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.
