey/black. It's very nice.

c130 looks like the best to me.. I think the best cart combo would be the Sun Mountain speed cart, with the SCB deluxe bag.

I really like my callaway bag, it came with these really comfy izzo straps, that i use to carry to and from the car.

I really like my Burton CXS hybrid bag as a cart bag, less so as a stand bag. It works great on my push cart and on a riding cart (legs lock closed and carry strap hides away in it's own pocket). It's balance is a little off for me as a carry bag though.

I just got the Taylormade Mag 71 cart bag last week. I love it so far. There are no zippers. it has magnets like the driver covers. It has individual club dividers. It is the best made bag that I found. Quality!!! It was a little pricey at the golf stores ($219) but I found it brand new on Ebay for $160

I think those brands are excluded at the request of the brands. I don't think the store decides to exclude these brands. In any event, I had previously recommended a Sun Mountain cart bag and Sun Mountain is NOT on the list of excluded brands.

I think people have a reservation about sun mountain because they went some well known PGA tour name emblazoned on their bag

The question is who is the best, the answer is sun mountain.

Exact same bag. Great bag, lots of storage...love the zipperless ball pocket. I got it off of Ebay for around $100.

The new Cleveland V-14 cart bag is really nice. It has your typical 14 slots, external putter well, and tons of pocket space. Also has 2 cooler pouches!! Looks really nice!

The funny thing is that I use a cart bag when I play. My shoulders are in bad shape from my football days, so I use a speed cart. But a few months back I bought a Sun Mountain MPB bag just to have the stand for when I go to the range.

Now I am really enjoying the 14 divider system, compared my 6 way divided cart bag. After reading this thread and looking at everyone's suggestions, I just ordered the Sun Mountain C-130. I hope it is as good as everyone says.

I have a Walter Hagen Eleven bag, molded top with built in club clips to keep them from banging around. I like it & it fits my needs perfectly. Now I just need to upgrade my pull cart, I chintzed out in the spring & just bought a $20 special that be honest works but it doesn't work well. The bag tends to rotate & the straps can't be cinched up tight enough to hold the bag well.

Will get one of the bagboy models since I never carry my clubs.

    • No, not exactly...just a general or rough definition of "in the vicinity" will do. Not all of us are 1.5ers. 
    • Which range in the US, the piece doesn't say. Trackman Range is basically setting up multiple radars, 3 for example, so that it can provide numbers for a range of a given length, like 130 yards in the example here and everyone on that range in selected spots basically has radar. Here's the piece that talks about the setup some more plus putting. The new ability to measure putt related data is interesting as well, wonder what it'll add in addition to SAM Puttlab. 
    • Well,  you said for most people,  and I do not have a large sample size to draw from in my own experience in golf so... I draw from my own personal experience.    As a player there was a time when I wanted to change the shape of my swing very badly in a certain way.  I have found that when I tried to do that and hit a ball at the same time it was too much for my brain and I would find contact with the ball over making the change or the change I saw on video would be miniscule if present at all.  I found though that if I removed the ball I was able to make changes.  Now,  obviously this was making an air swing that might not even hit a ball on the ground.  No accuracy,  but that's the point!  Free the brain from having to put clubhead on ball for a minute and focus on something else to harness it a bit!  I removed all intention of a precise strike or clubface control by doing this.  I am talking now seriously make a swing or two look at video...most times exaggerate the move even more...look at video.  Repeat repeat repeat.   Same exact video angle all the time!   This is not a fast process I am just explaining what I was doing.  Backyard was perfect for this feel vs real experimentation feedback loop I was working on.  The only purpose of this was to develop a way I could learn to somewhat repeat what I was looking for.  Stage two would be targeting a tuft of grass and doing it again video.  Stage three would be maybe going out to the range and like you said rehearsing a few and then bringing in the ball and striking it. For me going out and shanking and slicing a bucket of balls working on a change costs money and it's hard to convince myself it's a success regardless of what I see on video.  I've done it several times. So,  before I did the whole air swing thing I hit many buckets and basically it was not effective at anything except maybe excercise and grooving compensations to the point I built myself a nice yip impact block on full swings.  Yes I admit at first I thought I could beat golf by athletic ability alone like every moron high cap that beats balls ingraining moves that need to be eliminated if they are ever to improve.  Without a couple simple workable concepts imo hitting balls is really the worst thing to do for a relatively inexperienced player.  So,  that's my take. For background info on me I played tennis in college and it was sport of focus from maybe sixth grade on and I took proper instruction with one coach for quite a while.  I feel I maximized my potential there.  Often in college I would surf in the morning early (skipping class obviously) and then for the afternoon travel for matches and play my singles and a doubles match.  My coach seriously used to ask me if I surfed that day because he said I played better when I did! I have a lot of experience in teaching athletics of various sorts  including surfing and soccer and I have been told many many times by many people that I have a natural affinity for teaching in a minimalistic simple fashion.  I succeeded in many ways in athletics but for me it was always a personal focus on technique that led to success.  Growing up I could never jump high or run very fast or lift heavy weights,  but I developed a pretty good jump shot in hoops.   I could kick a ball far and score goals in soccer. I am just not one of those naturally athletic fearless types who as a kid could jump their bike real huge or Ollie a skateboard a couple feet into the air or do a tuck flip off a diving board into a pool without thinking a bit how they did it.  I can identify those types and imo there's something happening there most of the rest of us ain't got!  Sure I could flip but it was an extended body flop of sorts lol.  In tennis I got decent,  but it was from good instruction,  good practice, an absolute ton of hours of hard work,  and if I might say so very good technique.  In golf I can't break par so I don't really ever bother people in swing threads unless I can speak from personal experience.  I realize I am not qualified to develop a swing to say a par shooter,  so I don't try to.   I think I might have some thoughts relative to some though.  Sorry for boring those who have read this but I must say I value my time spent on this site highly;  most sites are crud these days filled with Internet warrior liars who don't offer much true Quality.        
    • Yeah, I dunno about any of that. There were almost 150 women playing in this tournament (28*5, right?), no doubt many of them using the restroom during a round, yet only two used a cart to get there.
