Anyone keeping an eye on a 2013 bag?

21 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone had their eye on a 2013 carry/stand bag with a 14-way divider. If so, could you suggest one for me, a mostly walker, sometimes cart-er? I had a Callaway Diablo Edge stand bag but got a very generous offer from a fellow Sand Trapper so I'm now in the market for a new bag.

I tried out the Nike Performance Carry 2012 but the colors clashed with my clubs, and the rumors are true: the base is not very cart friendly.

I really liked the 2012 Grom XX from Ogio but I saw that the 2013 ones should be out soon with improved straps.

Price range is below $250. Thank you!

Mizuno has come out with some Aerolite bags with some pretty interesting designs lately.  One of them has a pair of battling samurai and kanji on it that Im seriously considering getting.

I am also in the market.  From what I understand Ogio has improved the stand system as well on the 2013 bags.

Really? That would make a difference to me. It seems like Ogio already has the thick stands and good rubber pieces that make ground contact that I prefer (compared to the Nike Performance Carry) but it seems like it doesn't extend enough and would be unstable. What in particular are they changing with the stand?

I can't seem to find any photos of this. Do you happen to have any, Gaijin?

I was just looking at the Sun Mountain bags a few weeks back... They are damn nice for a carry bag.  Check them out.

Yeah, a Titleist 14way.  It bothers me that I have a Tmade bag with no TaylorMade clubs.  As I will be upgrading my irons to Titleist as well next season.

The Manager at the Edwin Watts store locally told me he met with Ogio execs and was told they are going with a system more like Sun Mtn & Ping use.  I have a 2010 Ogio bag, and I really do not like the stand.  However a friend of mine just bought the 2013 Nimbus bag and it has a much improved system.

tgw has a smallish image of the samurai Aerolite bag [ MIZUNO AEROLITE [X] STAND BAG SAMURAI ].  But when you click to view the image or Check Stock it seems it is not yeat available.  Too bad, because the artwork is very detailed and needs a ZOOM feature

I want a Cobra stand/cart bag - not a staff bag though because they're way too big and bulky for what I need to carry. Though I may go with a '13 Ogio. A buddy of mine bought the 2012 Assassin and it's gorgeous - hoping for a '13 remake.

I've been back and forth between an Ogio and SunMountain... I'm really digging the SunMountain Hybrid as most of my rounds are with a cart so I'm not as worried about the additional weight as long as I have the carry option.

I always have bag envy. I love to look at them in the store and want to take one home. Then I think about how many rounds I could play with that money and the fact that my bag works fine now and I end up keeping mine and playing more. There is only so much gear switching my wife will put up with and I think a bag upgrade is one too many.

The 14way is a great bag and I love mine, but if you want to save a couple bucks get the sun mountain Four 5 it's essentially the same exact bag you're just not paying the premium for the Titleist name.

Yeah but I can get this bag at a discount through someone in the industry, also by next season most of clubs will be Titleist once the irons come in only the wedges won't match.

I'm always somewhat in the market for a new bag. My current Ogio is only a year old but the legs are a little wonky.

I want a Llama or Sherpa by MacKenzie from the Walking Golfer. Not a 14-way but I love the classic look and they are very light. No legs-very minimalist but classy. Just can't decide which I want, and bite the bullet on the $235.

At that price Peter Jacobsen should deliver it in person.

I you want fairly light weight, 14 way stand bag, the Sun Mountain Four5 is the way to go... I love mine and before I had this one I had a Titleist Premium 14way which is essentially the same bag. Sun Mountain also makes the hybrid bag, which is a 14 way stand bag but it is a bit heavier. You can think of it like this, the Hybrid is more of a cart bag with legs whereas the Four5 is a larger stand bag that fits well on a cart.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
